Product details: Ortovox Ascent 40 Avabag Avalanche Backpack excl. Cartr. Safety Blue

The Ortovox Ascent 40 Avabag has been designed for ski tours lasting several days and demanding skiing excursions. The focus here is upon safety. At 40 litres and with three inner pockets, the Ascent 40 Avabag provides enough storage space. The circumferential zipper allows for rapid access to the entire contents of the main compartment. Emergency equipment can be stored in the separate safety compartment so that it can be reached quickly.

This ski touring backpack is equipped with the Avabag airbag system developed by Ortovox: the system weighs only about 690 g, is extremely compact, works without electronics, is removable and can easily be activated again and again without the cartridge attached. This allows for activation training to prepare for quick and correct action in an emergency. The handle can be gripped with any type of glove, and is suitable for both left and right-handed users.

The ascent-oriented avalanche backpack comes with plenty fastenings to attach a rope, your skis, ice axe or hiking poles as well as your sleeping mat and sleeping bag. In addition to safety and packing space, comfort also plays an important role, particularly for multi-day ski excursions: The soft, foamed 3D back system and reinforced straps ensure both stability and comfort. Lightweight yet abrasion resistant materials make the Ortovox Ascent 40 Avabag durable enough for rough terrain and numerous tours.
