WHAT DO OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY?
Our Bearikades are with us on every wilderness adventure, giving us peace of mind, no more time-consuming hassle of rigging up a tree-hang system for 10+ days of food. For happy hour, they serve as side tables when we’re relaxing in camp.
I absolutely love my Bearikade. It’s so lightweight that you’ll have enough breath to sing while hiking!
3 days in, at Kaweah Pass, Sally strained her knee and could barely walk. A ranger evaluated her. First thing he did was remove her “brandX” heavy bear bin, so she could continue. Fortunately all our food fit in my lightweight Bearikade. Wild Ideas saved our trip!
