Wild Ideas Bearikade Canister's are made of a lightweight carbon fiber composite. Humans can open them easily with a coin or screwdriver blade, however, animals cannot! The Expedition is the largest of these canisters and works well for extended backcountry trips. Have this canister shipped your way for your trip with this option. If interested in reserving a canister for in-store pick-up, see Expedition Bearikade Canister Rental: IN-STORE Pick-Up.
I originally needed the Bearikade Expedition for an eight day backpacking trip. Our plans changed at the last minute and I no longer needed the Expedition. It was too late to cancel my order. So, I sent the can back, unused. SagetoSummit charged $14 to ship it to me. I was shocked when my local UPS store said it will cost $47 to ship it back to Sage! I wish SagetoSummit would charge an additional $14 to ship back and include the shipping label. If I would have known shipping back would cost that much, I would never have rented it. The bearikade arrived in plenty of time for my trip and was in good condition. Giving 1 star for the unexpected cost to ship it back. Would not recommend renting since it costs more to send back than it cost to rent.
Works as advertised and held significant food amounts
Great service all around
