The Black Diamond Pilot 11 Jetforce is a minimalist pack for epic days where you will be moving fast and carrying lighter loads making the Pilot the pinnacle in heli packs. Essential probes and a shovel can be carried in the dedicated tools pocket while the main zipped compartment is ideal for stashing extra clothing along with snacks and a drink. When your're on the move the reACTIV suspension and SwingArm shoulder straps will keep the Pilot stable ensuring day long comfort. A superb pack for the backcountry.
Jetforce is a joint technology that has been developed by Black Diamond and Pieps. Unlike other current airbags that use compressed air Jetforce uses an electronic system that includes a very powerful fan. The Airbag is deployed with a pull of the handle which powers the fan, quickly inflating the 200 litre airbag. And it can be repacked and redeployed on a single charge up to four times due to the powerful lithium-ion battery.
The trigger handle incorporates a "good-to-go" which checks the entire electronic system every time it's turned on, this is displayed via a series of LED lights. The Jetforce fan inflates the airbag in 4 seconds which is then followed by a series of top up bursts for the next 3 minutes ensuring the bag remains inflated. After 3 minutes the airbag then automatically deflates creating a pocket of air, allowing you to breath should you be buried at this point.
The airbag is manufactured from tough and durable Cordura fabric that is highly puncture resistant and is easy to repack. And one of the major advantages of the Jetforce system is that it is totally travel friendly as there is no compressed air, brilliant for air travel to North America.
