However, when we arrived at our lodge in Glacier I asked our host (an experienced trail guide) if bear bells are recommended or not. He said no. Apparently studies have shown that bears don't recognize the bells as anything significant, so bells aren't considered effective. Singing, talking loudly, even the sound of a snapping stick would be more recognizable for a bear. Our host said that "trail etiquette" is actually to walk 10 yards (I think he said yards) apart, and talk loudly enough that you and your hiking companion can hear each other without facing each other. I ran through most of my (very limited) singing repertoire while on the trail - I'd expect that there are few bears seeking counseling because of that :-)
All that, plus bear spray as an absolute last resort. Since bear spray can't be carried on an airplane, the lodge has quite a few abandoned cans, and lends them out freely along with instructions on how to use them correctly (very important).
So, we carried bear spray for a week, and didn't see a single bear on the trail. I guess it worked!
As for the bells, I'm attaching one to my patio door so I know if anyone comes in.
These bells also work for solo hikers. Wrap one around a backpack's rear strap and you will alert any bear. As for mountain lions...eh...
-It made noise to announce my presence in the trail
-Magnet was easy to position to silence the bell when needed
-Velcro helps to keep the magnet from connecting with the ball
-Easy to attach to your person or your pack
-Easy to block out the ringing once you're used to it
-Useful to keep track of hiking partners
-Ball comes off easy the magnet, so some unintended rattling may happen...but easy to fix by readjusting the magnet
Not sure if it does what it is meant to do: keep the animals away or attract them for an easy meal.
Good quality though. Strap is very sturdy. Paint is thick and colors are great.
