The Ascent 22 Avabag Kit is a very light weight avalanche backpack by Ortovox. Made of high-quality, robust and light materials this backpack offers full equipment and excels also on long and challenging ski tours. The integrated AVABAG avalanche airbag system is relatively small and lightweight. It requires a space of not more than 1.8 l and can be removed if necessary. The backpack itself is designed to fit well to the body. The contact back with an expanded 3D back system is both robust and lightweight. It additionally ensures a good load distribution and a comfortable fit. The inside of the backpack is easily accessible by a circular zip. A separate front compartment provides space for smaller items. All outer zips are also water-repellent. Useful are also the numerous attachments. If necessary, skis may be diagonally attached to the backpack. Like this they are always well secured and don't disturb during walking and climbing passages. Ice axes, poles, snowshoes and snowboards can be attached to the Ascent 22 Avabag Kit without any problem as well. Another point in its favor: The backpack is provided with a helmet net. It can be supplemented with a hydration system which is especially useful on long downhill ski-runs and fast touring.
