Ortovox Ascent 28 S Avabag Kit (Avabag Unit Included)
Lightweight and durable, the Ascent is the lightest pack from the Ortovox Avabag range, making it a comfortable, practical and efficient choice of pack for mountaineers, off-piste skiing or any other remote alpine pursuit.
The Ascent 28 S is the smaller version of the Ascent 30 Avabag Kit. Designed with a shorter back length (36-44cm), this pack also has specially designed straps to help accommodate the female anatomy.
Thanks to the innovative processing system which requires no sewing or additional sealing, and a drastically reduced venturi unit, the ORTOVOX AVABAG UNIT is now one of the lightest airbag systems in the world. Weighing only 690g, the system combines incredible lightweight stripped down design with the highest levels of reliability.
Weighing only 2140g (inc. system and cartridge), the Ascent 28 S Avabag combines safety, efficiency and comfort in one design. Made with abrasion resistant materials such as Nylon 100D Robic Ribstop, which are also extremely light, the Ascent 28 S has been shorn of all non-essential components to ensure the sleekest possible design.
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.
Ortovox Avabag Unit: The Facts
At just 1.8 Liters, and weighing only 690g, the AVABAG is the smallest airbag system worldwide. The unit's small size means it takes up the minimum amount of space in any of the ORTOVOX backpacks, leaving as much room as possible for tools and kit.
The welding techniques used in the production of this unit have the dual function of keeping the size as small as possible at the same time as protecting the unit from any tears or leaks.
The AVABAG unit can be simply and quickly replaced or upgraded, and is compatible with all ORTOVOX AVABAG backpacks.
