Black Diamond - Halo 28 JetForce

The Halo 28 is an innovative, full-featured avalanche airbag pack, featuring Black Diamond's proprietary JetForce Technology. A true revolution in airbag technology, JetForce provides an added margin of safety in avalanche terrain.
JetForce technology is the result of a multi-year collaboration between Black Diamond and PIEPS, and is the first avalanche airbag system to use jet-fan inflation. Unlike other systems that use compressed-air canisters, the re-packable airbag and fully rechargeable electronics system provide zero-cost user practice and travel-friendly performance.
And since it's made by Black Diamond, you know the Halo has the ski features dialed: it has a dedicated front avy tools pocket, diagonal ski carry, back panel access, HiLo helmet holder and single ice-axe attachment for securing your gear.
