Thanks!

I'm hoping for a good winter! At least there's somewhat of a formed pack this early vs. last winter, but alas, you can never tell.

3 months in a good area with great access to a lot of places though, so I'll most likely get to access some great pow stashes, steeps and not

I hope I won't have to pull the trigger, but it's confidence inspiring to be able to practise it well prior to potential use. Will report back, whether I've used it in an incident or just tinkering around.

destroy Here's a quick thought - you could surround the batteries in a heater. You could take those pocket hand heaters and wrap them in something nice and insulated like your down jacket or a fleece. That would probably keep them warm or at least warm enough for several hours at least. You might have to worry about too much heat as well, but this could work quite well at saving batteries in your checked luggage from the cold of the cargo hold.

Yeah, check if you're allowed to carry them with you in the plane. Batteries can suffer if they're in the checked-in luggage (tempreature).
The 4 camera batteries I had in the checked-in luggage on the last trip were dead after the flight

Elektropow Neni and other peeps, any comments on the Jetforce tech yet (hopefully not experience from intended use, but overall feel and useability)? I'm pretty close to ordering the Pieps 24L one.

Thought about the 10L, but since the 24L one has a board carrying system and compression straps, I don't think it'll restrict maneuverability too much...

neni I've ordered a Pieps 34L and a BD 40L some time ago but neither have yet been delivered. Ppl at the store claim that there were delivery problems but that they'll be on stock mid Dec. We'll see.

firlefranz So, has anyone made experience with the Pieps Jetforce? How does it compare to other avalanche bags?
