The Ortovox Ascent 22 Avabag is a lightweight avalanche airbag ideal for day tours. It is fitted with Ortovox's own Avabag airbag system which is as light and packable as any on the market. The 22 litre size gives enough room for your safety gear, an extra layer and some food and drink - all the things you need for a day in the mountains. It features a circular frontal zipper for access to the main compartment.
The Ascent 22 is designed to be comfortable over the course of a long day with the soft, foamed 3D back system and reinforced straps giving stability and comfort by distributing the weight evenly between the hip fins and the lightly padded shoulder straps. It has lightweight yet abrasion resistant materials on the outer for a durable finish capable of withstanding rough terrain and numerous tours. The ski carry is diagonal, using Ortovox's D-Skifix for a secure and balanced fit. It also features ice axe and hiking pole carry, a rope fastening and a fixed helmet net.
The Avabag is removable and can be fitted to any Ortovox Avabag pack. It's worth noting that the stated Ortovox pack sizes take into account the space the airbag takes up, though not the cartridge.
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.
