light weight and keeps bears out.   You just tie it to a tree.   Downside is food can get crushed and you need to keep food in zip lock bags because it is not water resistant.  

that's pretty nifty, but its a no go for NPS backcountry :(

Interesting.  Had not heretofore been aware of that.  Not sure I want crushed food though.

In the white mountains, I'm not too concerned about bears, although they are there, it's mostly the small animals I'm trying to keep out.  The company claims their product is allowed in all but a few national parks.    I find that the canister takes up too much room in the pack.

This is how people think they are going to be campingPikeNatlForestCampsite1.jpg when they get an RV:

 

But this is what they really end up doing:

With a tucked in collared shirt?  No track I've ever been to.
