The Black Diamond
AvaLung™ II can prove to be the most important piece of gear you take with you when traveling in avalanche terrain. Weighing only 9.3 oz, the AvaLung II shoulder sling extracts air from snow (through breathable mesh material) and separates exhaled air containing carbon dioxide into a different part of the snow pack. This can be the key to your survival – while an immediate rescue effort is made by your partners – due to the very real danger of suffocation from rebreathing exhaled air while buried. The exchange of air is facilitated by a mouthpiece, tubing system and filtration fabrics using clever valves within the AvaLung that, at the moment of inhalation or exhalation, open and close to supply air while minimizing C02
contamination. The Black Diamond Avalung II also minimizes "ice masking" and tracheal packing to help maintain an open airway. It may be worn under a backpack (so long as the exhalation tube is free and clear) but the AvaLung must be worn over a jacket. Trusted by guides, avalanche control workers, patrollers, and ski mountaineers worldwide, the Black Diamond AvaLung II is proven to extend lives.
