Description

Show Description

With enough capacity for long touring days, this airbag pack is still reasonably light. It uses a compact AVABAG with a venturi inflation system that weighs in at around 690 grams. It's rigged with ski touring features so you can carry a helmet and skis, board or snowshoes, with a front compartment for your avi gear. A 3D shaped back panel and contoured hip fins offer comfort for touring and keep weight balanced and centred when it's time to make some turns.

  • Made of lightweight, abrasion resistant 100-denier nylon robic ripstop.
  • Water resistant zippers keep snow out.
  • Padded and shaped foam shoulder straps, hip fins and backpanel distribute the load.
  • Safety locking hipbelt and accessory leg loop keep the pack in place during an avalanche.
  • Large main compartment is accessed via C-shaped perimeter zipper.
  • Dedicated front compartment holds your avalanche gear.
  • Small top pocket has a zip and key clip.
  • Lots of external carrying capacity: dual ice axe loops, helmet holder, diagonal ski carry straps and webbing to hold a snowboard or snowshoes.
  • Hydration compatible (reservoir sold separately).
  • AVABAG airbag and venturi inflation system has a lightweight and compact design that removes and installs quickly.
  • Sealed inflation unit uses no electronics and cannot be compromised by dirt, ice or corrosion.
  • Airbag uses welded seams, resistant to leaks and light compared to traditional sewn, seam-sealed designs.
  • Release handle is height adjustable and ergonomically shaped so it's grab-able with gloves, and with either hand.
  • Includes airbag and pack only. Refillable air cartridge available separately. Empty cartridges can be filled at approved centres such as dive shops or paintball stores.
