What I would really love to see is a review in BP of lightweight packs that will hold a big canister and still have room for 3-7 days worth of gear.
The one thing that I haven't seen suggested is to put your bear canister inside a plastic garbage bag and air seal it with a tie. This will keep the bears away from your camp. Just because they can't eat your food doesn't mean you're not attracting bears.
bear cannister video is comedy. not in the least useful in selling cannister. spend some money and get a video of a real bear.
Putting your fuel with your food is quite possibly the stupidest idea I have ever heard.
would you also store your camp stove n fuel in there as well?
