Thanks to the innovative processing system which requires no sewing or additional sealing, and a drastically reduced venturi unit, the Ortovox Avabag is one of the lightest airbag systems in the world. Weighing only 690g, the system combines an incredible lightweight stripped-down design with the highest levels of reliability.
The Ortovox Ascent 22 avabag is the lightest pack from the Ortovox Avabag range, making it a comfortable, practical and efficient choice pack for mountaineers, off-piste skiing or any other remote alpine pursuit.
The Ortovox Ascent 22 avabag 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 3D foam back system is simultaneously Light and Stable. This back system Distributes Load Evenly between the hip fins and the slightly padded shoulder straps.
To determine your back length, use a tape measure to measure yourself from the top of your hip bone to the very top of your back just before the neck. Use the size guide image in the image gallery to calculate your size.
