Developed in conjunction with the University of Montana, this innovative aerosol spray formula will stop aggressive behavior in bears in their tracks. It contains 2% capsaicin and related capsaicinoids, a red pepper derivative, which is non-toxic and non-lethal, but is a deterrent strong enough to stop a bear attack. Designed for one-hand use, it will spray to up 32 ft. using a high-volume, atomized blast of concentrated spray. Recipient of the IGBC Stewardship Award for Research and Development of Bear Pepper Spray, this spray is produced by the survivor of a grizzly bear encounter. Won't freeze. Take no risks while camping, backpacking, hiking, and more in the Carolina Outdoors.
