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.


Skiing in the backcountry comes with the inherent risk of exposure to avalanche terrain. Should you find yourself caught in a slide, the BCA Float 32 Airbag Backpack is a tool that offers a drastically increased chance of survival.
