BCA’s new Float 2.0 airbag system—including the cylinder, ejector, bag and engine—is 30 percent smaller and 20 percent lighter than the original Float 1.0. Additionally, the cylinder is located in the airbag chamber, providing more space in the main compartment for your goods. The 2.0 system is compatible with the new Float Speed packs, the 27 Speed being about 20 percent lighter than BCA’s Float 32… so, you’re getting all-around weight savings to the max. This particular model’s 27-liter volume and manageable 5.7-pound weight (with full cylinder) is ideal for day trips into the backcountry.
