Default Bear Canisters

Do any of you use Bear Canisters in the Coast Mountains? If so, how heavy are they? Is there a local retailer? If not, how do you stow your food in the alpine?

I use a Garcia Bear Cannister. It weighs 3 Lbs and looks quite bulky but I was surprised at how well it fit in my Osprey pack.

I only carry it in areas above the treeline.

MEC and REI carry them.

See you on the mountain!

hey rerun - here's a thread that was started on the topic of bear cannisters: https://www.clubtread.com/sforum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=150

There are actually a couple of others which you can find by using the search feature. Try searching for bear cannisters and select the "Match exact phrase" option.

I'd rather be hiking!
