Backcountry Access Float 22 Avalanche Pack - Unisex



Show Description

Designed for day touring or terrain accessed through mechanized means, The Float 22 has a single chamber, 150L airbag system. It’s 25% lighter than previous versions and surprisingly affordable, so you can make an airbag pack a regular component of your setup. The pack provides enough volume for rescue tools, lunch, skins and an extra layer but that's about it.

  • Airbags are designed to reduce or eliminate burial depth and protect your head, neck and upper body from trauma should you be caught in an avalanche.
  • Single chamber airbag has a super-efficient venturi system designed to keep cost and waste down.
  • Airbag, cylinder, and compressed air equipment are now interchangeable among 2012/2013 Float Packs.
  • Refillable air cartridge not included.
  • Empty cartridges can be filled at BCA authorized depots.
  • External shovel/probe pocket, helmet and diagonal ski carrying system.
  • Waist belt pocket.
  • Optional snowboard carry attachment available separately.
