A Backcountry Skier’s Best Friend

Surprisingly, most backcountry skiers who die in avalanches aren’t killed by the sheer destructive power of the avalanche itself… but because they suffocate while buried under snow. The Aeros helmet is one simple & quick way to make survival more likely in the event of an avalanche. It not only protects the head & neck from injury, but creates an air pocket in front of the face so the wearer can breathe, offering more time for victims to activate other safety gear & for rescuers to locate those who are buried.
