Product details: Tested product Ortovox Ascent 22 Avabag Avalanche Backpack (without Cartridge) Desert Orange
The Ortovox Ascent 22 Avabag is an extremely light avalanche backpack: including the Avabag system developed by Ortovox and a cartridge (not included), it weighs only 1950 g.
The light and sensationally airbag system is compact. 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. The handle can be gripped with any type of glove, and is suitable for both left and right-handed users. The Avabag works without electronics and is compatible with all Ortovox Avabag backpacks.
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 polyamide. But this airbag backpack is not only light – it also provides a high level of wearing 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 Ortovox Ascent 22 Avabag backpack what it is: a technical, ultra-lightweight avalanche backpack for challenging ski tours.
