Climbing mountains can be a dangerous hobby, and that’s why the folks at The North Face have introduced their Face Patrol Avalanche Airbag Pack.

The avalanche airbag backpack was created to enhance protection during winter excursions in the back country. The airbag system will deploy thanks to compressed nitrogen helping to prevent burial in an emergency situation like an avalanche, also making it easier for a rescue team to locate you. The AB airbag system has seen a 95% success rate in real world use, and comes equipped with over sized, water resistant zippers that are built to resist both zipper failure and slider damage.  Purchase yours today at REI online.
