You can't predict the future, but you can be prepared when you head into the backcountry with a little help from the Backcountry Access Float Cylinder. Even though your airbag-equipped BCA backpack may already have a charged cylinder ready to go, it's always a good to have a backup ... you know, just in case you accidentally set it off while demonstrating your benign intentions to an adamant border agent.
This Backcountry Float compressed air cylinder works with Float Avalanche Airbag packs to rapidly inflate the airbag and help keep you at or near the snow's surface during an avalanche.
Only compatible with Float Airbag Systems, the Float Cylinder fills the airbag when deployed. BCA encourages practicing the deployment of your airbag at least once per year. Once you have discharged your compressed air cylinder, it can be re-filled at any certified re-filler including dive shops.
BCA Float Air Canister FL-10000 The BCA Float is a cool system for a handful of reasons. It's 100% mechanical, and you don't need anything fancy to replace the canister after you use it. Just a handful of o-rings. The canister also has a cool gauge on it that let's you know it's good-to-go. BCA canisters ship full and ready-to-go from our front door to yours. Because it arrives full, there's a $30 hazmat fee added to the total for shipping. And to make things even more convenient (ahem), ground is the only shipping option for this item. If you absolutely have to have an empty BCA canister in your hands as fast as possible, give us a call here at the shop. We'll work something out for you. Call toll free: (877) 236-8428
The Refillable Float compressed air cylinder by Backcountry Access is the power and driving force behind their Float system. When the Float trigger is pulled, it activates the release of 2,700 psi of compressed air, inflating the airbag. Always make sure your cylinder is full and connected correctly before heading out.
