FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why is the Bare BoxerTM preferred by most backpackers planning weekend and 3 day hikes?
The Bare BoxerTM Contender model is the lightest and most compact bear-proof food container in the woods! It's also the least expensive.

For longer trips you’ll want the Bare BoxerTM Champ model. It will hold about a 1 week supply of food for 1 person. The “Champ” is the lowest priced container in it’s class!

Why do I need a "bear-proof" food container when I go backpacking?
The law requires you to carry and store your food in an approved container when you enter designated back country areas of National parks and forests where bears may be present. The Bare BoxerTM has been tested, approved and certified by the Sierra Interagency Black Bear Group (SIBBG) and the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC) for use in both black bear and grizzly bear habitat.

What makes the Bare BoxerTM different?
The Bare BoxerTM incorporates a patent pending, positive locking mechanism made of food grade 316 stainless steel, that has been shown to be "the strongest mechanism available on any approved bear-proof food container designed for use by backpackers." Simply put, it's the strongest, least expensive and lightest one out there!

Do I need a separate case for carrying the Bare BoxerTM?
No, the Bare BoxerTM Contender has a smooth, compact design that fits nicely inside your back pack and will still easily carry enough for a three day supply of food for one person!

Where are the Bare BoxerTM Contender and Champ available for purchase?
You can check with your local sporting goods dealer or you can purchase them online right here.

Happy Backpacking!!
