  • John Towne, Avalanche Airbag Save, Mt. Baker, WA

    John Towne, his dog, and a couple friends were riding the backcountry at Mount Baker in early January 2017 when an avalanche broke. He was in the middle of it and quickly started to sink.

    “Thankfully,” John says, “I invested in your Float 32 airbag backpack. I deployed it, and it kept me on the surface.”

    “I’m highly recommending your airbags to all my friends and now I have this scary situation to use as a learning and teaching experience,” reported John.
