The Black Diamond Halo 28 Jetforce is ideal for day tours in the mountains where you will need to be carrying avalanche safety equipment as well as the added protection of an airbag in case of avalanche. Comfort is ensured thanks to the reACTIV suspension that allows the hips to move independently of the pack along with SwingArm shoulder straps. The pack has dedicated pockets for probes and shovels as well as diagonal ski carry, neither of which will impede the deployment of the airbag system.
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 the push of a button that 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.
