An easier and better way of having an avalung without having a separate piece on your person. I won't take a hydration bladder into the backcountry in the winter unless it is insulated. The BD avalung packs do a great job of keeping the water flowing and allowing you to feel organized. I've never had to use the avalung in an emergency situation but they do work.
