Featuring a super capacitor battery system and Scott's all new Turbo Fan, the Patrol E1 40 from Scott is everything you want in an airbag system. The revolutionary battery system requires much less power, which translates to a lighter and more compact system. This means that carrying a fan style system no longer means slugging around extra weight. The Alpride system weighs in at less than 3 pounds, and can be recharged very quickly- 40 minutes via AA batteries or 20 minutes if you charge with the USB port.
Fan systems also give the advantage of being able to travel with your pack to any exotic ski destination and practice with your system as many times as you like- all without having to worry about finding a refill station. The light weight design means you won't hesitate to reach for this pack tour after tour this winter, giving you an additional margin of safety. If the worst case does happen, the Turbo Fan deploys your bag rapidly giving you the best chance to stay on top.
The Patrol E1 40 offers the most volume out of Scott's lineup, perfect for big days in the backcountry or your next hut-to-hut trip. Gear loops on the outside of your pack can carry your ice tools or your skis, and a dedicated fixation point is designed to hold your helmet. The pack also includes a dedicated pocket for avalanche tools, safety straps on the hip belt, and a padded carry system for all day comfort. If you spend time in avalanche terrain, it's a good idea to add an additional safety margin, and the Scott E1 40 Airbag pack is one of the best.
