Arc’teryx Voltair 20 Backpack – 1220cu in
While a bunch of needless bells and whistles may earn some oohs and hhs on the trade show floor, most backcountry travelers prefer intuitive use and simple functionality when using their gear out in the field. Putting simplicity at the forefront of its design, the Arc'teryx Voltair 20 Backpack marks a departure in avalanche airbag systems through a powerful fan-powered system that can be deployed multiple times in a single day and is reliable in temperatures down to -22F.Arc'teryx's Voltair airbag system utilizes a 22. 2V lithium-ion polymer battery (sold separate) that's rechargeable and capable of inflating the bag upwards of 20 times a day in temperatures as low as 14F. This multi-deployment system doesn't just provide extra peace of mind when you're traveling in the backcountry, but it gives you, the user, the opportunity to practice with the bag in the field, so you won't be caught off guard in the event of an emergency. The simple and intuitive deployment system consists of an always-exposed mechanical pull that can be quickly unlocked and deployed with just a quick twist and pull. The mechanical deployment system does away with any hiccups that may come with an electronic system, ensuring the bag deploys when it matters most. Once activated, the centrifugal blower rapidly inflates the airbag in under seven seconds, then ensures the bag maintains proper inflation by pushing additional air in the bag every five seconds after the initial deployment.The pack itself maintains a simplistic design that consists of two main compartments and a dedicated avy tool pocket to stow your climbing skins, shovel, probe, and saw. External straps along the front of the bag will carry either skis or a snowboard and single ice axe when traveling in the alpine. A key component to any avalanche airbag is the pack's leg loop, so Arc'teryx gave the Voltair a simple and comfortable one-handed, glove-friendly wiregate leg loop clip, so you won't be tempted to leave it unclipped ...
