BCA Float Canister


Vendor: BCA

Title: BCA Float Cannister


The refillable Float compressed air cylinder is the power and driving force behind our Float system. When the Float trigger is pulled, it activates the release of 2,700 psi of compressed air, inflating the airbag. Always make sure your cylinder is full and connected correctly before heading out. Refillable, compressed air canister with pressure gauge. Compatible with all BCA Float avalanche airbags (Sold Separately).


BCA authorized refill stations charge approximately $20 for refills if there is no shipping involved. Do not attempt to recharge the cylinder at locations that are not authorized by BCA, as this process requires training, documentation and parts provided by BCA. For a list of BCA authorized refill stations, please see below.

Please contact retail locations before sending in your cylinder. Each location will have a slightly different refill policy.
