    Comments about BCA Float 22 Airbag Pack:

    I used the 22 during a backcountry shoot in Utah's Little Cottonwood Canyon - it was a borrowed pack, and the first time I had used an airbag (my current back is a BD Agent Avalung). First let me say that this pack is the perfect size for a longer day - in this instance, we were in the mountains from sun up to sun down, so managing layers was something on my mind when I packed up, but still had plenty of room for my backcountry gear. One thing that really struck me is it wasn't bulky, and as an athlete moving around the mountains, hiking, touring having a product that can be nimble and not feel like it is restrictive is super important to me, and that is the 22.

      Comments about BCA Float 22 Airbag Pack:

      I have been wearing this pack all season so far and loving it! It fits great and easy to adjust, comfortable with great room for just a day pack or over night pack. It holds everything I need with room to spare. I'm not easy on stuff and this pack is strong! I have ran it through branches and trees countless time and not a single tear. I haven't had any issues with zippers or straps. A great pack and I would recommend it to anyone!

        This is a great pack! Not only does it offer great storage capabilities while maintaining a sturdy and compact shape, but this pack is also one of the most durable I have ever seen; The fabric, zippers and straps are virtually bomb-proof! All together, the storage, durability and "Float Airbag" system make this pack my go to for any day on the slopes.

            Comments about BCA Float 22 Airbag Pack:

            I love my BCA Float 22. Of course having an airbag backpack in the backcountry is a great added to tool. The Float 22 is the perfect size for day tours, cat skiing and heli skiing. The pack is comfortable with good organization for you shovel and probe, with plenty of room for your skins, a layer, some water and lunch. The canister system with BCA is easy to refill with locations all over the world, making these packs easy to travel with. BCA's website is full of information and instructional videos to help you set up and manage you pack, which is great!

                I've used this pack while rappelling into couloirs in Chamonix, competing in 4 star Freeride World Qualifier events in Switzerland, Japan, and backcountry all over North America. I've been putting it through the wringer for the last three years and it is still as good as new. Its smaller size makes it far more versatile than larger float packs, definitely a great backpack.
