I was thinking I should add a bear canister to my gear. Quick look at prices got me thinking.How would pvc pipe work as a bear canister? Pvc pipe with a cap and screw on lid. Maybe a smaller one to carry in pack. And a larger one to leave at camp. Pvc drain pipes come in large enough sizes.
Is pvc strong enough? Does a bear canister have to be odor proof? Will be adding loops for ease of hanging away from camp regardless. Any other possible ideas for a diy canister?
