It's a scary thought to be buried under a blanket of snow. But Safeback's innovative avalanche rescue technology makes it possible to breathe under masses of snow even without a mouthpiece. In doing so, Safeback transforms danger itself into a life-saving resource. Snow is made up of ice and air, and that air is usually inaccessible to avalanche victims. The SBX, however, pulls the air out of the snowpack and delivers it to the wearer's breathing zone. Avalanche victims can breathe with it for up to 90 minutes.


CamelBak Fusion 2L Reservoir

An optimal companion for hot summer days and sweaty mountain bike tours is the CamelBak Fusion 2L Reservoir.
