Editors' Choice Award
If we could only own one airbag pack for everything from day tours to hut-to-hut skiing, this would be it
Top Pick Award
One of the best airbag systems that sports a solid design that is good for most day trips - as long as you don't need extra gear for colder temps or technical descents
A top-notch pack design ready for any day trip; it can pull double duty for shorter or supported overnight adventures
Easily our favorite airbag pack for multi-day trips or anytime we need to stuff a lot in our pack
Best Buy Award
One of our favorite overall pack designs coupled with BCA's basic but extremely functional and reliable airbag pack; all at a respectable weight and a good price
Top Pick Award
If you have been considering an airbag pack but don't love how much weight they add to your touring kit, this pack is probably for you
A solid, no-frills design that brings exceptional backcountry utility and below average weight; it's complete with a modular airbag system
A well-designed larger volume airbag pack that excels for patrollers, guides, or other extended missions - it just doesn't fit the majority of short users
Top Pick Award
A great desig and great value; it can double for occasional day tours, making it tough to beat
