Bear cans - great for the bears, not so great for keeping our backpacks light and small. Regardless, they are becoming a common and required part of backcountry travel, and it's important to be responsible about how we store our food - not just for our sake, but for the wellbeing of the bears.
Many of the popular models today require a flathead screwdriver to operate, necessitating a multi-tool, coin, or something similar. Lose your “tool” in the backcountry, and it’s going to be a long, hungry hike back to the car.
The large bear can tool is the most user friendly size available, and is hung on a generous 30" microcord loop for security. It's especially great if your fingers are cold, numb, or you have arthritis. Tuck it into your waistbelt pocket or wear it around your neck. You’ll never have to worry about keeping track of loose coins or washers in your pockets again.
