BearVault BV500 Food Storage Container

The BearVault BV500 food storage container is ideal for longer excursions into the bear country. It's nearly indestructible plastic and lid makes it impossible for even the most determined bear to access your food. Unlike traditional bear hangs that require a tree, the Bear Vault can be safely stored on the ground - albeit at least 100 yards downwind from your campsite.
