There are many people who probably wish they were Shaun White or Mikaela Shiffrin, but for those who like to indulge in the odd winter sport, extra precautions probably need to be taken; enter the Mammut Avalanche Airbag. It is a backpack with a stowable airbag that ensures the wearer stays near the top if the unspeakable happens.

Considering the winter the world has been experiencing this year, the Mammut Avalanche Airbag will come in particularly handy. With its U-shaped aluminum frame to help support the load, removable snowboard carrier, a front pocket for tools and a sleeve for a hydration reservoir, it is a great accessory that will assist people in everyday ways as well. It is made with backcountry enthusiasts in mind.
