The conveniently placed pyrotechnic-pneumatic handle is easy to reach at the first sign of an avalanche, so you don't waste any precious seconds. Should one of your partners trigger a slide, the front panel offers quick access to your probe and shovel. When conditions are extremely stable, you can leave the ABS system in the car to save weight. With a weight capacity of up to 50 pounds, the Kamber 42 can easily haul all the gear, layers, and food you need for a weekend at a remote hut.
