Anyone have experience packing a bear canister in a ULA Conduit or Circuit?
I am prepping for a 6 day, five night trip in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Although I don't usually carry a bear canister (almost always hang using PCT method), I am considering using one this time. My only concern is space and cost (I have looked at Bear Vault and Bearikade Canisters--YIKE$$$).
If anyone has any experience, advice, or suggestions (on which type of canister to buy, or which type of pack works best for carrying a bear canister) I would love to hear them. I would prefer to stay with the Conduit if at all possible, but I am open to other pack suggestions (I also have access to a friend's ULA Circuit pack). I can cut my food to approximately 1lb. per day and rely on fish to supplement my diet (if needed), but this is definitely not ideal :-)
I look forward to hearing some QUALITY feedback.
