Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Skis, boots, poles. Helmet, goggles, gloves. Beacon, shovel, probe. There are some things you don't head into the mountains without, and it's time to update your list to include the Mammut Ride RAS Backpack. Airbag technology has been proven to save lives, and when it's also as light, functional, and easy to use as the Ride' Well, you'd have to have a really good reason to leave it behind.

The Removable Airbag System by Mammut is a removable avalanche airbag system based on a square airbag that deploys behind the wearers head. It allows the user to independently install the system in a removable airbag-compatible backpack and remove it as required. He or she can therefore use the backpack both with the airbag system (e.g. when freeriding) and without (e.g. for a day on secured pistes). It also allows the user to always select the backpack best suited to the specific purpose.
