Bringing good gear is always a safety precaution, but this pack takes that idea a little further: The Orbit’s toplid contains clothes pin-size RECCO chip, a technology long used in ski pants and avy packs. The chip can be located by search and rescue teams using either handheld or helicopter-borne RECCO detectors; a RECCO-equipped chopper can search a square mile in 16 minutes—an effort that takes hours on foot. The Orbit’s trampoline backpanel allows for good airflow, and the hard plastic frame offers comfortable weight distribution.
