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.


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
