The sleek and streamlined Black Diamond Bandit AvaLung pack is ideal for skiers and riders who skirt the boundaries at the ski area and venture out of bounds to seek powdery bliss. Bandit AvaLung is also well suited for heli/cat skiing adventures and quick tours from your alpine hut. Integrated AvaLung apparatus can increase the time you have to breathe if trapped in an avalanche; air is pulled in directly from the snowpack via a mouthpiece. Exhaled carbon dioxide is directed out the exhaust port at the bottom right of the pack, extending the time available before an ice layer builds up and seals out oxygen. Breathing tube runs through the left shoulder strap and can be positioned such that the mouthpiece is readily available. Shovel and probe organization pockets allow simple access to your essential equipment. Insulated sleeve helps prevent your hydration reservoir (sold separately) from freezing up; drinking tube routes through insulated right shoulder strap. .
