DSettahr thank you for the details. Our only two known bear encounters were both in Massasauga in Ontario. As you said we messed up with the rules. Had all food and toiletries in the bear canister nice and safe. Had the eucalyptus bug spray out because, well, it was Canada and night! But the bug spray was stored in the same zip lock baggies as the pina colada scented sun screen. THAT is what he snatched and ran with.

rbi99 I never understood the engineering behind the Ursack and similar. Sure, it may be bear proof but it is certainly bear portable. The Garcia is designed so those without opposing thumbs have trouble picking it up and such. Certainly easier to carry for the hiker but possible for the bruin too.
