The North Face Activation Unit

The North Face Activation Unit

  • The North Face Activation Unit will inflate your ABS airbags in your backpack when you pull the trigger.
  • ABS (Avalanche Airbag System)
  • The ABS system consists of airbags, an activation unit, and a compressed CO2 canister. When an avalanche releases, and before it comes to rest, you pull the pull handle, charged activation unit goes off, and the airbags quickly deploy and inflate out the sides of the pack. This may increase your flotation in an avalanche to keep you from getting completely buried. It also may make you more visible to ski partners who are looking for you when buried. Airbags are re-packable and reusable, and the CO2 canisters are refillable at a refilling station.
  • It is up to the user to be sure the pack and all necessary components of the ABS unit are in working condition before heading out into avalanche terrain.
  • Steel cartridge for North America is DOT and TC certified
  • Burst pressure at least 675 bar
  • Refillable
  • Filled weight approx. 585 g
  • Ships FULL – ground shipping only
