Airbag

Fully Integrated ABS Airbag SystemThe ABS airbag system uses compressed nitrogen gas to deploy large, inflatable airbags in the event of an avalanche via a pull cord on the shoulder strap. A solid body of evidence including lots of real world experience has demonstrated that the larger surface area provided by airbags keep you higher up in the debris, increasing your chances of survival.

Avalanche tools pocket with organization sleeves and backcountry essentials checklist

WarningWearing an airbag backpack is no guarantee of survival in an avalanche. Backcountry travelers are highly advised to educate themselves in snow stability assessment, route finding, and companion rescue and carry all of the conventional avalanche gear in addition to the airbag.

      Comments about The North Face Patrol 24 ABS Airbag Pack (w/ Activation Unit):

      Haven't had to deploy it yet...but it's peace of mind.
      The pack is comfortable and stable on your back, barely noticeable when ripping deep telemark turns. I like the compartmentalization and the capacity of the spaces are appropriate for this day pack.
      Yes, it's on the pricey end of the airbag spectrum, but the pack seems worth the extra cash.

          Haven't had it save my life or anything... but one thing I can say is that knowing you have this pack on your back gives you a great sense of confidence in the backcountry. Defiantly worth the price if you're a backcountry enthusiast!
