Backcountry Access Float 32 Avalanche Airbag Backpack. Designed for guides and pros, this Backcountry Access Float 32 Avalanche Airbag Backpack offers the exceptional protection of an integrated airbag system while delivering abundant features and space. The Backcountry Access Float 32 is designed for pros, guides, and dedicated backcountry skiing and snowboarding junkies carrying the full quiver of essentials. 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. The Float 32 will carry all your common winter backcountry tools while supplying ample space for a first-aid kit, glacier travel equipment, and even supplies for extended multi-day trips. The trigger can be set in either the left or right shoulder strap. Backcountry Access' backpack straps on this pack are hydration compatible and the airbag system is removable, making it the most versatile airbag backpack on the market.

No matter how carefully you plan and study, backcountry skiing and snowboarding will always carry the risk of getting caught in an avalanche. The Backcountry Access Float 32 Airbag features the Float 2. 0 system plus enough space to stash everything you need for all-day tours and highly technical approaches. The Float 2. 0 airbag system is light, affordable, and easy to use. 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. 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. In addition to having enough space for avalanche safety essentials, it also fits your climbing skins, extra layers, snacks, a hydration reservoir, and more. Dedicated probe and shovel sleeves make your avalanche rescue tools easily accessible so you don't waste a second if you have to dig out a partner. Compression straps help you minimize bulk for better stability while you ski, and the adjustable waist belt keeps the pack from swinging around and throwing you off balance.
BCA's Float 32 150-liter airbag not only creates buoyancy and decreases your burial depth but also protects your head and neck from trauma in an avalanche. BCA's next generation Float 2.0 cylinder is nearly 30% smaller and 15% lighter than their Float 1.0 engine. All the Float 2.0 system elements sit entirely separate behind a zippered covering, freeing up valuable space in the main compartment for gear, first-aid kit, and supplies.
