The BearVault Model BV 500 Food Canister is a large container for keeping your food out of the bear's hands. Bigger in size than the 450, this polycarbonate cylinder secures a 7 day food capacity. Fill it up with all your yummy favorites, close up the lid and it will just become a little toy for the local grizzly or black bear to bat around on the ground. I'm sure it will get discouraged and amble off eventually. The bear, not the canister. Once it's safe, grab your stash and have yourself a meal.
