Bear Deterrent with Holster


Carry What The Professionals Carry!

Counter Assault is the developer of the high emission "atomized" fire extinguisher style spray used in all bear deterrents. Counter Assault Bear Deterrent was developed in conjunction with the University of Montana, has the maximum active ingredient strength allowed by both the US EPA and Health Canada, and exceeds Bear Biologist and Wildlife Specialist recommendations for bear spray.  Counter Assault is both an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Health Canada establishment and was awarded the Grizzly Bear Stewardship Award for research and development of bear deterrent pepper spray.

For over 20 years Counter Assault has been a leading worldwide manufacturer of bear deterrent, military, law enforcement, and self defense pepper sprays and accessories.  High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) testing by independent laboratories and our stringent internal quality control insures high quality pepper spray products with consistent heat levels.

Bear Spray Specs and Instructions

Active Ingredient - 2% Capsaicin and other related Capsaicinoids (3.2 million SHU)
The main ingredient in COUNTER ASSAULT BEAR DETERRENT is an extract of RED PEPPER oil which affects the upper respiratory system, triggering involuntary eye closure and intense burning. 

Delivery Method - Atomized fogger blast
A sophisticated delivery method is utilized to create an atomized blast which produces a pepper cloud slow to dissipate. More effective than foam, stream or cone sprays. Distributes a large amount of high pressure spray into the target area, requiring less accuracy than other methods.

Shelf life - 4 years
We recommend you replace your product after 4 years. Nothing in the canister goes bad, but like all pressurized aerosols, it can lose pressure over time and you may not get the maximum performance from the canister. Each canister is marked with an expiration date on the label. (see picture below) Industry standard shelf life is one to two years.

Spray range & width
The diagram below helps illustrate how Counter Assault can be used at a standoff range of 18 to 35 feet with an 8.1 ounce canister.
