Although not IGBC-certified, the Wild Ideas Bearikade is widely accepted by US federal land-management agencies as an acceptable means of hard-sided food storage. The Scout and custom sizes may not be approved – check with your land management agency!

We like it for its light weight and secure closure mechanism.

Important usability tips:

  • Do not store this canister near cliffs where a bear can roll it off the cliff. Carbon fiber is brittle and will break if it suffers a long fall.
  • Secure all three screws to the lid. If you don’t, a bear can find a way to insert the tip of its claw into the gap between the lid and the canister and pry it open. Don’t be lazy.
