ABS Vario Base Unit Avalanche Backpack



Show Description

This base unit pairs with a Vario Pack to make an avalanche safety flotation system. To activate, pull on the handle, and a nitrogen canister inflates a pair of airbags. They’re positioned at the back of the pack, wing style, where they won’t interfere with your ability to swim in an avalanche. With a combined volume of 170L, they may reduce the chance of burial and make you more visible if injured or partly buried.

  • Airstripe back system with foam padding and breathable mesh material.
  • Ergonomic hip belt with pocket.
  • Infinitely adjustable chest strap.
  • Single integrated leg strap.
  • Easy docking to Vario Ultralight and Vario Storage Packs.
  • Meets TÜV guidelines for extreme operational demands.
  • Nitrogen canister is included. Please contact our Service Centre for shipping details.
