Product Info

The low profile BCA Float 12 Airbag Pack is the ideal safety pack for heli and cat operations or sidecountry laps just out of the resort. Big enough for snow safety gear, a hydration system, and a few snacks, this bare minimum capacity pack will save weight, energy, and possibly your life.

Float 2.0 System Nearly 30% smaller and 15% percent lighter than BCA's Float 1.0 engine, the Float 2.0 engine fits inside the Float airbag compartment, freeing up more valuable space in the main compartment. The Float 2.0 is built into their stripped-down, lightweight and durable new Float 17 Speed and Float 27 Speed avalanche airbag packs. Between their sleek new engine and their svelte new packs, BCA shaved 20% off the weight of their Float 1.0 system.

WarningWearing an airbag backpack is no guarantee of survival in an avalanche. Backcountry travelers are highly advised to educate themselves in snow stability assessment, route finding, and companion rescue and carry all of the conventional avalanche gear in addition to the airbag.
