Simply perfect for mountain guides, course instructors and ambitious skiers: the Arcteryx Voltair 20 Avalanche backpack!
Thanks to the innovative technology of the Canadian High-End- Manufacturer, enables this airbag-concept to trigger multiple times without having to refill cartridges. When it comes to the Voltair-System, the u-shaped airbag will be filled with air, using a highly efficient turbine, instead of compromised gas. This provides several advantages. Firstly, the permanent usage is more favourable and less time consuming and secondly, the airbag grants more safety. Thanks to the ventilator, the blower can keep refilling the airbag even if it was to have little wholes. The efficient, rechargeable battery Lithium-Polymer (optional), when fully charged, can be activated up to 20 times, even in freezing temperatures!
The activator sits on the left shoulder strap, where it can easily be accessed and locked as well. The handle fits in the hand well and can easily be accessed even with gloves on. An integrated LED indicator turns on when the system is active.
The backpack has a detachable safety leash, which is equipped with a robust aluminium hook and due to its contrasting colours it can always be spotted. If the safety leash is wrapped around the leg, it prevents loosing the backpack when falling or sliding in the snow.
The backpack was made out of a waterproof, laminated Nylon fabric. It provides shelter in ongoing snowstorms and is extremely abrasion-resistant. The seam tracking makes the backpack ergonomically preformed. The same seam tracking can be found on the thermoforming, snow resistant back system as well. The rather flat waist belt comes with a pocket and ensures that the backpack sits perfectly on the back, without creating any bulk. All small components on the backpack are made to be easy accessible with gloves and all zips are coated. The Voltair 20 comes with load control straps, compression straps and carriers for skis, snowboards and ice picks. There is a bag for small equipment and a special subdivision for LVS- equipment. The bag is waterproof, preventing any snow from probe and shovel to get in touch with the remaining gear.
Off the slope with the Arcteryx Voltair 20 Backpack!
Note: The backpack was made larger, due to the fact that the airbag and blower are already integrated, leaving you with a useful volume of 20 litres and sufficient space for an additional battery.
