Technical, ultra-lightweight avalanche airbag pack for backcountry touring
The Ortovox Ascent 22 Avabag is an 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 Ortovox Ascent 22 Avabag is the use of extremely light but abrasion-resistant materials such as 100D Robic Ripstop nylon. But this airbag pack is not only light, it also provides a high level of 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 front zipper that provides quick access to your equipment, as well as a diagonal ski attachment, an ice axe holder and a rope fastener, make this pack what it is: a technical, ultra-lightweight avalanche backpack for challenging ski tours.
Please note, the cartridge needed to inflate the airbag is not included. It is sold separately in "Options and Accessories" below.
