The Black Diamond Bandit Avalung Pack is skier Seth Morrison's pro model winter backpack. Designed to be lightweight and minimalist, the Bandit is ideal for outside-the-gate resort skiing, cat boarding, or fast-and-light touring missions. Last Season the Bandit was just a comfortable pack, this season it's Avalung equipped in order to help you breathe underneath the snow should you suddenly become trapped beneath an avalanche debris field.
  • Built-in Avalung system significantly extends your fresh air supply in case you're caught in an avalanche and buried beneath the snow
  • Fresh air is pulled from the valve box by your shoulder, through the Avalung mouthpiece, and when you exhale, CO2 is expelled from the exhaust port by your waist
  • Avalung mouthpiece and tubing stow away in the shoulder strap when not in use, but are easy to reach so you can extend the mouthpiece just before you drop in
  • Diagonal ski carry cable extends when you need it and stays retracted when not in use
  • Minimalist suspension design uses lightweight straps and webbing waistbelt that carry light loads comfortably and allow for ample adjustability
  • Hydration sleeve allows you to use a hydration bladder to stay hydrated and the insulated design keeps your water from freezing solid
  • Enclosed shovel and probe organizer pocket makes it easy to find your entire avie-tool kit quickly, and the enclosed design protects your essentials

Can I just buy the breathing tube? I have the pack but the tube didn't come with it.

To clarify what Carver said. I beleive you have the regular Bandit Pack (http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-bandit-winter-pack-690cu-in?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6YmFuZGl0OjE6MzpiYW5kaXQ) and unfortunately you cannot retrofit the pack with an avalung. The guts of the pack are different. What Carver linked you to is a stand alone Avalung unit that you wear underneath the pack. It CANNOT be added into a pack, and attempting to do so may cause serious injury or death if you get buried. Use the standalone unit only as directed.

Small, but perfect for my use/need

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's a nice little backpack and is the perfect size for my use. I never ski without it.
It store just what I need as in shovel, probe, extra gloves and so on. Even with what I got in it I can easily sit and relax on the ski lift.

A little small

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This bag is great in trying to get up the trail as quickly as possible, but in terms of overall carrying space it is a struggle. Need at least 10 more L to feel comfortable in fitting everything that is needed for the BC.
