The SCOTT claim this is the ultimate freeskiing avalanche backpack. The Patrol E1 30 Backpack Kit features the Alpride E1 Airbag system. This fully electronic airbag system pushes the boundaries of innovation, thanks to its supercapacitor technology. The big benefits of Alpiride supercapacitor technology are
- Cold temperatures do not affect the performance or charge of the supercapacitor
- Turbo radial fan = more power and volume in a shorter amount of time
- 1280g full system weight = 720g lighter than any other electronic system on the market
- Mechanical trigger and deflation release = no electronic error possible
- No cartridges /no li-ion battery = no restrictions for travelling and shipping
- 2x AA batteries = recharge on the mountain without power supply
With A-frame & diagonal ski carry you should have no restrictions on where you can explore. As well as all the avalanche & hiking features you also get a very comfortable bag with good easy access to the main load area of the bag.
This bag is also available in a 22L daypack size or a 40L expedition size.
