The Ortovox Ascent 28S Avabag Kit is an avalanche backpack with integrated airbag system. Since its back part is shorter than that of the standard model, this backpack is especially suitable for women and small persons.
This backpack combines light weight with robustness, safety and wearing comfort. It is made of extremely abrasion-resistant fabrics and comes up with security-related features such as whistle, LVS compartment, emergency signal information and a leg loop (for securing the backpack at the wearing person). The back system of compressed foam ensures a nice wearing comfort and the waist belt keeps the backpack tightly on the body thus preventing it from swinging during downhill tours. The handling in cold temperatures and the access in the case of an emergency are not a problem since all small parts can be used with gloves and the backpack is provided with a circular zip. Of course, all pieces of the equipment important for ski mountaineering can be attached on the outside. The core inside of this backpack is a 640 g light Avabag system with a minimum pack size and a seam-free laminated airbag which is inflated within seconds by means of the deployment handle via the mechanics and the cartridge (not included). The ergonomically shaped handle can be stored away in the shoulder strap. Thanks to its compact construction the release system is resistant to cold and merely susceptible to damage.
The Ascent 28 S Avabag Kit is your lightweight partner providing safety also beyond secured paths!
