I recently rented a bear canister for a 7-day backpack on the John Muir Trail. Everything about working with S2S was easy and nice. They sent a personal confirmation of my rental request, had the canister waiting behind the counter the day I arrived, and took it back without batting an eye at some of the pine needles swishing around the bottom of the can when I returned it. They followed up with an email to confirm my return. The store is also a mix of great gear and fun shirts/hats commemorating the area. (Posted on 9/29/2017)

I did a solo overnight hike of Mt. Whitney. There was no way, the bear canisters you rent from the Whitney permit office would ever fit in my 46 liter pack. So, I reserved a Scout ahead of time, which is far lighter and smaller. There was plenty of room for several days worth of food. Karen shipped it to me right away when I booked a week before my trip. Thank you! (Posted on 7/11/2017)

Rented the Bearikade Weekender for a section hike of the JMT. Loved the canister, and the rental process was super easy! Ordered it only a week before I left for my trip and received it with days to spare. Would definitely rent again!! (Posted on 9/26/2016)

Learned that Sage to Summit rented the fabulous Bearikade cans in town. Easy to order online. Easy to arrange for pickup as we drove through Bishop. Easy to use and light to carry. Easy to drop off when we were done. Would certainly make this choice again... (Posted on 9/9/2016)

A perfect canister for our trip! I usually take our plastic see-through Bear Vault canister, but here's what I love about this one: easy to open with a coin, wide lid, fits tortillas perfectly, and lightweight. We fit three days of food and snacks for two people in here. Thank you Sage to Summit! (Posted on 7/25/2016)

My fiancé and I were going on a few day backpacking trip. Because of the last minute plans we were unable to buy a bear canister. However, we remembered that the sierras offered rentals. I decided to look online and found Sage to Summit which had the option to reserve a bear canister online and pick up at the store. I loved the reassurance I had that I wasn't going to drive 5 hours for a vacation and somehow not end up with a bear canister. So thank you Sage to Summit! For making a simple and easy was to reserve online and pick up a canister really easy at the store. The store is very simple and well organized with a good amount of product. So if you're in need of any other mountaineering products before you take off, take a look around. Also had good sales on clothes! I ended buying a pair of pants that I really love for hiking/backpacking! (Posted on 6/12/2016)
