NO MATTER HOW WELL PREPARED YOU ARE FOR AN AVALANCHE, THERE’S ALWAYS AN UNDERLYING RISK OF BEING CAUGHT UP IN ONE. YOU CAN HOPE LIKE HELL AND TRY TO SWIM TO THE SURFACE, OF YOU CAN GIVE YOURSELF A FIGHTING CHANGE WITH THE BLACK DIAMOND HALO 28L JETFORCE.

If you’re already well-versed in avalanche packs then you’ll probably know why the JetForce packs are, certainly on paper, a better option than a traditional gas-powered variant. However, for the uninitiated, the upside of a battery-operated unit versus a gas canister is it can be deployed anywhere, any time without the need to carry multiple back-up canisters. Each full charge of the battery gives you up to 4 activations - meaning you can charge it overnight, test deploy first thing in the morning and, if you happen to have a particularly unlucky day, you’ll still have 3 activations in the bank. 

Practice makes perfect

The result of years of R&D between Black Diamond and PIEPS, the JetForce is the first avalanche airbag system to use battery powered jet-fan inflation instead of compressed gas. The JetForce’s repackable airbag and fully rechargeable electronics system allow you to practice deployment frequently without the one-time-use refill costs associated with gas canisters. What’s more, there can often be challenges with air-travel when carrying compressed gas – not an issue with the JetForce system. 

Activated by grab handle housed in the strap, once pulled the unit immediately inflates the buoyancy aid, drawing air in through a mesh covered inlet valve on the side of the pack - so even if you’re late to deploy, the bag can still fully inflate without drawing in snow or debris from the surrounding environment. 

The Halo 28 is the middle size in Black Diamond’s Jetforce range, making it perfect for carrying your essential survival gear, as well as some backup clothing, food and fluids. It's perfect for day long ski tours in the backcountry and provides a truly innovative addition to your avalanche tool kit, keeping you safe in the backcountry and potentially risky terrain.
