That's a significant reduction in weight! Congrats. I'm going 4/2
and have gone before. Never seen anything about a bear can being a necessity, as there's no bears down in the canyon. They're rare on the rims. Ursacks,Loksacks or other rodent proof sacks may serve you better. If you're on the corridor trails, campsites will have ammo cans. I'm using cookie tins with a homemade locking lid, and they are fine against ravens, squirrels, mice and ringtails. Do some research and you might lose a little more weight out of the pack.
