EXTREMELY LIGHTWEIGHT AVALANCHE BACKPACK
The ASCENT 22 AVABAG is our extremely light avalanche backpack: including the AVABAG system (the airbag system developed by ORTOVOX) and cartridge, it weighs only 1950 grams.
The light and sensationally compact airbag system weighs in at just 690 grams*. Another special feature of the AVABAG system is the activation training: you can practice activating it again and again without the cartridge attached, so that you can be well prepared for an emergency situation.
One reason for the low weight of the ASCENT 22 AVABAG is the use of extremely light but abrasion-resistant materials such as 100D Robic Ripstop nylon. But this airbag backpack is not only light – it also provides a high level of wear comfort. The foamed 3D back system distributes the weight evenly between the hip fins and the lightly padded shoulder straps. Features such as a circular frontal zipper that provides quick access to your equipment, as well as a diagonal ski attachment, an ice axe holder and a rope fastening, make the backpack what it is: a technical, ultra-lightweight avalanche backpack for challenging ski tours.
*Weight fluctuations of +/- 4% may arise during manufacturing.
