There’s almost nothing more important than being prepared to protect yourself from bears when out in the wilderness. Bear spray is a vital part of any attack deterrent plan when you’re in bear country.
Here are some of the reasons Frontiersman Bear Spray provides the very best in bear defense.
Greater protection: Industry maximum 35-foot (10.6 m) range allows for greatest distance between you and a bear
Proven: Field tested and proven effective by the Elmendorf Air Force Base (Elmendorf, AK) and Brown Bear Resources (Missoula, MT)
Biggest barrier: High emission system releases the maximum product (1.84 oz per second) to provide optimal protection
Immediately accessible: Hip & chest holster do not have cumbersome straps to restrict immediate access to your canister or scare the bear
When deciding where to buy bear spray, ask yourself:
Which bear spray has the greatest range? Certainly you want as much space between yourself and a charging bear as possible. The 9.2 oz Frontiersman canister provides an industry-topping 35-foot (10.6 m) range—outperforming the competition by up to 20 feet (6 m)!
Which spray is the strongest? The maximum bear spray strength allowed by the EPA is 2.0% capsaicinoids. Since you deserve the very strongest, Frontiersman® Bear Spray offers 2.0% capsaicinoids.
How can Frontiersman guarantee maximum heat (2.0% major capsaicinoids)? The University of Utah reported that pepper sprays fail 30% of the time, and that’s a risk you don’t want to take. Frontiersman pepper sprays undergo rigorous in-house HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) testing, eliminating this 30% failure rate and providing the confidence you need when your safety is at stake.
Bear spray effectiveness: Where’s the proof? The true test is the test of nature! Look for a bear spray that has been field tested and proven effective against charging bears. Frontiersman, for instance, was tested on charging bears by the Elmendorf Air Force Base (Elmendorf, AK), and Brown Bear Resources (Missoula, MT). Frontiersman was repeatedly proven effective at deterring bears in both trials.
Which bear spray deploys the most product per second? Bears are top of the food chain in North America and can decapitate a human with one swipe of their paw. So, when confronted by an aggressive bear, you don't want your bear spray in the can—you want it in between you and the animal. Your best option is a bear spray that provides the largest barrier and reaches the bear faster, thanks to its dual-propellant delivery system. The 9.2 oz Frontiersman Bear Spray (larger size) canister offers 1.84 oz of spray per second, up to 40% more than other brands!
How important is immediate access? Very. Given that an 800-pound bear charges at a rate of 50 feet (15 m) per second, your reaction time is limited. Frontiersman bear spray is available in belt holster and chest holster options, with no cumbersome straps or velcro closures that can disturb the bear as you try to access your spray.
Choose Frontiersman... because only the best bear spray will do! Plus, our comfortable holsters will make sure you aren’t distracted from all of the beauty that Mother Nature has to offer.

A Customer's Frontiersman Success Story
"I am sure the 'hiss' of the spray escaping the canister startled her to a point, however, the spray was upon her in an instant. She reacted immediately [...]. She ran away basically the same direction she had approached, at approximately 45 degrees away shaking her head."
