ABS Avalanche backpacks have just been given a crucial update to increase their life saving capabilities. The new ABS Avalanche backpacks are now remote operated in the event of an avalanche.

The old backpacks had to be pulled by hand like a parachute which is fine if you can see or hear the avalanche coming. The new ABS Avalanche backpacks now come equipped with remote operation capabilities. If someone in your group sees you are about to be swept up by an avalanche they can activate the remote and inflate you to safety.

The ABS Avalanche backpacks are crucial for avalanche prone areas or for those who just want to be on the safe side. Read more about this life saving device down below.
