Is it worth the weight? I guess itís not worth it until a pushy bear strolls by.
I have a love/hate relationship with my Bear Canister (BV450). Itís way nicer than hauling a wet bag around and so much easier than trying to hang. I prefer it to using the stinky dirty bear lockers in some campsites. On the other hand, sheesh, you spend a fortune to cut weight off your gear and then you add 1.5-2lbs of plastic in so when those Bear Lockers are available I still end up planning for them.
