Gear: Frontiersman Bear Spray

Hiking season is finally here, which means you'll be getting out and going deep—oftentimes, into bear country. The best way to stave off a charging grizzly is pepper spray, and the Frontiersman Bear Attack Deterrent should be on your belt—or better yet, your chest—every time you head into the wilderness. Its potent formula offers maximum stopping power out to 35 feet, and the holster is both comfortable and secure, with no strap to impede rapid deployment. Accessories include a chest harness and inert can for practice, both of which we heartily recommend. $50;
