Backcountry Access - The Most Trusted Name in Backcountry Safety. Education is just as important as the gear. Check out our Avalanche Safety Guide to accustom yourself to backcountry danger


Backcountry Access (BCA)’s mission is to save lives, not just to sell products. BCA has always considered education to be just as important as the gear it makes, which is why BCA has such a strong emphasis on researching and understanding the backcountry. 

The Float Airbag is the BCA Brand avalanche airbag, which has a single pillow-shaped balloon that deploys behind your head. The BCA avalanche airbag is inflated using a compressed air canister that is easy to refill at multiple BCA shops and/or scuba shops, paintball shops and other places that you think might be able to refill your canister. BCA was also the first company to create the digital beacon - which has proved to be more reliable and easy to use than the traditional analog beacons. BCA shovels and probes also feature some innovative technology like hoe mode, saws, and quick-lock extensions to cut down on the rescue time so that you can get your buddies out sooner.
