The BCA Float 22 is the smallest and lightest of the range, the Float is one of the lightest airbags on the market and now comes with a removable airbag section.

The BCA Float 22 is designed for lift severed off piste riding, it has a super low profile fit and is probably one of the better choices for in resort off piste riding, due to its sleek uncluttered design.

The available pack size is good for day use, there is enough space for shovel probe, drink first aid kit, and a thin extra layer, if your looking to do some ski touring then the larger size maybe a better option.

From BCA website their information:

The Float 22 is designed for out-of-bounds, off-piste, freeride, and mechanized skiing and snowboarding. 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.

Now the lightest and most affordable airbag backpack available, the Float 22 will easily carry your winter rescue tools, lunch, water, and extra layer for a full day in the backcountry. New for the 2012/2013 season, BCA's Float System is now removable and interchangeable between packs. BCA's 165 certified refill locations around the world make it the easiest refillable airbag system on the market. The Float airbag system does not guarantee survival in an avalanche incident. Educate yourself, make good decisions, and know before you go. Float cylinder must be purchased separately.

General BCA Float information:

The airbag in the BCA Float range inflates from the top of the back pack and is a single 150 litre bag design, inflating behind the head to offer float and added protection to the head and upper body. The design allows good vision in an avalanche situation to inflate and then ski away from the avalanche.

Refilling of the BCA cylinders can be done by returning to us, there is also the facility to refill via a SCUBA to paint ball adapter system.

Flying with the BCA Float

Flying with your BCA Float avalanche airbags is the same as Snowpulse and ABS systems, you will need to pre book your airbag at least 2 weeks prior to flying and then take with you two copies of the IATA regulations (see download handbook below for copy), keep one copy with your documents and the other copy place on the BCA Float airbag.

Be prepared for a slightly longer check in process as almost always you will be called to out size luggage check to qualify your airbag. Please call us if you need more information we have had many customer fly all over the world with their airbags, with little or no problems as long as you follow the guide lines.

One thing we would add is that the IATA guide lines say that you can get your airbag on board as hand luggage, please don’t try this its not worth the hassle you will get at the airport.
