Not Leprechaun Proof
I have used these bear canisters in Alaska backpacking and while I had no encounters with bears trying to get it, I was very able to access my food. Given this ease of entry and a last name of Finnegan, I can only assume that a leprechaun would have no issue getting into this, despite what the description claims. I found the easiest way to turn the locks on these is with the lanyard loop on my Leatherman, which is quick, easy, and accessible.
