New Backpack From The North Face Has Airbags

When you’re battling against an avalanche, you can never take too many safety precautions.  The North Face has developed a vest/backpack system that may tip the odds in your favor when fighting mother nature.  You deploy these butterfly wing bags in hopes of softening blows to the body as you tumble down the mountain, as well as, to keep you on top of the snow and make you more visible to rescuers.  The North Face is claiming a 95% success rate in field tests.  Not sure who volunteered for that one…
