Traveling with the proper equipment is key to maximizing safety in the backcountry, and while avalanche beacons, probes, and shovels have traditionally been the staples, airbag packs are increasingly being thought of as one of the essentials. With the K2 Backside Float 8 Airbag Pack you get a low profile bag with enough room to carry the essentials yet small enough to comfortably ride the lifts and easily manage without throwing off your balance. Clam shell access makes it easy to reach items towards the bottom while internal shovelprobe sleeves maintain organization. Strap your skis or board onto your back and trek to that untouched face with the added confidence of K2 BCA's technology to float you to the top in the event of a slide. Small and compact, but with huge lifesaving potential, don't think twice about getting the K2 Backside Float 8 Airbag Pack. Cylinder sold separately.
