Ortovox Ascent 30 Avabag (Avabag Not Included)
Ideally suited to long ski tours, the ASCENT 30 AVABAG has a capacity of 30 liters of usable volume for your equipment – from safety equipment to a hydration system to a change of clothes and a snack, everything has its place!
In order to achieve the low total weight, the pack uses EXTREMELY LIGHT yet ABRASION-RESISTANT MATERIALS such as Nylon 100D Robic Ripstop, as well as avoiding the use of any non-essential components. This efficiency of design is what makes the Ascent 30 such a popular choice with mountaineers long distance skiers.
However, the design also guarantees a high level of comfort when worn, as the TUV certified foam 3D back system ensures the weight of the pack is evenly distributed between the padded shoulder straps and the broad hip fins.
The circular frontal zipper provides quick access to equipment, the diagonal ski attachment, ice axe holder and rope fastener, which are all very easy to use.
This product can be combined with the Ortovox Avabag Unit, a simple, compact and easy to use Avabag system, to ensure maximum safety whilst skiing
