    Comments about BCA Float 32 Airbag Pack:

    I use this pack on the reg. for both short sidecountry missions and longer days in the backcountry. The organization of the pack is great. You have a separate pocket for avy gear and plenty of room in the second larger pocket for extra layers, water, and snacks. There's a lined goggle pocket and a smaller inside pocket for keys / and or first aid kit supplies. Finally the outside helmet provides a snug mesh pocket for your helmet without sacrificing space in the back or it loosely dangling from a side.

    In addition to the near perfect organization, the sizing of the pack is also a plus. There is a height adjustable waist belt and the shoulder straps cinch to fit a range of sizes.

    The ski carry is a simple diagonal design, and when not in use the straps pack into their own little pockets that prevent potential to snag on trees and provide a sleek, clean look.

    I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a larger, yet fairly light weight pack as an additional tool to add to your avalanche safety kit.

        The Float 32 is one of the best options on the market for a well built, simple, reliable airbag. The design is practical and allows for efficient use of space, with a separate avy gear pocket and an awesome ski carry system. It's also one of the most comfortable carrying airbags out there - with a multitude of other useful features. Highly recommended.

            This is the perfect size back for a full day in the Backcountry / Sidecountry. IT fits a couple of layers, water, snacks, has a lined pocket for goggles, a helmet carry, and a simple ski carry. The backpack itself is light weight for an airbag pack. The waist strap is comfortable and you can adjust the straps to fit your frame. I highly recommend this size pack out of all the available ones.
