When you're travelling in the backcountry under your own steam, every gram you save counts. The award winning Ortovox Ascent 30 AVABAG has been constructed with one goal in mind; removing as much unnecessary weight as possible, whilst remaining functional and fit for purpose.
Lightweight construction for efficiency
The Ascent 30 Avabag is constructed using an extremely lightweight, water and abrasion resistant, PU coated 100D ripstop nylon for maximum durability. The precision designed 3D back panel has been constructed to evenly distribute weight between the hip fins, while the padded shoulder straps help to reduce fatigue on longer tours.
Accessible compartments design
The main compartment has a water-resistant zipper with 270° of motion - allowing the bag to be flipped opened for quick and easy access to your necessities. A secondary pocket includes storage sleeves for shovel blade, handle and probes. Diagonal ski carry, as well as snowboard/snowshoe attachments make kit-carrying easy. The pack also has attachment points for an ice axe and ropes and is water bladder/hydration compatible.
Removable Airbag system
Included with the pack is the removeable, AVABAG avalanche airbag system. Designed to be superlight and incredibly compact, it weighs in at 690g, or when combined with the activation canister and backpack, just 2170g. The AVABAG unit is optional so the pack can be used separately when you're staying frontside or heading out in summer.
Please note: Canisters are not included with Avalanche Backpacks.
