Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Avalanche airbag technology for ski mountaineering and riding in complex terrain. The reusable 150L airbag uses a powerful compressed-air cylinder (not included) to rapidly inflate the bag in an emergency. At 42L with the airbag installed, the Float 42 has plenty of room for gear for long touring days or for overnight trips. A dedicated avi tool pocket has extra room for skins and can be quickly accessed. Details for comfort include a lightly padded hipbelt, an ergonomically moulded back panel and padded shoulder straps.

  • Airbag system includes single-chamber 150L airbag, a compact 2700psi air cylinder (not included) and a Venturi system
  • Ultra-durable metal hipbelt buckle won't shatter under impact
  • Removable and stowable leg loops keep pack secure in the case of an avalanche
  • Moulded back panel, padded hipbelt and padded shoulder straps provide comfort on long days
  • Load-lifter straps let you balance the weight
  • Unlike more basic Float packs, you can adjust the airbag trigger location. It can be routed to either shoulder strap and height adjusted
  • Stowable diagonal ski-carry and helmet-sling system
  • 2 front daisy chains and 2 ice-axe loops with clips help you haul ski mountaineering essentials
  • Fleece-lined pocket protects your goggles
  • Hydration sleeve holds your reservoir (not included)
  • Empty Float 2.0 cartridges can be filled at BCA-authorized depots
