We did a recent hike in the Adirondack High Peaks on 8/20/08, in the Colden Lake area. We had planned a four day hike to help prepare for a week long hike in the Grand Canyon.

On the first night a bear easily opened both our canisters ruining our trip. He was able to bite the side of the lid over the safety tab that the cover turns past to secure the lid. The rest is history.

We called BearVault and they were less than helpful and hung up the phone when we told them what we thought of their product. We had a false sense of security which ended up ruining our trip. There are postings in the Colden Dam area boards but not at the upper works trailhead where we initiated our hike.

Beware of this product.
