Chris Burandt And Matt Entz Talk Avalanche Airbags

Shredders Chris and Matt took time out of a May ride to talk about avalanche safety, their airbag of choice and why they like them.

Matt talks about wearing a vest-style pack, stating, “I like that it gets really tight around me and it just keeps the load that’s within my pack close to me.”

Chris has a preference for a smaller pack “because it’s a little bit lighter, and I’m really minimalistic on what I actually carry in here.”

But Chris points out, it really doesn’t matter which style of pack you choose, as long as you carry the necessary avalanche rescue equipment you’ll be protected and well-equipped out in the backcountry. Check out the video below:
