Black Diamond’s Jetforce Tour 26L features the new Alpride E1 airbag system, which is likely one of the lightest electrical airbag systems that’s offered in the marketplace. The system runs the usage of supercapacitator technology, which replaces the traditional lithium ion battery to save weight and be less susceptible to changes in performance in very cold temperatures–a huge bonus when you’re out in extremely cold conditions. No cartridges are necessary, making this system extremely go back and forth-friendly, and you can also practice with it without having to worry about refilling cartridges, meaning you can be better prepared in the event of an emergency. The Alpride E1 system easily charges in an hour with a micro USB, and can also be charged in about 40 minutes with two batteries even as you’re out in the backcountry. To make it more second-nature if you do ever wish to deploy the system, Alpride designed the trigger so it can sit on whatever side you prefer. With a generous 26-liter capacity, the pack itself has all of the bells and whistles for a day in the backcountry. The main compartment accommodates your food, water, layers, and first aid kit, and the separate compartment for your shovel and probe keeps them quickly accessible. An adjustable hip belt with a stash pocket keeps your inclinometer or sunscreen close at hand, and the included leg loop prevents the pack from being pulled over your head if you deploy it all through a slide.
