Bear Spray Time or Volume; What Would You Prefer?

A marketing ploy often used in the bear spray/pepper spray world is that a minimum of 6 seconds of continuous spray is required in order for the spray to be effective. How can anyone make that assertion, when many factors dictate whether or not pepper spray will be effective?

Wind direction and velocity, distance of spray vs. distance of bear at the time of spray, volume of spray per second, concentration of pepper in the spray, and area covered by the spray are all important factors as to whether or not a particular brand of bear pepper spray will be effective.

Unlike other brands that spray a slower forming narrow fog of bear pepper spray, UDAP Pepper Power® Bear Spray deploys a high volume powerful blast of highly concentrated pepper spray in a dense fog – covering a broader area in a much shorter period of time.

If an angry grizzly charged at you, which type of pepper spray would you want?  One that emits a thick high volume fog of pepper spray in a powerful blast, or one that advertises it has over 6 seconds of spray time?

Now, play the video of an actual bear charge. Then ask yourself the following: How many seconds did the attack take?  How many seconds would I need to defend myself against such an attack?

Now answer this question: “How much bear pepper spray would you want to put between you and an attacking grizzly; how quickly would you want to put it there?”

Get the facts…don’t believe the hype and misleading charts! We have never seen any data to backup this marketing ploy.
