Back Country Access rucksack

We spotted this life-saving rucksack at a trade show earlier this year.

Using a gas canister in the pack, you deploy it if you are engulfed in an avalanche. Common in Europe, but yet to catch on here. Pricey, but worth it in a life-threatenening situation. What do you think? Would you invest in one?

Thanks to Gordon from Anatom, and Sarah from Cicerone for modelling!
