Ultra light avalanche airbag system with enough storage for a ski tour.

The ASCENT 28 S AVABAG is an airbag backpack designed especially for women. This ski touring backpack has a shorter back system than the regular sized Ascent 30 backpack, as well as hip and shoulder straps adapted to the female anatomy. The AVABAG airbag system is extremely light at 690 grams* and sensationally compact. Another unique feature of this system is the activation training, which allows repeated activation practice without the cartridge attached. The ergonomically optimized activation handle can be gripped equally with either the left or the right hand.    

 A ski touring backpack not only needs to be functional – it also has to be comfortable, especially on long tours. With the ASCENT 28S, high wear comfort is ensured by the foam moulded 3D back system, which is both lightweight and strong. In terms of features,  from the separate safety compartment to the circumferential zipper, hydration system compatibility, ice axe and rope fastenings and a diagonal ski fastener – it has everything you need for a long ski tour! This ski touring backpack is also suitable for men with shorter backs.  Scroll down for further sizing information.
