I have two sizes of the Bear Vault and they are great. I like the volume, the clear walls to see where things are, and the flat top which allows the canister to double as a reasonably comfortable seat. It's tricky to open however. The best way to do it is to bring an expired credit card or something similar to insert between the lip of the lid and the tabs it needs to spin past to open. Not doing so means you have to struggle to push the side of the lid in and spin it at the same time. It's not easy and even harder at night, in the cold, when all you want is to take out the toothpaste you forgot to grab when you got your toothbrush. I still vote for the Bearikade because compared to the Bear Vault it's lighter, lid is simple to unscrew, and I haven't heard about any cases of bears having opened one.
