Show Description

With capacity for long touring days, this airbag pack is still reasonably light. It's rigged with touring features to carry a helmet and skis, board or snowshoes, and the front compartment fits avi gear. A 3D shaped back panel and contoured hip fins offer comfort and keep weight balanced and centered when it's time to make some turns. Plus, airbag system can be activated again and again without the cartridge attached, allowing you to practice activation before an emergency.
