Bear Canister Rental

(4 customer reviews)

From: $10.00

When I’m out backpacking with my family, I want them to be safe. A quality lightweight bear canister is a simple low-cost safety measure. Our Bear Resistant Containers are top quality. They are expert tested (by bears) and have proven very effective in not only reducing odor transmission of the food inside, but also in keeping even the hungriest of bears out of your food supply. It’s just a simple item, but it does it’s job keeping people and bears safe!

Bear Canister Rental

 It’s true; a bear canister also is a safety item for bears. If bears find human food, they will come back to that site over and over until they are relocated or euthanized. Keep a bear safe, keep you safe, use a bear canister.
APPROX. SPECS:
  • 8.8″ diameter X 12″ long
  • Weight 2.7 lbs.
  • Holds approximately 6 days of food for 1 person.

We rent out Frontiersman and Garcia bear cans. If you have a preference of which one you would like, please put that in the notes section when checking-out. A companion product which makes carrying the canister easy is a Bear Canister Carry Case. This will allow you to latch the canister to the outside of your backpack.

    Took this guy through glacier national park and the grand Tetons and it seemed to serve its purpose

    Decided to rent bear Cannister instead of buying since we were from the east where they are rarely required. Worked perfectly, the first night a bear knocked them around a bit and they held up with only a few scuffs and no food was damaged. We finished our trip with no problems. Great price and decent product, I do wish they offered some lighter ones.

      Glad to hear your bear canister held up to a bear. We do sell Ursack bear-proof bags that are much lighter weight. https://www.outdoorsgeek.com/product/ursack-major/ Please keep in mind not all wilderness areas have approved them and still require the hard-sided ‘heavier’ cans like the one you rented.

    No problem with bears for the trip.

    Used this for about a week in the Roosevelt National Forest. The first night there our neighbors saw a bear at the entrance to the campgrounds, about a half mile down the road. We kept the can in the car most of the trip, except when out hiking.

    If there had been bears, they would have had a comfortable stool.

    We didn’t come across any bears, so I can not attest to its bear proof qualities. However, I did use this canister as a stool by the campfire, and it served that purpose well. Overall, would sit on again.
