It's a question every backcountry touring aficionado should ask. Everyone hopes they'll react safely, but only hours and hours beacon drills and safety practice can really solidify your chances at a safe reaction. Hopefully you'll only use your beacon, probe, and shovel during practices, just like deploying Arva's Reactor 24 Avalanche Airbag Backpack when you're at home with your buddies filming you for social media likes. That might sound trivial, but habitually knowing where the handle is on your body is pretty essential if you ever have the misfortune of a slab sliding under your skis or splitboard. The airbag itself features a gas canister deployment (cylinder sold separately) through dual air chambers around your neck, head, and sides for increased shock absorption and overall reliability. There's a chance an avalanche could pop an airbag, but this bag's dual chamber design can help you stay afloat if only one chamber pops. Arva made the safe-locking, retractable handle completely adjustable so you can place it right where you want.
