2) You can not take this on an airplane as either checked or carry-on.
3) If you are flying you might think about shipping it to your hotel, or just buying it at your location.
4) Bear spray is the most effective if you ever have a problem. A research project in Alaska tracked deterrents and found firearms only around 52% effective and bear spray over 90%.
5) They offer training sessions at some National Parks, which are worthwhile (check their Park Newspaper). In a nutshell they advise if being charged to 1st lay down a cloud of pepper spray the same way you would use a fire extinguisher in the 25-30 yard range. 2nd if the attack continues then aim for the face. Expect blow back from the spray which will make you feel blind as your eyes water and obstruct your breathing. So use your off hand to shield your face.
6) Many of the experienced people discourage the use of Bear Bells. The believe it creates a sound which attract curious bears.
7) The pepper spray never goes bad, but leaks around the seal can make it lose pressure. Weigh your bottle when new. Any significant drop in weight means there is a leak. I do leave my spray in my truck and have not had a problem even in warm summer Montana weather, but I wouldn't want to leave it in direct sun.
8) Groups of 4 or more adults in the back country have never had a bear attack.
9) Pepper is a food, and once sprayed has been known to attract animals a few days later.
they went running (and bawling).
A word of advice, take note of the wind direction before you use it because it disperses widely into a large orange/brown cloud and burns to all getout. I got a little bit on my arm and had to spend around 5 minutes washing it off. You might want to wear long clothing too. Also, make sure the bear isn't boxed in so you don't get attacked.
It works, I gave it four stars because I would prefer it had a longer spray before dispersal so you don't have to be as close to the animal.
