Black Diamond Halo 28 JetForce 3 5 1 1
Great idea, questionable execution This bag is a great idea for those who spend time in the backcountry as it allows multiple deployments in a single day. If you ever find yourself needing to use this, your judgement may need to be questioned... However, in practice, I have come across lots of people with ABS bags (myself included) who say they are slightly hesitant to activate the unit. This is not a problem here. The bag activates almost as quickly as an ABS bag and to at least the same size. The fact that it deflates after three minutes is an interesting idea, which is supposed to leave an air pocket for the user to breathe in in the event of a burial whilst wearing the unit. The execution of the idea, however, is not such a success. After two weeks of using the pack and checking the battery daily I still had between 75% and 100% charge. The next day, half way up the mountain I tried to turn the bag on (not inflate it, just prime it ready to go) and the bag would not respond. Back in the hotel I popped the charger in and it sprang back into life as though nothing had happened. Clearly I am thrilled the bag works still, but not being able to turn it on on the mountain is literally a matter of life and death and this is the reason I will be returning the bag, and waiting for the bag technology to mature... The pack itself is sleek, with no extra unnecessary buckles etc to catch on things. The ski carriers work well, as does the avalanche safety pocket. I like the fact there is a place to stow the leg strap unlike on the ABS bags. The bag is quite heavy given the battery, but not to such a degree it will throw a skier off balance. 23 December 2014
