In the unfortunate situation that you reach for your ARVA Reactor trigger handle, you’re going to want a canister attached to the other end. These high-strength canisters are built to withstand the pressure necessary to inflate your airbag and durable enough to tolerate the rough handling brought on by mountain travel. The canisters are available in two versions:

  • Steel Air cylinders contain compressed air and can be refilled at ARVA refill centers as well as SCUBA or paintball shops. 630g.
  • Steel Nitrogen cylinders are pre-filled with nitrogen and can be exchanged at authorized ARVA retailers. They cannot be refilled. 530g.

Question from Robert Z
 
Can you refill an air canister? I don't mind sending a check for the refill + shipping (or any option you have available).

Hey Robert, we can definitely fill an empty canister that has been sent to us, but can't (unfortunately) send that filled canister back to you due to shipping regulations. I'd look around to nearby scuba shops and/or paintball-gun stores for a potential source of compressed-air refills.

Robert, depending on where you are located basically your options are 1- Refillable Blue canister, 2- Exchangeable grey canister, 3- Mail in with Arva or other dealer that can mail filled (hazmat). Technically a scuba or paintball place could do it with a special adapter, but most do not invest in this, keeping the process in specialty shops. www.canisterinfo.com has some more specific into as well.

Question from bmac
 
Looks like the mammut is easy to fill at scuba/paintball shops, or with a hand pump. Any word on the feasibility of those options with the Arva? I can't find much via google, and the Arva site says authorized dealers only (of which there aren't many).

Answer from Jeff
 
So Mammut , BCA and most others use a standard valve that can be filled pretty easily. Arva uses a different fitting and that is why they say authorized dealer only.

Answer from J J
 
Yes the Arva a little higher pressure and less moving parts, it is a trade off for smaller and lighter and possibly safer. Most info can be found at www.canisterinfo.com, more and more refill centers and exchange centers are being added every year.

Question from EdM
 
Do you guys exchange the used nitrogen canisters at your store? How much? Can you ship these?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey EdM! We definitely swap them out, but they're in-store only at the moment. Shipping filled nitrogen canisters gets spendy pretty quick.
