Light and lean, safe and smart.
The lowest-profile pack from Snowpulse, the Prorider 15 Backpack has room for the basics, e.g., an extra layer and food, plus the Lifebag system that is fast-becoming essential in avalanche-prone terrain. The Lifebag provides float and vital protection in the event of a slide and a bright, highly visible color for easier rescue; and the Prorider 15 is its fastest, leanest carrier.

where can I buy the canister?
where can I buy the canister?
You can buy the canister here un backcountry.com:
It will come empty, the most common option for filling it would be to take it to a local scuba shop although over the last year many outdoor retail shops have begun to offer refill services as well. In my experience the scuba shop is the easiest option.
Nice and compact but limited space
The reason I bought this airbag pack is because of the shape of the airbag. Basically it is like a giant life jacket that wraps from each side of your chest all around the back of your head. Definitely the best design as far as trauma protection. It is a small pack that can fit minimal gear so best used for sidecountry, heli, or short day tours. Because some of the airbag is stored in the straps it takes a little while for the straps to break in but overall it is quite comfortable.
Prorider 15 Airbag
- Gender: Male
This is a cool backpack in most respects. The material is strong and durable and the zippers don't get stuck. The volume is perfect for avy gear and what I need for a day of touring and no more. Perfect slackcountry pack or even day trips. (Space is a personal thing though so others might find it a bit small) Ski attachments work very well. My only (but major) complaint is the bulk of the shoulder straps. They are very stiff and large. I found them to be too bulky to comfortably wear all day long. By the end of the day, touring or on the lifts, my shoulders were sore and raw. Unfortunately, while I like the wraparound system, I will stick to the pillow type until these become more comfortable.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Very well built pack, fat zippers, seems indestructible . Only gripe is limited volume. Sleek and straps break in after a bit, until you have to pull and repack. Get all the fill adaptors if you plan on traveling on planes as well as extra seals. Easiest one to deal with for refills on the go. You will just need a couple of crescent wrenches as well as the place to fill it when you get there. Oh and the time to repack. If possible, fill and pull to see what your dealing with and then refill. Tank does take up space in pack as well, its more of a day pack. Nice ski attachments, hidden! Shovel, Probe, skins, water, snack. Tight fit To bad you have to buy the tank separately, mine came with it. Great pack all in all.
Does this pack have pockets/holders/enough...
Does this pack have pockets/holders/enough room for a shovel and probe?
Yes, you should be able to fit a probe and shovel in just fine. Probably an extra layer and skins too.
It fits a shovel, probe, skins and an extra layer and some water but that's pushing it.
