BCA Float 30 Avalanche Airbag [2011]

BCA Float 30 Avalanche Airbag


Additional Views: (colors may be different than pictured)

Excavation time is by far the biggest contributing factor in avalanche fatalities. By reducing or eliminating burial depth you substantially increase your chances of survival. The Float 30 is the first airbag that is both affordable and easily reusable. We use a smaller cylinder, single–chamber 150–liter airbag, and super–efficient Venturi system to reduce cost and weight. The airbag itself not only helps prevent burial, but protects the head, neck and upper body from trauma. With its location behind the head and away from the hips and arms, it preserves the user’s peripheral vision and his or her ability to escape the avalanche before it picks up speed.


The airbag is neatly stuffed into a 30-liter panel-loading BCA backpack with shovel and probe pockets, diagonal ski carrying system, compression straps, lined goggle pocket, waist belt pockets, and several interior pockets for easy gear access. For a close look at how it all works, see the videos below.
