AlpRide Avalanche Airbag Inflation Kit
The AlpRide Avalanche Airbag Inflation Kit consists of two gas cylinders designed for the AlpRide 1.0 and 2.0 avalanche airbag systems for backcountry touring. AlpRide's light, compact airbag system uses the same dual-canister design as life jacket cartridges used by the Navy for nearly fifty years for its strong, reliable inflation and leakproof durability. Since they're leakproof and easy to use, these canisters must be replaced after each use. They are approved by the IATA for flight travel.

- Q & A
Can you just carry an Airbag (say the G3 Cabrio) on board a flight with these 2 cartridges? They are non- refillable, so will TSA let you carry them on board?
Not a fight I want just before boarding a flight..
Unfortunately, I don't think TSA will allow these as carry on or in your checked luggage. Here is the direct language from TSA’s website: "Except for personal medical oxygen cylinders, you can only carry an EMPTY compressed gas cylinder onboard a plane" While these are IATA approved for flight travel, meaning you could bring them with you when heli-skiing or possibly air travel outside of the US. My guess is they will be compensated by security at US airports.
Is this the entire airbag system, or just the replacement canisters? The photos and the price imply just the canisters, but the description makes it sound like this is the entire system.
These are just the canisters. We will get the webpage updated.
