About this Gear

Bear-Free Food For 7 Days

Whether you’re hiking one of the many trails that require a canister, or just heading out into the backcountry, it’s always a good idea to have a BearVault BV 500 handy. Designed to carry 7 days of food for a solo hiker, the BV 500 has a wide opening that allows you to stuff it full for your trip. Put it in your pack or strap it to your pack using the built-in strap guides and don’t worry about weight: this thing weighs only 2lbs, 9oz.


  • Safe against Grizzly Bears and Black Bears
  • Lightweight design for backpacking
  • Wide opening for easy packing, searching, and unpacking
  • Sturdy transparent polycarbonate housing takes a beating without shattering
  • Built-in guides keep ties in place so you don’t have to have an extra carrying case
