Float 42


The Float 42™ avalanche airbag is designed for pros, guides, and those prepared for long days or overnights. Creating buoyancy and helping you float to the surface, the 150-liter airbag not only decreases your burial depth but also protects your head and neck from trauma in an avalanche.

The biggest avalanche airbag pack in the BCA line, the Float 42 was created to provide ample space not only for your winter backcountry tools, but for a first-aid kit, glacier equipment, and all supplies necessary for extended multi-day trips. BCA's backpack straps on this pack are hydration compatible and the airbag system is removable, making it the most versatile airbag backpack on the market.
