Stack the odds in your favor with the Survival Backpack!


Without a Survival Backpack, the chances of walking away from an avalanche aren't great, but if things do hit the fan, it's nice to know you'll have an extra line of safety to fall back on. Not that wearing the Arva Reactor 32 Avalanche Airbag gives you a green light to ski any slope on high-danger days, but you will be glad it's there when you feel the slope you're on give out beneath your feet. Arva is using technologies that have become the standard in avy airbags the last few years by giving the Reactor a canister deployment system (canister sold separate) and dual air chambers that actually absorb impact and help protect the head and neck from mechanical injury.

The height-adjustable pull handle gives you the ability to dial in the most comfortable feel for you, so you know right where to pull it in the event of an emergency. The Reactor system's collapsible handle locks into place, so you don't accidentally deploy it when you're getting on a ski lift. The design of the pack consists of a large main compartment that will haul enough gear for big tours and committing backcountry objectives. A front quick-access pocket stores avalanche safety equipment, and a single eyewear pocket keeps your goggles or sunglasses within easy access during transitions. The ventilated back panel offers a comfortable fit, and its back length and shoulder straps can be dialed into match your torso length.

Please note: this airbag system is NOT a guarantee that you will survive an avalanche; get educated, get the right tools, travel with partners, and be smart out there.
