Local Denver Company - SubQ Designs - And their Airbag Jacket

DENVER (CBS4) – A Denver man has come up with his own avalanche airbag device he says is different than others on the market, and the change in design could get more people to wear avalanche airbags.

There’s no question that the backcountry is the ultimate playground, but it has a very dangerous side.

“Technology in terms of backcountry is booming right now,” said Wes Worthington, who works with SubQ, a Denver-based company that is helping outfit backcountry users with airbag-equipped jackets, a first-of-its-kind move.

Teton Gravity Research gives their approval.

The outdoor gear world has been buzzing about innovative pieces of avalanche safety gear. This year, at both SIA and Winter OR, companies like Arva and Arc'teryx released new avalanche airbag packs to consumers. With more skiers and riders accessing backcountry locations, the need for both better, lighter equipment, coupled with the right knowledge, is paramount. 


Salt Lake City-based SubQ Designs has released a jacket that is the first of its kind. The Jackson Airbag Jacket is a 10K shell with an integrated ABS airbag system built right into the jacket. Prior to The Jackson, all ABS avalanche airbag systems have been built into backpacks or vests, which can be bulky, push you off the chairlift if you don't make the effort to take them off, and add unwanted swing weight to your back while sending cliffs and carving powder turns. 

Outside Magaizine Raves and Names SubQ's ABS Avalanche Airbag Jacket "Gear of the Show" at Outdoor Retailer

January 05, 2016

From Outside Magazine:


We always wear an airbag pack at ski areas like Jackson Hole and Silverton because of the great backcountry terrain. But here’s the problem: riding a crowded chairlift with a bulky pack sucks. 


Enter SubQ. The small company just launched the Jackson—a fully waterproof-breathable jacket with a built-in, removable safety tool pack (for your shovel and probe), and ABS airbag system. It’s designed to be more svelte than a pack, but just as capable.

Dean Cummings and H2O Guides Chooses SubQ's The Jackson Airbag Jacket

January 20, 2016

Dean Cummings and H2O Guides, a premier heli skiing operation in Valdez Alaska, chooses SubQ as thier safety good of choice. When navigating the Chugach, education and knowledge of your surroundings, the weather, and snow conditions is the most important component. Safety devices such as a beacon, shovel and probe are mandatory, and now airbags are becoming the 4th mandatory backcountry piece of safety equipment due to thier considerable increase in survival in the event of an avalanche. 


The advantage of the The Jackson Airbag Jacket in the heli world is not having to take your pack on and off while entering and exiting the chopper. The heli zip on the SubPack allows for a quick disconnect of the tank from the system. This will allow clients to take 1-2 more runs per day. On a 5 run day, this is significant!
