  1. Heavy 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on Mar 29th 2018)

    After reading about protecting my food and bears on the AT I decided to buy the smaller Bearbox. It is heavy when filled with food. I decided I didn’t need so much food!!
    It fits in my pack nicely and I’ve added some items other than food!
    I’m keeping it!
