Some argue the snowpulse can pack snow around your head inhibiting breathing.


Bottom line. GET SOMETHING. Any one is better then nothing.

I personally have the ABS Vario 30. I've had it for 3 years and still think it was the right purchase. Used for sledding and sled boarding. Now getting into split boarding.

UNDER THE RADAR: Exploiting “New School” Media to Capture Unreported Avalanche Incidents
by Bruce Edgerly.
It has some interesting insights about using social media for avy data collecting. Here's the pertinent part. . .

Edgerley on Airbags and Avalungs wrote:
Avalanche airbags were deployed in three incidents in the survey, by seven people caught in avalanches. Six of those seven stayed on the surface and survived with no injuries. The seventh person was pushed through trees and his airbag punctured. He died from asphyxiation.
In five incidents, the buried subject was wearing an Avalung. In two cases, the victim kept the mouthpiece in his or her mouth and could utilize the device after burial.
In three cases, the user was not able to keep the mouthpiece in, so was not able to take advantage of the device.
