ABS Vario Ultralight 18

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The bad news: having an ABS airbag pack without a Vario zip-on cover is like ice with no cream. The good news: there are tons of covers to choose from, including the ABS Vario 18 Ultralight, so you never have to eat ice without cream ever again. The best news: the Vario 18 weighs less than a half-gallon of mint chocolate chip and still has special internal attachments for a shovel and probe, a removable mesh pocket that doubles as a helmet net, and ski and snowboard carrying options for easy travel when the skinner becomes a boot pack. Just stash your skins (or snacks) in the easy-access side pockets, slip a hydration bladder into the sleeve, and head out for a day of schralping. The 18 Ultralight is compatible with any ABS Vario base unit, with a simple zip-on design that allows you to customize the size of your pack in seconds so you never have to leave your avy airbag behind.
