The Black Diamond AvaLung II may be the most important piece of life-saving equipment you can wear when traveling in avalanche terrain. While a beacon can be a great body locator device, the AvaLung II allows you to breathe fresh air directly from the snowpack, buying you precious time during a rescue.

Rebreathing exhaled air when you’re buried causes suffocation because the air becomes oversaturated with carbon dioxide and depleted of oxygen. The AvaLung II diverts the exhausted air away from your fresh-air intake zone, considerably extending the time your partners have to conduct a successful recovery.

This nine-ounce shoulder sling is proven to extend lives; it’s trusted by guides, avalanche control workers, patrollers and ski mountaineers worldwide.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to health and safety reasons, we cannot accept returns of AvaLung systems if the plastic seal on the mouthpiece has been removed.
