Lightweight, spacious ski touring backpack with avalanche airbag.
Ortovox's new ASCENT 40 AVABAG has been designed for ski tours lasting several days and demanding skiing excursions, and it completes their AVABAG ski touring line. As with the smaller models, the focus here is upon safety – which the ASCENT 40 AVABAG achieves with ease and efficiency.
At 40 liters and with three inner pockets, the ASCENT 40 AVABAG provides enough storage space for multi-day ski tours and ski excursions. The circumferential zipper on the front 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.
For demanding ski tours, a rope can be attached quickly and easily to the ascent-oriented avalanche airbag. Sleeping mats and sleeping bags can be quickly attached to the outside using the additional material loops. In steeper terrain, your skis can be attached securely and diagonally to the avalanche backpack using the D-skifix. Of course, there is also an ice axe and hiking pole fastening, and a fixed helmet net. The aluminum locking clasp, safety leg strap and chest strap with signal whistle and emergency card all come as standard.
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 ASCENT 40 AVABAG durable enough for rough terrain and numerous tours.
The ASCENT 40 AVABAG has everything the NAKED SHEEP needs on multi-day ski tours and demanding ski excursions, and it leaves unnecessary weight at home.
This light airbag system weighs just 690 grams* and is thus sensationally 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 advantages of the AVABAG system at a glance:
- Extremely light and sensationally compact airbag system
