Default Black Diamond 2010 Avalung Pack Recall

I think the title says it all.

2010 Black Diamond AvaLung Pack Recall

Salt Lake City, Utah (December 14, 2010) - Black Diamond Equipment, Ltd. has recently discovered that the intake tubing on certain 2010 AvaLung Packs may crack under extremely cold temperatures. We are working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, and are in the process of obtaining final approval for a recall.
The recall will pertain only to a limited manufacturing run of Black Diamond AvaLung packs produced in 2010, which can be identified by the following PO# and model combination:
Recalls & Notices - Black Diamond Equipment, Ltd.

Not sure if anyone on the boards here has a 2010 Avalung pack, but if you do, check it out.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm still hoping to pickup their Outlaw Avalung pack sooner than later...

I was under the impression that BD was fixing or replacing these promptly? Is this wrong?

Can you get your money back for it? March seems like total bullshit!

Black Diamond should replace that pack with a non recalled or fix it asap imo. That's bullshit if they don't. You bought that pack to use this season after all...

spoke with both backcountry.com and BD today. I can return the pack for full refund from BC or send the avalung only to BD and they will check it out and send back if it's ok, or replace the avalung in late march when available. probably send it in to BD to see if it's effected then go from there.

Just send it back to BC and buy another one. The recalled packs are all pulled from stock. At least that is the way I'd do it.
