Usually, the hikers may face with some unexpected dangers because the environment is complex. Avalanche is one of the most serious accidents that the hikers are feared of. It often occurs suddenly, and most of the people can’t escape in time. The Emergency Backpack in Avalanche is just designed for this scenario. The user may press the red buttons on both sides when encountering with the avalanche. And then the backpack can open automatically into a firm tent. The user may lie into the tent to avoid damage from the avalanche until the rescuers come. On the other side, the product can be used as single person tent normally.
