Purpose built avalanche backpacks have long been a trusted component of backcountry safety gear but if you already have a preferred non-inflatable backcountry backpack or just want to do some resort riding with a low profile avalanche airbag, there’s never been much for options until now. Introducing AREOSIZE VEST ONE, the avy airbag system that fits kind of like those lay-flat inflatable life jackets anglers and sailors wear.

Honestly the website is kind of a headache to navigate and their demonstration videos leave a lot to desire, but they seem to be tested and accredited by a European product certification service and present a new option for winter enthusiasts to add a layer of protection against avalanche burials.  Retails $901 USD. Mashable did a decent demo video for them so check that out below. MORE INFO HERE.
