Cheap Bear Canisters

Harbor Freight Bear CanisterHarbor Freight, of all places, sells a bear canister for a mere $29.87. It looks an awful lot like the Garcia Bear-Resistant Container at REI, which sells for $69.95.

I've heard this bear canister isn't approved for use in the Sierra. I have no idea what, if any, certification it's received.

  2. That’s too bad. Then again, perhaps it was low-quality and this is a good thing!
