ABS Avalanche Rescue Devices Vario 15 Backpack - $879.96

Beacons may help you get found in case of a slide, but your best bet for surviving it is to not get buried at all. The Vario 15 Backpack by ABS Avalanche Rescue Devices is a backcountry-ready pack that features airbags that will inflate to help keep you at the surface of an avalanche. Not only are you more likely to save yourself, but you're able to get to work helping others sooner. Even if you do end up partially buried in snow, the bags are almost always visible on the surface for quick rescue. - $879.96
