Product Descriptions
Backcountry Description: The overwhelming majority of avalanche victims are caught in slides that they themselves trigger, often without realizing it until it's too late. Within a single second, an entire slope can be in motion, and the ABS Vario 30 Backpack can be the difference between ending up underneath a pile of avalanche debris and staying on top of it. With a quick pull of the handle, the ABS system quickly inflates a pair of airbags from the side of the pack, giving you 170 liters of additional volume which improves your ability to rise to the top of moving debris and to be seen once it's come to a stop. ABS's system provides two major benefits that other airbags don't: the redundancy of dual air bladders and the resulting horizontal glide position, which helps your feet, legs, and torso end up closer to the surface, making it easier to self-rescue or for others to spot you.
