The Mammut Light RAS 3. 0 Airbag Backpack is spacious enough to hold all your gear and other essentials on a full-day tour in the backcountry, but it's such a featherweight that it makes travel a breeze on long skins or rapid-fire yo-yo laps.The Removable Airbag System (RAS) uses a large square airbag that deploys in a hot second (well, three) to help prevent burial in the event of a slide by decreasing your mass to surface area ratio. The airbag also surrounds your head and core to protect you from blunt force trauma. A safety leg loop keeps the pack in place so the airbag deploys in the correct position, even if you're tumbling, and the bag's bright orange color makes it easier for rescuers to spot you. An easy-access front pocket allows you to reach your beacon and probe quickly if one of your partners gets caught in a slide.At just two pounds, the RAS system is superlight, but it's easy to pop out of the pack if you're wearing it inbounds or during the summer months. This drops the pack's weight to just over two pounds and opens up a little more of the 30L of storage capacity, so you can haul extra gear. Outside, the Light RAS features a diagonal ski carrier and snowboard carrier and two ice-axe attachments to keep your gear neat, secure, and easy to access. Use your hydration system with this pack for easy thirst-quenching on the go and cinch down the sides when you're traveling light to keep it close to your back, stable, and streamlined.This airbag system is NOT a guarantee that you will survive an avalanche; get educated, get the right tools, travel with partners, and be smart out there.
