Bear Sprays — are they good?

20060430-BR-9Hello,
I am starting to hike in the White Mountains- sometimes alone and sometimes with my children. Bears are somewhat of a concern, as are dogs and even people. Would the bear repellent work for people as well as dogs and bears? Would like one item to do it all!! Please advise!
Thanks,
-A.G.


Dear A.G.,

Bear Sprays (Bear Repellents) have the same active ingredient as any pepper spray: the concentrated pepper extract. It works on animals by the same principle as it works on humans.

We recommend these two Bear Sprays :
