"I believe the SubQ is perfect lift accessed backcountry, cat skiing, heli-skiing, and sledding." He went on to say, "this jacket embodies the perfect fusion for the backcountry enthusiast, easy to ski, climb, hike, and ride the lift without compromising safety." He added, "the vest taking the weight and distributing it is a major plus. The feeling of the weight on two shoulder straps makes boot packing with skis on your back a lot easier."

Bryan calls East Vail his home turf.

"I really like this setup, its light weight easy to use. In comparison to other ABS packs this would be the standard of comfort. The harness ads support to your body allowing more freestyle meneuverability. I would recommend this to riders who like being in the air where there is minimal swing weight so it won't throw you off balance." Congrats to Matt for finishing 7th overall in the competitive Subaru Freeride Series!

Andy calls East Vail home. He was introduced to the SubQ Avalanche Airbag Jacket in early 2015 and has been fired up about it since. Andy states the SubQ system is "All the backcountry you need without the pack. Fully integrated jacket with airbag system and room for the long haul."

"The SubQ Jacket is a highly practical fusion between safety and comfort in the backcountry skiing. Although I enjoy taking it touring with the zip on bag. I find it most ideal for the sidecountry laps. I feel safe exiting the gate with my shovel/beacon/probe and airbag and can huck without really noticing my gear at all."

"Rocked the pack and it was sick! Lighest and most comfy avy setup I have every used!"

Blaine agrees the low swing weight is ideal for the active rider.
