DescriptionThe Black Diamond JetForce Tour utilizes the rapid-discharging, capacitor-based Alpride E1 system, which is a new innovation in airbag pack technology. Featuring a fully-electronic, turbine-based fan system powered by supercapacitors, the JetForce Tour is cartridge free, making travel easy, and it charges via a micro USB and two AA batteries. The system is compact and simple to use, with a single on/off switch and blinking status indicator lights that can be visibly checked from the outside of the pack while being worn. The pack’s mechanical deploy trigger can be switched from shoulder to shoulder for customized preference, and once the pack is deployed, two AA batteries will recharge the capacitors in less than one hour while in the field. The pack features a dedicated avalanche safety pocket, which stows a shovel handle, probe and shovel blade perfectly. The spacious main compartment stores the sleek Alpride E1 system and is easily accessible with a ¾ length zipper that gives the pack a convenient, front-loading design. At 26-liters, there’s plenty of room to stash extra layers, food, water and emergency gear. The comfortable hip-belt features a stash pocket and also comes with a standard leg-loop to keep the pack from being pulled overhead in the case of an avalanche.

JetForce Tour 26L Avalanche Airbag Pack is rated out of 5 by 22.
Rated 2 out of 5 by JoeQ from Solid pack with one major flaw I have only owned this pack for a month but I’ve been able to use it about 6 times. The size and fit served my needs extremely well. I also flew with the bag and had no issues with TSA. My main complaint is with how the bag carries skis. While on a trip at Silverton, I put the bag through it paces with a half dozen hikes. The weight of the skis forces open the avy bag pouch. I ski 189cm BC Atris with shifts. While this isn’t an ultra-light setup, I expected a $1200 bag to be strong enough to hold that setup. The guides had seen this problem before and advised using a ski strap to secure the top pack loop to the main handle. This unfortunately does not allow the air bag to operate if skis are mounted. If you’re not worried about using your air bag while your skis are strapped to the bag, this is a great option. I personally prefer full functionality while on steep boot packs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mtn Bum from Comortable, has all the right things I work as an avalanche instructor, I got this bag so that I could demonstrate an airbag deployment to students as many are curious about airbags. Great to be able to do this and not need cartrages. I have a few cretiques in order of priority: Hard to get into the bag to turn it on when the pack is full or you are wearing gloves. 30L would be a better size and allow me to pack a puffy jacket. outer pocket is slightly small for some of the larger shovle blades out there.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DCC_ from Alpride E1 System is Great. Pack is ok at best I have had this pack one week and it has already ruined a goretex jacket. The black dye leached into the jacket and even after hand washing the jacket is permenantly dyed. Really unhappy about that. Summary: Good pack, not really tailored to touring. I toured with this for 7 days 8-9 hours a day. The pack has good storage space, and the dedicated shovel/probe pocket is great. I would say this pack better suited to patrolling inbounds. That said it is a heavy pack with extra strap material, and superfluous padding that should have been cut for weight. (not padding between back and pack, but outside of pack facing the air) Pros: -Sturdy, well put together and should last a long time -Alpride E1 is amazing -Integrated helmet holder is clutch Cons: -Poor quality dye leached into jacket (really really big con) -Extra weight for a touring pack, should have cut some of the foam -Does not shift weight to the hips well, for touring your shoulders will get sore after a couple days with any real weight in the pack

Rated 3 out of 5 by murphy1377 from Great Bag, but ruined my Jacket. Great bag... nice size for day trips and essential gear. Fits nicely on my back. Pockets are easy to use. Briefcase style of opening is great for organizing gear. However, the black dye in the bag stained and ruined my goretex jacket... worried the DWR coating is trashed. Great product...but don't know what to do. $1200 bag ruined $700 coat...

Rated 5 out of 5 by SilverFox IV from Very light and comfortable This aval bag is very different than my Mammut bag, so it took a little getting use to packing. Super comfortable touring with, but bucket is a little small, so difficult to use with gloves. There much more room it the main area than appears because of space above the fan. Wish it included a water bladder pouch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by outsideplease247 from Visual aids? Seems like a nice pack. Where on earth can I find a video or photos explaining the pack with all the straps, and how everything sits on it? Especially the diagonal ski strap set up. Nothing in instructions.
