WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
BearVault uses polycarbonate because of its extraordinary strength-to-weight advantages. This translates into a lighter weight, stronger bear canister for adventurers like you, who are hauling the weight over long distances because you care – not just about your next meal, but also about protecting bears and keeping them wild.
BearVault's polycarbonate housing contains BPA (bisphenol-A), one of the 950 chemicals subject to Prop 65. The concentration of BPA in this product is minuscule, but still present: less than 100 ppm (parts per million) – in other words, it makes up less than 0.0001 of the canister housing, according to our supplier. A Prop 65 warning informs consumers of likely exposure; note, however, that it is not a regulatory decision that a product is “safe” or “unsafe”.
