Daniel N.wrote a review of Bear Vault BV500 Bear Resistant Food Canister on July 3, 2010
I purchased the BV500 and was pretty happy with it. One thing I would add or change is the lid and add more gripping or friction tape in order to grip the lid when pushing in to open it when raining. One more thing I added was reflective tape both red and white strips in order to locate my container at night or in the morning.
Overall great Bear Vault with lot's of room and ez to pack in my Gregory Palisades 80.
