Arc'teryx issues advisory notice on Voltair airbagArc'teryx has issued an advisory notice on its Voltair air bags. Apparently, there are some issues with the bag deploying in very cold temps. This from the brand:
"Our quality control team has recently discovered an issue with our battery which affects its proper deployment at extremely cold temperatures due to an unanticipated change during battery production. This change impacts the proper deployment of the airbag when the battery is exposed to
temperatures below -20°C (-4°F).
Due to this change, we are revising the minimum operating temperature limit for Voltair Airbags from -30°C (-22°F) to -20°C (-4°F). No other parts of the Voltair Airbag have been affected by this change.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. With the newly stated temperature limit of -20°C (-4°F), we are confident the airbag is still a great solution for your backcountry adventures"
Arc'teryx is giving owners 2 options. They can either keep the bag or send it back. In both cases, you get a $250 arc'teryx gift cert. for your troubles. Look here for more info.
