The Float Airbag system does not guarantee survival in an avalanche incident. Educate yourself, make good decisions, and know before you go.
Be in no doubt airbags are lifesavers hugely increasing your chance of surviving an avalanche by keeping you on the surface. The big advantage of the BCA system is using compressed air to inflate the bag and ease of refill through a local refill centre. Many other manufacturers are moving to compressed air systems, but unlike BCA they do not ship refillable cylinders to the UK market only north America. However, should you have a refillable air cylinder regardless of make I will fill it for you. Please replace your "O" rings using the supplied kit. For Anatom/Crankitupgear customers a refill only with "O" ring replaced will be only £5. £10 if we have to replace the "O" ring. All other customers £10 a refill. It's always worth a trial pop of your bag to get a feel for the trigger and importantly for learning to re-pack the air bag.
Avoiding Avalanches is always a better idea. Clachaig Inn have gained sponsorship for four winter safety lectures through Febuary 2013. Well worth attending. If you require some on snow training at one of the Anatom/BCA Beacon parks at Nevis Range or Glencoe, or snow safety training in Scotland then give me a call on the numbers above or email. Internationally go to the BCA educators list at www.backcountryaccess.com educators where you will also see me listed.
