Black Diamond Bandit Avalung Pack 2012 - Designed for short tours, heli trips, cat trips and quick-hit missions out the resort gate, the Black Diamond Bandit AvaLung's streamlined construction stashes your essential avy tools and increases your chance of survival in the event of a slide thanks to its built-in AvaLung. The zippered panel opening gives you quick access to the enclosed shovel/probe compartments, and the diagonal ski secures your skis for steep boot packs.
Bandit AvaLung is also well suited for heli/cat skiing adventures and quick tours from your alpine hut.
Integrated AvaLung apparatus can increase the time you have to breathe if trapped in an avalanche; air is pulled in directly from the snowpack via a mouthpiece.
Exhaled carbon dioxide is directed out the exhaust port at the bottom right of the pack, extending the time available before an ice layer builds up and seals out oxygen.
Breathing tube runs through the left shoulder strap and can be positioned such that the mouthpiece is readily available.
Shovel and probe organization pockets allow simple access to your essential equipment.
Insulated sleeve helps prevent your hydration reservoir (sold separately) from freezing up; drinking tube routes through insulated right shoulder strap.
As with avalanche beacons, the Black Diamond Bandit AvaLung pack is not a substitute for wise assessment of hazardous avalanche terrain.
