Stripped of all unnecessary features, the streamlined Black Diamond Alias Avalung Backpack provides serious backcountry skiers with everything they need and nothing they don't in a reliable and lightweight pack system. When you have the breathing tube in your mouth, the tested and proven AvaLung system pulls fresh air from the snow pack and directs exhaled CO2 away from your body, providing nearly an hour of oxygen supply if you get buried in an avalanche. The reActiv suspension system moves with your upper body for improved agility and balance, enhancing your performance while you navigate technical terrain on the way up and rip elegant turns on the way back down.


A streamlined, lightweight top-loading ski pack for gram counters, the Black Diamond Alias has a "pro-level" avy-tools sleeve designed to organize your probe, shovel and snow saw, as well as a zippered top pocket with slots for keeping all of your accoutrements dialed in. The dual compression straps keep your load tight and double as the sleeves for carrying your skis A-frame style. The removable aluminum stay can be taken out to reduce weight, while the foam back panel ensures a comfy carry. The Alias is built with an interior hydration bladder slot and insulated, exterior hydration sleeve. BD's ergoACTIV suspension technology lets the Alias AvaLung move with you, thanks to its innovative hipbelt and shoulder straps. In the event of an avalanche burial, the built-in AvaLung increases your chance of survival by pulling fresh air from the surrounding snowpack. An enclosed avy-tool organizer pocket, ice tool PickPocket and tuck-away rope strap keep all your alpine essentials sorted and handy.
