Always encouraging all you backcountry skiers and snowboarders to continue your education, make informed decisions and take advantage of every device that improves safety off piste. That includes avy backpacks so here’s a walk through video of BCA Float 15 and 25 Turbo to give you an idea of whats out there.
Go into the ski shops, ask questions, talk with friends, research online, get informed and pull the damn trigger on an inflatable. Only has to work once for it be worth it:
“Featuring the Float 2.0 inflation system, both the Float 15 and 25 Turbo are technical avalanche airbags designed for mountain sledding. Creating buoyancy and helping you float to the surface, the 150-liter airbag not only decreases your burial depth but also protects your head and neck from trauma in an avalanche. BCA’s 200 authorized refill locations around the world make it the easiest refillable airbag system on the market. The Float avalanche airbag system does not guarantee survival in an avalanche incident. Educate yourself, make good decisions, and know before you go. Float 2.0 air cylinder must be purchased separately.”
