Backcountry Access Float 30

Backcountry Access says:

Excavation time is by far the biggest contributing factor in avalanche fatalities. By reducing or eliminating burial depth you substantially increase your chances of survival. The Float 30 is the first airbag that is both affordable and easily reusable.

We use a smaller cylinder, single–chamber 150–liter airbag, and super–efficient venturi system to reduce cost and weight. The airbag itself not only helps prevent burial, but protects the head, neck and upper body from trauma. With its location behind the head and away from the hips and arms, it preserves the user’s peripheral vision and his or her ability to escape the avalanche before it picks up speed.

The airbag is neatly stuffed into a 30-liter panel-loading BCA backpack with shovel and probe pockets, compression straps and easy gear access. Hydration: none included but is compatible.
