Preventing or minimizing burial depth is the key to reducing avalanche fatalities. That’s because the majority of time in an avalanche rescue is spent on excavating the victim. An airbag is designed to keep you at or near the surface, minimizing excavation time.
Our Float avalanche airbags are the first airbags that are both affordable and easily reusable. A wide network of BCA-authorized refill centers provide unmatched service to Float purchasers. A small 2,700-psi (186 bar) compressed-air cylinder, single-chamber 150-liter airbag, and super efficient venturi system make the Float systems easy to refill, light and affordable.

While winter is a ways off still I Started looking through my gear to see what I need to replace. After two years of use my Float 22 bag is still in great shape and functioning perfectly. With roughly 5,500 miles on the sled over two years and countless backcountry trips I'm amazed how well its held together. Awesome quality and great fit. Nice job BCA! I would highly recommend this pack to anyone looking for one as they are priced well and hold up.
