The BV500-Journey is the gold standard for multi-day adventures, long distance hikers, and aspirational thru hikers. The largest and most spacious of BearVault canisters, BV500s have logged more miles than any other canister. Whether packing a few hearty meals for a group, or counting every ounce of calories to reach your goal, the BV500 is up for the journey, fitting 7 plus days of food.
The new BV475-Trek is perfect for weight conscious, long distance hikers, needing the high volume to weight ratios our canisters provide. The Trek answers an increasing demand for smaller food storage options that fit into smaller, lightweight packs. Depending on experience handling hydrated and caloric weight efficient foods, the Trek allows backpackers to make efficient packing choices for a 5-6 day trip.
A classic for shorter trips, the BV450-Jaunt is the ideal bear canister for a weekend trip for two, or a solo trip for a few days. Compact enough to fit into smaller packs, yet spacious enough for a wholesome amount of food, the BV450-Jaunt keeps your food safe, protects bears and other wildlife, and keeps your backcountry jaunt going, storing 3-4 days of food.
