    I'm looking for an avalanche airbag, but the question is which one I should buy. Obviously you have ABS, but also Mammut. I saw the airbag from Black Diamond, the Jetforce and I stumbled upon this video. I like the airbag because it's a fan and not a cylinder. Do you guys have experiences with backpacks? What are the pros and cons of the several systems?

    Give me powder please

    My suggestion is that you try on multiple backpacks. Some brands will fit you perfectly, others won't. I have an ABS pack for a couple of years now and that works perfect for me (I never had use it fortunately). I can imagine that the Jetforce is easier on airplanes, I have no experience with that. Good luck!

    Same advice here. Check all the brands. In my opinion it doesn't really matter what system you use. They all do the same: hopefully keep you on top of the snow. I'm interested in the Jetforce airbag myself, but I couldn't find it anywhere last season. Maybe it was sold out quick.
    Vive le old school!
