The Bear Vault BV 450, is the answer to where to store your food when there are crows, ravens, raccoons, fox, mice, and yes bears. The BV450 is the smallest rigid bear resistant food container made (any smaller and bears could get their jaws around it a break it open), and it fits in most sea kayaks with 10" round bow hatches (i.e. WS Tempests etc. with Kayak Sport hatches) or oval rear hatches (both VCP and Kayak Sport oval hatches). Besides protecting your food from critters, it protects your kayak from spills of sticky, smelly food that could attract animals in the future, and it helps keep your food free of sand while at camp. We started using the Bear Vault because of trips in bear country, but then found it is such a convenient way to deal with packing food that now we use them on all our camping trips.

The box also doubles as a seat at camp, and that is handy when you are cooking on the ground. Although not waterproof (unless you wrap tape around it or put it in a dry bag), when stored right side up the BV will protect your food from rain.
