The Black Diamond JetForce pack provides added security when you venture into the backcountry. A first in the industry, the JetForce pack marks a departure in the world of avy airbags by utilizing a battery and fan-based system.
The technology is unique in the sense that it abandons traditional canister deployment systems by utilizing a lithium ion battery-powered jet fan. Since the system is rechargeable, it eliminates the cost of expensive canisters and refills, and it gets rid of the added hassle of trying to travel with compressed air or nitrogen. Not only that, but the battery will support at least four deployments on a single charge. The bag itself is made of a puncture-resistant Cordura fabric and is designed to automatically deflate after three minutes in order to potentially create an air pocket in the off-chance of a full burial.
