Topic - ABS bag for avalanches

Donnie - on 13 Jan 2013
Hello. I'm new to winter climbing and I just watched the Friday Night vid of a skiier getting stuck in an avalanche. This scared me quite a bit, so I was looking at safety equipment for avalanches and came accross the AVB bags that you inflate when an avalanche hits.

Everything I can see on the internet ralating to them seems to be about skiing. Do mountaneers use them too? Are they appropriate for Scottish winter?

Cheers
