Thanks! Didn't realize they cost so much, at least that kind, but I guess for what it's made out of it's expected. I know the Carbon Fiber hoods on cars aren't cheap, but they definitely do the trick too.

I usually hike with one or more of my sons (11, 13, and 15 years old), so we have two bear cans.

Nice cans. Two thumbs way up for the Recall Walker sticker!
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
