The concept for the BearVault was born during a 2002 Sierra backpacking trip with friends from the San Diego Hiking Club . Camped around a mountain lake, the group was lamenting the problems they had with bear canisters. Everybody agreed the available canisters were too heavy, held too little and had too small an opening.
Since 2004, they've made a few design changes and have also been grizzly bear approved by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee. This involves a similar one-hour test in the hands of a mighty Grizzly.

I love this shop! I am a repeat offender. Such an easy process to purchase items here. I love to use the “filter” button to narrow down what I need, whether it is a brand or an item under $20. I honestly think you could outfit yourself for a hike just thru this site- so cool! Quick shipping and my favorite part … I love getting my personalized note from GGG crew members. Such an awesome touch. Keep up the amazing job GGG!!🧡
Hands-, feet-, head-, whatever- down, simply the best. You just can't do much better than GGG. The positivity is welcomed and infectious. From the descriptions of the products, the interactions on emails, the little notes on the receipts, the fast service, the QUALITY of the products... I have only good vibes for these guys. And I must have about 5 of those teeny tiny toothbrushes :-D Cheers!!!
Garage Grown Gear is such a wonderful shop for any ultralight backpacking enthusiast looking to support small companies! Their staff are so friendly and helpful, they ship very quickly, and they always have awesome gear from awesome little companies. They also provide all kinds of helpful information and fun reading materials in their newsletters. I recommend this place to all of my friends and I recommend them to you as well!
