Video: How Our Favorite Gear Gets Bear Tested

If you’ve ever wondered how a piece of gear gets rated for its ability to resist a bear, this video is for you. It takes us to a testing facility located in Montana where products like bear canisters, coolers, and other items are handed over to grizzly bears to play with. How well those items survive this rigorous testing method indicates just how bear-proof they actually are. The short clip is very interesting, and of course it has the added benefit of having lots of bears in it too.
