Not a bear in sight! The Curtis E. Bear Spray Holder must be working like a charm.
Specious reasoning or not, this is what you need to carry bear spray on your trail ride, bikepacking trip or commute to work through bear-infested territory. Working in bike shops over the years I noticed people using the worst possible methods of attaching bear spray to a bike. In the bottle cage, falling out of the bottle cage, loosely tied to the handlebars with an uncomfortably high chance of going off unexpectedly, sometimes in a pack, or more often, left at home.
The Curtis E. Bear Spray Holder (say that three times fast) securely attaches to your handlebar and fork crown, similar to the Watering Hole. It holds bear spray sturdily in place over all types of terrain, and a Velcro closure keeps it hidden away in its not-going-off-unexpectedly state, until you are being bluff charged by a grizzly, when you'll be able to pull it out quicker than Jack Bauer opens his flip phone.
Bikepacker or not, if you ride in bear country, don't leave your bear spray at home.
The Curtis E. Bear Spray holder is made of strong and durable materials, like all Thief products:
- 1000D Cordura (Olive Green, Smoke Grey, Black)
- 420D PVC-backed Nylon (Teal, Purple, Red, Yellow, Lime Green, Pink)
- Nylon webbing
- Hook and loop
