Simple and Effective
Hope I never have to use it but love to carry it. Definitely love the security of having it with me "just in case". The safety is very simple and easy to use. Pair it with a practice canister for extra practice.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
When heading into wilderness areas with a lot of bear activity, having one of these canisters is a generally good idea. I had personally never carried bear spray with me before this summer, and had a couple of passive run-ins with bears. After buying this and taking it to Yosemite, we found ourselves less than 50 feet away from a mama and baby bear. While I did not need to actually deploy the spray, I had the canister accessible and ready if something were to go wrong.
It'll Work if I Use It...
But I hope I never have to. If you're going into bearitory, BRING THIS STUFF. The lever and safety mechanism seem very easy to use, and the holster holds the canister well. It's a solid insurance policy to keep you and your trail buddies safe.
