The Black Diamond JetForce UL 26L is a superlight avalanche airbag system which uses the compressed gas based Alpride 2.0 system. The streamlined pack is constructed from 100 denier Dynex Ripstop which is incredibly durable for its weight. The total weight of the pack with cartridges is only 1991 grams, making it one of the lightest airbag packs on the market.
Featuring everything you need in a back country pack. The dedicated avi gear pocket keeps your shovel and probe separate from the rest of your kit. The tuck away diagonal ski carry allows the airbag to deploy while skis are attached to the pack. There is a single ice axe carry for those more technical days out. The 26L volume is large enough for everything you will need for a day in the back country. There's room for skins, spare layers and food and water.
The Jetfoce UL 26L uses the Alpride 2.0 airbag system. This system is lightweight and ultra compact, weighing only 690g and occupying only 1.7L of the internal volume of the pack. The Alpride 2.0 makes use of a purely mechanical activation system to puncture the compressed gas cartridges so there are few moving parts. The 150L airbag is made from a super durable 210 denier Nylon which is very puncture resistant. The trigger can be adjusted to fit your size and can be switched between the left and right shoulder strap of the pack depending on your preference. To keep the weight down the Alpride 2.0 system uses two small compressed gas cartridges (one argon one CO2) to rapidly inflate the airbag. These cartridges are non refillable so are disposed of once used.
