The North Face Patrol 24 ABS avalanche airbag daypack combines our legendary Patrol pack with leading, proven ABS avalanche airbag technology. The evidence is clear that ABS airbags save lives with a 95% real-world avalanche survival rate when deployed. With the pull of an activation handle, two integrated 85 litre airbags deploy as they are filled with compressed Nitrogene gas. These bags help keep the rider on the surface and visible for a more rapid rescue. The mantra is stay on top as burial depth and time is related to an unfavourable outcome. The ABS system is completely removable, air travel friendly and doesnt compromise the available pack volume which is designed to accommodate every necessary back country tool - shovel, probes, skins, axes, crampons and more. Rigorously tested, researched and designed, The North Face Patrol 24 ABS is a proven tool for increasing back country safety without compromising the experience.
