Backpacks with airbag system - practical helpers for emergencies
An airbag backpack can do much more than a conventional ski backpack. The backpacks, which are specially designed for ski tourers and freeriders, come with an integrated avalanche airbag, which can ensure that the buried victim is found more quickly in the event of an avalanche or, ideally, can free himself from his predicament.

Airbag backpacks can complete the avalanche protection gear of off-piste skiers. Visually, these rescue devices hardly differ from conventional ski touring backpacks. The crucial difference is the integrated avalanche airbag. This airbag consists of two signal-colored balloons, which are usually attached to the side of the model. In an emergency situation, the airbag can be triggered by a pull.
If you want to buy your avalanche equipment online, you will find a well-stocked selection of the most diverse storage options in the Ski Shop at XSPO. The customer can choose between a simple model and retrofitting the avalanche airbag, or products that are ready for immediate use. A new development are those variants that have airbags positioned behind the head.
For skiers who love deep snow adventures, these products should be standard equipment. Avalanche airbags increase the chances of survival of a buried victim, as the body volume increases within seconds, thus increasing the chances of remaining on the surface. This means that the skier is immediately visible to the rescue services. Since these products also offer sufficient storage space, they can of course also be used for all other slope adventures.
Touring ski airbag backpacks, together with avalanche equipment consisting of an avalanche transceiver, Probe and shovel, are part of the basic equipment of every skier who ventures into deep snow far from the slopes. This equipment has been proven to save lives in avalanches and is therefore indispensable for every responsible winter sportsman.
