The Backcountry Access Float 18™ pack incorporates cutting-edge technology in a sidecountry-sized ski pack. If you are caught in an avalanche, depress the E-Z pull trigger and a 150-liter airbag instantly deploys to keep you on riding high on top of the slide. Backcountry Access has made their Float system easy to repack and refill with a network of over 100 authorized centers across the United States and Canada. The slim and trim pack is designed to carry the essentials—shovel, probe, helmet, and goggles—along with snacks, water, and an extra layer. For sidecountry riders who want the ultimate piece of avalanche insurance, the Backcountry Access Float 18™ is the ticket. Disclaimer: The Float 18 does not guarantee survival in an avalanche.
