Ortovox Ascent 40 Avabag

The Ortovox Ascent 40 Avabag is an avalanche airbag designed for longer ski tours and more demanding trips. It is fitted with Ortovox's own Avabag airbag system which is as light and packable as any on the market. The 40 litre size gives enough room for the equipment required over a longer tour and with three inner pockets there are good options for keeping your kit organised and easily accessible. It features a circumferential zipper on the front which gives excellent access to the main compartment and there's a dedicated separate safety compartment for your emergency equipment.

The Ascent 40 is designed to be comfortable over the course of a long tour with the soft, foamed 3D back system and reinforced straps giving stability and comfort. It has lightweight yet abrasion resistant materials on the outer for durable finish capable of withstanding rough terrain and numerous tours.

As a touring pack it does have a rope attachment as well as the ability to attach larger items, such as a sleeping bag and carry mat, to the outside of the pack with the additional material loops. 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 as well as 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.

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.
