Bear Vault Food Canister - Large
Canisters are required in at least one Georgia stretch and could be required for backpacking in other areas as black-bear incursions increase. These canisters are Forest Service-recommended for Appalachian Trail backpacking.
The large canister (BV500) weighs 2 pounds, 9 ounces, before adding 7 days of food.
Built-in guides keep tie-down straps in place.
