From the manufacturer
When only the Best will Do
'Making Grown Men Cry Since 1975', SABRE Security Equipment Corporation is proud to manufacture the world’s number one selling pepper sprays: SABRE & SABRE Red. The brand chosen by both law enforcement agencies and consumers, SABRE backs the most effective pepper spray with education and training to maximize personal safety.
'When Only The Best Will Do', SABRE offers Frontiersman Bear Spray for those who venture into bear country. Following EPA guidelines, Frontiersman contains the industry’s strongest formula (2.0% Major Capsaicinoids) and manufactures the only 9.2 ounce canister to fire up to 35 feet away – that’s up to 20 feet further than other bear sprays. Our 7.9 ounce canister fires 30 feet – up to 15 feet further than other sprays. Since bears can cover over at least 30 feet per second, carrying Frontiersman within the very accessible hip holsters gives you a big advantage against an 800-pound charging animal.
Frontiersman was field tested and repeatedly proven effective at deterring charging bears by both the Elmendorf Air Force Base in Elmendorf, Alaska and Brown Bear Resources in Missoula, Montana. Frontiersman Bear Spray is effective against Black, Brown, and Polar Bears.
FRONTIERSMAN’s 9.2 oz canisters fires 35 feet, the industry's greatest range and up to 20 feet further than the other bear sprays. The 7.9 oz canisters fires 30 feet, up to 15 feet further than the other bear sprays. This is a huge advantage considering charging bears can cover over 30 feet per second.

As effective as this stuff would be on a bear, it will also work well on a dog, mountain lion, or violent screwtards in a pick up truck.
As these are really single use devices and I suspect most aren't tested by users I am worried about this being a more common problem than just one can. How do you know? I certainly would test any of these that I was going to carry to make certain I had one that worked.
The capsaicin is strong. I have old cans that expired a few months ago, and I tried one. Spraying it in bursts is fine, but my sister-in-law decided to empty the entire can like a total n00b. This caused some dripping under the nozzle, which is expected when you just do full blast until it empties out like a total dufus. You're supposed to spray in medium bursts. Anyways, I was holding the can and trying to do something else with my Nikon camera and accidentally touched the "stuff" that was dripping on the side of the can. I made it to the bathroom after a 5 min hike and washed everything off thoroughly. There were no signs of anything on my hands. In fact, as far as I know it, it only got on one hand. But just for good measure I did not touch my hands together (i.e. didn't get the stuff on my unaffected hand), even when washing off the capsaicin. It was in the high 80s for the temp so with my good hand, I patted some water on my neck. About 10 seconds later, I started feeling this intense pain sensation on my neck, as if someone was lighting a fire on me, constantly. This proceeded for a good 45 minutes. It hurt so bad I had to use ice on my neck, which seemed to help some. Without having access to ice, I'm sure it would have felt worse and lasted longer. And, you have to remember, this is with my seemingly good hand (which I washed previously just for good measure by putting it under the running water and rubbing my fingers against the hand - even though it didn't touch any of the spray material as far as I could tell). In other words, even if you wash your hands and somehow touch sensitive parts of your body, you will be burning in pain. The palm of my one hand originally had the spray material and that wasn't affected. But then again, if you learn about poisonous plants, you will realize most of the time the skin on your palm is so tough it's rarely affected by anything.
This same brand I originally bought many years ago (expired in May, 2016) came with holsters which I still use. The new ones I purchased last month (June, 2016 - expires 2019) did not come with holsters. The clip is decent and does a good job of preventing accidental firing of the can. I'm not sure what the other guy was smoking but he must have not taken care to securely store the bear spray during transportation. Treat it like a gun. You wouldn't just let it lay around somewhere something and trigger it. I have carried these 50+ times on various camping trips over the years and never had an incident. But then again you wonder how some clown in the news somehow manages to accidentally shoot and kill someone too. Maybe we should complain about the gun and not the person who's job it is to securely store the gun?
The clip and holster allows me to quickly pull out the bear spray and remove the safety with ONE thumb/hand and aim in less than a second. You must practice this over and over until you get it right. If you're taking longer than that, you should reconsider your skills as a marksman of any kind because you are clearly doing something wrong. :p
Go and watch the YouTube clip on the hiker who used a can of bear spray on a mountain lion that's about to attack him, and the one where a grizzly bear trainer (or wannabee) was killed by the grizzly and no amount of smacking it with sticks stopped the attack until the other trainers used a can of bear spray.
The glow in the dark is kind of cool but they should have used material that glows for longer durations.
BTW, this is cheaper than that counter assault stuff and contrary to what ANY manufacturer claims, nothing shoots 30 feet. They all do about 15-20 feet in best conditions. However, with that said, the spray is powerful and if you're like my sister-in-law, when you spray it and you're not prepared, it'll jerk your arm back.
Note that Yellowstone rents bear spray. I'm not sure for how much because I just buy my own for my camping needs.
