    The Black Diamond Outlaw Avalung ski pack is ideal for backcountry snowplay. It can increase the time you have to breathe if trapped in an avalanche.

    • Integrated AvaLung apparatus lets you breathe air directly from the snowpack via a mouthpiece
    • Exhaled carbon dioxide is directed out the exhaust port at the bottom right of the pack, extending the time available before an ice layer builds up and seals out oxygen
    • Breathing tube runs through the left shoulder strap and can be positioned such that the mouthpiece is readily available
    • User must be able to get the mouthpiece inserted before avalanche debris restricts movement; snowpack or injury can prevent its use
    • Suspension offers full range of motion, and optimal comfort for scrambling and climbing
    • Shoulder straps move in concert with your stride and reach by sliding through the bottom of the pack with a low-friction cable and housing
    • Shoulder straps are linked to together by the cable which helps maintain an even, balanced load across the shoulders
    • Front and back panel access to main compartment lets you get to your gear quickly and easily, even with skis or a snowboard attached
    • Dedicated avalanche tool pocket keeps a shovel and probe accessible
    • Insulated sleeve helps prevent your hydration reservoir (sold separately) from freezing up; drinking tube routes through insulated right shoulder strap
    • Hipbelt stash pocket keeps energy bars and other small items within reach
    • Bag is designed to carry skis A-frame or diagonal; also accommodates a snowboard
    • Note: The Black Diamond Outlaw AvaLung pack is not a substitute for wise assessment of hazardous avalanche terrain

    Please note: Black Diamond products can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

    Black Diamond Outlaw AvaLung Ski Pack is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Perfect Overall it is super comfortable and functional with a pocket for avalanche gear(even has a hole at the bottom to drain water). Has a pouch for hydration with an insulated sleeve. The access door on the back of the pack is super convenient when carrying skis. The one and only con I have with this pack is that when carrying a lot of weight the intake box will dig into your shoulder a little over time. So if you are not using the Avalung feature that day remove it and it will eliminate that con. For the most part you won't notice the intake box though. The material feels very durable and can hold plenty of weight. Also the pack is very stable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weekend Warrior Backcountry Pack I needed a new pack for my weekend trips up to the White Mountains. I have been also gathering gear for Backcountry. This looked like the perfect pack for me. What originally drew me to it was the AvaLung. I am a big fan of Black Diamond's gear and this pack has surpassed my expectations of a weekend pack. I have used this for bringing all of my gear and clothes for the weekend, as well as a pack for when skiing. The ErgoActiv technology sounded kind of cheesy to me at first. But I noticed when I put the pack on that the hip harness actually can swivel slightly. I took this through some pretty steep terrain, jumps, and glades. I have to say I was amazed at how I never felt it impacting my balance or performance at all. A feature that may get looked over at first glance is the flap on the back side of the pack that can open up and give you access to the main compartment. It has become one of my favorite things about this pack. Having skis mounted A-frame makes it hard to unzip the whole main compartment so just laying down your pack and opening it up through the back is just fantastic. I also really love the locking straps, they make it very fast and easy to tighten or loosen gear while still being able to hold a lot of weight. Overall It is one of my favorite pieces of gear I own now. It looks great, is super comfortable and functional, and it holds everything I need(even ice axes). I highly recommend purchasing this pack if you plan on taking weekend trips or going into the backcountry.
