The North Face Patrol Avalanche Airbag Pack

It may seem expensive, but if it keeps you afloat in an avalanche, it'll seem like a bargain. The North Face Patrol Avalanche Airbag Pack ($1,200) is a fully serviceable backpack, with internal pockets in the main compartment for organization, a ski or snowboard carry system, and a large tool pocket. The real highlight, however, is the integrated ABS airbag system that, with a pull of the handle on the left shoulder strap, uses compressed nitrogen to inflate two large airbags that will help keep you on the surface and make it easier for rescuers to find you. With a 95% success rate in real-world use, it might just be a life saver.
