Everyone hopes they'll react properly in the event of an avalanche, but only hours and hours of beacon drills and safety practice can really solidify your chances at a safe reaction. Hopefully you'll only use your beacon, probe, and shovel during practices, just like deploying Arva's Reactor 24 Avalanche Airbag Backpack. Knowing where the trigger is so you can react faster in an emergency is as important as practicing with your other avy gear. The airbag itself features a canister deployment (cylinder sold separately) through dual air chambers around your neck, head, and sides for increased shock absorption and overall reliability. There's a chance an avalanche could pop an airbag, but this bag's dual chamber design can help you stay afloat if only one chamber pops. Arva also made the safe-locking, retractable handle completely adjustable so you can place it right where you want, meaning it's easier to deploy in an emergency.

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.
