Default snowpulse charger vest vs bca mtnpro vest

Anyone actually tried the snowpulse charger vest? Its definitely light weight at 2 lbs lighter then the BCA mtnpro, but the descriptions don't say what it has for protection. I'm not sure I like the over the head put it on either. I've seen some good reviews about the BCA mtnpro vest so was leaning that way until I came across the charger vest.

Currently I have a Wary avivest and its ok but they went out of business and its pretty hot to wear so wondering if there is something lighter/better out there yet.

Any input is appreciated.
Tom

I'm running a SnowPulse Charger vest this year. Last year I wore a TekVest & BCA Float 22

The Charger vest is the same weight as my BCA Float 22...and it's a vest... I wouldn't say the protection is equal to that of the TekVest (I was wearing a snocross TekVest), but it's decent, and you can always add more padding to it.

As far as comfort... the weight of the pack and whatever you have in it, is disbursed much more equally than just a pack.

I've never worn the BCA vest, but, w/ canister, the SnowPulse Charger vest is 2lbs lighter. However, I don't think you could go wrong with either option

thanks for the info, do you find the charger a pain to put over your head or maybe the snocross tekvest was the same style?
