While a bunch of needless bells and whistles may earn some oohs and hhs on the trade show floor, most backcountry travelers prefer intuitive use and simple functionality when using their gear out in the field. Putting simplicity at the forefront of its design, the Arc'teryx Voltair 20 Backpack marks a departure in avalanche airbag systems through a powerful fan-powered system that can be deployed multiple times in a single day and is reliable in temperatures down to 14F.Arc'teryx's Voltair airbag system utilizes a 22. 2V lithium-ion polymer battery (sold separate) that's rechargeable and capable of inflating the bag upwards of 20 times a day in temperatures as low as 14F. This multi-deployment system doesn't just provide extra peace of mind when you're traveling in the backcountry, but it gives you, the user, the opportunity to practice with the bag in the field, so you won't be caught off guard in the event of an emergency.

External straps along the front of the bag will carry either skis or a snowboard and single ice axe when traveling in the alpine. A key component to any avalanche airbag is the pack's leg loop, so Arc'teryx gave the Voltair a simple and comfortable one-handed, glove-friendly wiregate leg loop clip, so you won't be tempted to leave it unclipped b...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
