Backcountry Access Float 22 Avalanche Airbag Backpack. For exceptional protection in an incredibly lightweight package, the Float 22 Avalanche Airbag Backpack from Backcountry Access fits the bill with plenty of space for lunch, gear, and extra layers. The Backcountry Access Float 22 is designed for out-of-bounds, off-piste, freeride and mechanized skiing and snowboarding. Creating buoyancy and helping you float to the surface, the 150-liter airbag not only decreases your burial depth but also protects your head and neck from trauma in an avalanche. Now the lightest and most affordable airbag backpack available, the Float 22 will easily carry your winter rescue tools, lunch, water, and extra layer for a full day in the backcountry. BCA's Float system is removable and interchangeable between packs. The BCA Float Cylinder is sold separately. BCA's 200 authorized refill locations around the world make it the easiest refillable airbag system on the market. The Float Airbag system does not guarantee survival in an avalanche incident. Educate yourself, make good decisions, and know before you go. The Float 22 features new external shovel/probe pocket, helmet and diagonal ski carry system, waist belt pocket, and optional snowboard attachment (sold as accessory). The system uses a 2,700 psi compressed air cylinder, single-chamber airbag and patented super-efficient venturi system. BCA has a rapidly expanding network of convenient Float refill and cylinder exchange centers.

The latest research shows that your chances of surviving an avalanche are twice as good if you're wearing an airbag than if you're not. The reason why everyone isn't wearing one, however, is because of weight, bulk, and expense. Backcountry Access solves those problems with the Float series. The Float 22 Airbag is BCA's medium-sized pack, designed for morning tours and extended through-the-gates adventures. The Float airbag system is light, affordable, and easy to use, and most importantly, it could save your life. It uses a compressed air cylinder to almost instantly inflate a 150-liter airbag that helps keep you at or near the surface of a slide in order to minimize evacuation time and blunt force trauma from debris and hidden obstacles. Backcountry Access also has the world's most extensive network of cylinder refill and exchange centers, making it easier for you to get a new compressed air cylinder after you have to deploy your airbag. The Float 22 features enough volume to stash your climbing skins, snacks, an extra layer, and, of course, all the avalanche safety essentials. In fact, it has dedicated shovel and probe sleeves so you can quickly access your avalanche rescue tools when the worst happens. A diagonal ski carry holds you planks when you have to boot pack, and BCA also offers a snowboard carry attachment (sold separately) for the snow surfers.
