Take your backcountry precautions to the next level.
While the allure of untracked snow is powerful, an encounter with a backcountry avalanche could be devastating. Improve your odds of surviving a slide with the ABS Avalanche Rescue Devices Vario 30 Backpack. The 30-liter pack has ample room for your backcountry gear and zips onto a base unit that houses the canister and dual airbags, which can be quickly deployed in the event of a slide.
