USA Made Bear Resistant Containers, Bear Bags and Bear Canisters

While backpacking in most areas of the United States, it is suggested that you use a bear bag, bear canister, or other bear resistant container for storing your food. Most parks and wilderness areas encourage hanging food from a special bear pole or between two trees in such a way that bears and other animals cannot reach it. Others even require the use of a bear proof container.
