Backcountry Access Float 32 Avalanche Airbag Backpack. Designed for guides and pros, this Backcountry Access Float 32 Avalanche Airbag Backpack offers the exceptional protection of an integrated airbag system while delivering abundant features and space. The Backcountry Access Float 32 is designed for pros, guides, and dedicated backcountry skiing and snowboarding junkies carrying the full quiver of essentials. 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. The Float 32 will carry all your common winter backcountry tools while supplying ample space for a first-aid kit, glacier travel equipment, and even supplies for extended multi-day trips. The trigger can be set in either the left or right shoulder strap. Backcountry Access' backpack straps on this pack are hydration compatible and the airbag system is removable, making it the most versatile airbag backpack on the market. The BCA Float Cylinder is sold separately. BCA's 200 refill locations around the world make it the easiest refillable airbag system available. The Float Airbag system does not guarantee survival in an avalanche incident. Educate yourself, make good decisions, and know before you go. The Float airbags are the lightest and most affordable on the market. The pack features big volume, load lifters, new external shovel/probe pocket, waist belt pocket, lined goggle pocket, hydration sleeve, diagonal ski carry, ice axe carry, helmet carry and optional snowboard carry attachment (sold as accessory). The system uses a 2,700 psi compressed air cylinder, single-chamber airbag and patented super-efficient venturi system.

The BCA Float 32 uses 2,700 psi compressed air, single-chamber airbag and super-efficient venturi system to protect your head, neck, and upper body without sacrificing vision or freedom of movement.
No matter how carefully you plan and study, backcountry skiing and snowboarding will always carry the risk of getting caught in an avalanche. However, wearing an airbag can double your chances of survival should you get caught in a slide. The Backcountry Access Float 32 Airbag features the Float system plus enough space to stash everything you need for all-day tours and highly technical approaches. The Float airbag system is light, affordable, and easy to use, and most importantly, it could save your life. It uses a compressed air cylinder to almost instantly inflate a 150-liter airbag that helps keep you at or near the surface of a slide in order to minimize evacuation time and blunt force trauma from debris and hidden obstacles. Backcountry Access also has the world's most extensive network of cylinder refill and exchange centers, making it easier for you to get a new compressed air cylinder after you have to deploy your airbag. In addition to having enough space for avalanche safety essentials, it also fits your climbing skins, extra layers, snacks, a hydration reservoir, and more. Dedicated probe and shovel sleeves make your avalanche rescue tools easily accessible so you don't waste a second if you have to dig out a partner. Compression straps help you minimize bulk for better stability while you ski, and the adjustable waist belt keeps the pack from swinging around and throwing you off balance. The Float 32 even includes a dual ice axe carrying system for the most adventurous backcountry explorers.
