Not to beat a dead horse, but we rented Bearikades for our JMT trip in 2004 and were extremely pleased with them. A bear kicked one out of our camp and then seriously messed around with it on our first night (Forsythe trail junction -- we'd been warned about her but just couldn't go any farther, and we heard that she was put down a day later; *sigh*), and there was virtually no damage to the canister or its contents. If I often hiked in bear country, that's the kind I'd buy, pricey or not. (Rental is not too bad, tho.)
