The Future of Backcountry Avalanche Survival, Airbags

This is a great invention to a big issue for backcountry boarding.

I love the side arms which show that the logic of these bags is to float you over the snow just like on water, the side bags operate just like a full body life preserver does, keeping your face out of the water now keeping you out of the snow.

This seems like a bit of a joke video but this is back country access’ version of an airbag, much simpler design. Logic would say to me this must be cheaper and has obviously less that can go wrong, it also seems to inflate faster. The difference is that this won’t keep your face out of the snow if you were say knocked unconscious in amongst the hectic slide down a mountain.
