Avalanches are something we always hear about at the news. One of those things that “it’ll never happen to me!”.

Well guess what … if you like winter sports and go mountaineering during the cold season - IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU!

The guys at North Face, came up with a security device to help you in case you get caught in an avalanche. The system includes an Airbag Backpack to offer you the desired protection. In case of an avalanche, the airbag will deploy thanks to compressed nitrogen, it will prevent the snow burial and make it easier for the rescue teams to find you.

The Patrol Avalanche Airbag is advertised as follows:

  • 95% success rate in the real-world use
  • Manual (handy placed) ABS activation pull
  • Large pockets to fit your gear
  • Ski/Snowboard carry system

Did you or anybody you know ever got caught in an avalanche? What’s your take on how would a such security Abs Backpack help in such situation? Let us know in the comments …
