Our large-capacity, ultralight ski pack, the Cirque 45 is designed with inspiration from our climbing packs, making it the ultimate tool for serious ski mountaineers, with all of the features needed for technical alpine objectives in a clean and simple design. Compatible with our AvaLung Element (sold separately).
With a 45L capacity, this pack has plenty of room for avalanche gear, daily essentials and larger equipment AND is Avalung-ready, prepared for the Avalung element (sold separately).
The Avalung system is designed to provide the buried skier oxygen in the case of an avalanche by drawing in air from around the pack and supplying it directly to the wearer via a mouthpiece. This function is invaluable for off-piste skiers facing risky or uncertain conditions.
The Cirque 45 comes with back access to the main storage compartment through a rear panel, meaning your gear will always be quickly and easily accessible.
The AvaLung system increases post-avalanche survival time from 15 minutes average survival time with no AvaLung to 58 minutes fresh air supply with Avalung. The average rescue time with an avalanche transceiver is 20 minutes.
Oxygen is pulled from the snowpack through a bivalve intake whilst carbon dioxide is expelled via the exhaust port at the bottom of the pack to prevent contamination of breathable air.
The mouthpiece is mounted on the shoulder for easy access, but should always be kept in the mouth when in particularly risky terrain.
