You probably already have a great, reliable backpack that you take with you everywhere you go, so why would you want to buy an ABS backpack? You wouldn’t, which is why North Face has created the Modulator ABS, a first-of-its-kind product that integrates ABS technology with the majority of backpacks currently available.

It’s intuitive design makes it one of the most versatile avalanche airbag systems on the market. It uses dual airbags to improve body positioning in a slide, and is activated with an ultra-reliable pneumatic trigger. The harness system that the ABS uses works with any backpack that uses two shoulder straps. It is highly tear resistant thanks to the ultra-strong dimension polyester material used to make it. What’s more, the packaging doubles as a storage bag to keep the system neatly contained until you need to use it. [Via]

It’s available now for $995 from Amazon.
