Counter Assault Bear Keg
Basically it a good solid canister and very basic.
Price Paid: $65
Basically it a good solid canister and very basic. Just like the kiss rule (keep it simple stupid) the 3 locks are easy to open with a knife blade or a coin or any other thing you can fit in the slots
This canister would be more suited for a group of people or one person for a week trip so yes it is large. It can fit all of my food, snacks, soap & cleaning items, bug spray, cook-set, utensils & stove (with out the canister) for a 5 day trip. The size is just right for my external frame pack it will fit inside the pack or straps to the top or bottom with no problem.
If you are a 1 - 3 people weekend camper only it's too big for you, but if it's a group or you're a multiple day camper you should consider this canister.
