Well, that didn’t go as planned!
A video posted to Ergon rider Jeff Kerkove’s blog this morning shows a black
brown bear helping itself to the Powerbars and Kind Bars in one of the company’s new BA3 SuperEnduro packs. Filming from a respecful distance, neither Jeff nor photographer Karen Jarchow were harmed and the bear looks to have found what he or she wanted. No word on how the pack held up, but we should have one on review shortly- let’s hope it proves less attractive to wildlife than this one was. Hit the jump for photos and specs…
