The original avalanche airbag was a simple backpack with an airbag balloon and the necessary technology in it. Since the 1980’s, avalanche pack companies have spent countless hours in search of new technology, innovations, and more to make their airbag the best. Perhaps one of their most fruitful findings was a backcountry vest. The airbag technology is the same however, by using a avalanche safety vest style pack; the rider can experience a higher level of comfort. An avalanche airbag vest allows for more even weight distribution which reduced the strain and stress a normal backpack can have on your shoulders and back. BCA, SnowPulse, Wary, and more offer a variety of avalanche airbag vests for the riders comfort. Check them out below and find out more by clicking on the product.
