The airbag system is the new standard in safety equipment, allowing a person to stay above in event of an avalanche. It is meant to be an aid to one's safety with use of a beacon, probe, and shovel, and not a reason to take additional risk in the backcountry. The primary function is to increase a victim's volume (buoyancy) by inflating an airbag around the backpack. The system is equipped with a simple lockable/rotating handle, that when pulled for deployment, fills the airbag in just a few seconds. The airbag is brought to the surface of the snow based on the physical phenomenon "reverse segregation" which consists of pushing up (lift) lighter volumes among a multitude of moving particles.
Activating your airbag pack in an avalanche emergency is simple, as it should be. We have designed the handle to be in the ideal position for a quick reach and natural diagonal pull, this is a key design element as our research indicates nearly half of avalanche victims that deployed airbags were already moving with the snow when they activated their system. Another benefit to our system is the capability to "dry-fire" practice pull and reset the pin with the included reset tool. We recommend to do this a few times because it is the same muscle memory and tension, regardless if the canister is in or not. In the event of a deployment with the gas canister loaded the pin is automatically reset.

It is possible to detach the REACTOR system from the backpack and transfer it to another REACTOR compatible bag. However, in the US currently we do not sell empty bags of any size as empty, so this is mostly for service or pack upgrades.
Yes, we have both right and left, and if needed one high and low adjustment. simply pull the pin and re-wire the cable to the preferred spot. It is a good idea to note or photo the cable so you dont forget where it goes, but our design should place the handle in just the right spot and the optimal angle for pulling in a fast emergency situation.
