Hot Winter Gear: Avalanche Bag
Mammut RIDE Airbag R.A.S.
Mammut's new RIDE Airbag R.A.S. (removable airbag system) isn't just an safety device—it's a convenience. Unlike most avalanche pack setups, the 150-liter balloon in this one only displaces about two liters of volume, leaving you the space you need for a comfortable backcountry load. Convenience #2: The entire system can be removed and transferred into a larger or smaller compatible pack (choose from 11 sizes).
$680 for 22-liter pack with balloon
$700 for 30-liter pack with balloon
Air cylinder, $175
