The Mammut Light Protection 30 is a lighter weight avalanche airbag pack using the Mammut protection system. Though airbag packs are by nature quite heavy the Light Protection is 1200g for the pack and 1890g including the airbag. For the features and protection offered this is a pretty good compromise.
The Light Protection 30 is aimed at tourers who really wish they could have an airbag but are put off by the weight penalty. 30 litres is a good size for day touring and with careful planning hut to hut tours are also possible with this size. It has a classic top loading lid with easy access side zip plus all the regular features you would expect (list below).
The 3.0 Protection Airbag differs from the Removable Airbag in that it offers much more protection as when inflated it expands around the side of your head and over your shoulders. It does cost and weight a little more than the Removable Airbag. Both the Protection and Removable airbag types can be removed from the pack. For information on how avalanche airbags work in general and the differences between the brands, please read Avalanche Airbag Information.
Travelling with compressed gas is restricted. As airbags become more common the airlines with ski routes are getting more used to dealing with them. Please read our Guide to Flying with Airbags and Refilling them.
Buying an airbag is a massive purchase so if you would like to talk to us about it and need any information not provided here then please give us a call to discuss. Contact details at the bottom of the page.
