Bears are BALLSY these days! And with good reason, we’ve taken quite a bit of natural habit away. Bear-on-human interactions have gotten so common that the National Park System has strict rules, fines and signs on what to do and not do while hiking and camping.

Failure to store your food properly in a national park can result in impoundment of your food or car and/or a fine of up to $5,000 and/or revocation of your camping permit.

The rules aren’t just to protect YOU. Bears that routinely get human food can become aggressive and interactions that turn can result in killing the bear.

By storing your snacks and treats properly, you can prevent an unnecessary death in the animal kingdom.

We got to test out the superpower of Smelly Proof bags and we’ve added them to our Period Kit, essentials for all day hikes, plus all of our future summer hiking! These reusable (cause we’re all about multi-use plastics if we’re going to use plastic) are made with FDA-approved medical grade materials that keep odors indoors. They’re also super durable - puncture resistant and moisture repellant.

Perfectly packed snacks for my day hike on the  Bear Gulch Cave Trail  in Pinnacles National Park.

Smelly Proof bags come in a wide variety of sizes, so there’s a size for everything and come in boxes of 10, 25, even up to 100 for all things camping and hiking.

Again, I know you may be thinking --- oh the plastics!! But it’s really important to properly store your food while adventuring in the great outdoors. These products are liquid, moisture and puncture resistant and are far and away tougher than what you will find at your local grocery store. They are made to last and can even be washed and used again #ReduceReusueRecycle and were created in the US, so your global footprint can rest easy.
