Ortovox has expanded the limits of versatility with the Tour 30+7 ABS Ready airbag backpack!. The ultimate in versatile design, this women's Ortovox Tour 30+7 ABS Ready Backpack is ready for every adventure with expandable capacity, plenty of attachment options and an exceptional fit. With its flawless comfort, the TOUR ABS is a real hot number. This ski-touring backpack shines with the new VENT-O-FLEX back system. An O-shaped frame distributes weight evenly between the shoulders and hips, thus relieving the back muscles. Lateral ventilation channels and the back plate with numerous ventilation openings provide active and comfortable ventilation. VARIO-SPACE is the name of the new, variable volume system. Opening a central zipper adds more than 20% additional volume, making the Tour ABS Backpack ideal for even the very longest of ski tours. Just like the FREE RIDER ABS, TOUR ABS models also feature the multi-functional X-SKIFIX ski fastening system. The system allows skis to be fastened in different ways, either diagonally or crossed, using the locking aluminum clasps. It can also be used to fasten snowboards and snowshoes. As you'd expect of a ski tour backpack, in addition to numerous classic features, the TOUR ABS also has a separate map compartment, as well as one for ski skins and crampons. Removable Airbag ready for the M.A.S.S.- Modular Airbag Safety System and the ABS Avalanche Airbag Activation Unit which are sold separately. Ortovox places trust in their system partner's 28 years of ABS airbag expertise and its tried and tested Twinbag technology. This 'Ready' pack is ready for you to install the M.A.S.S. airbag system. The versatility of the system is both innovative and unique. Just a few motions and only three minutes is all it takes to install the M.A.S.S. unit into any of the five backpack models. If conditions allow, installing the airbag system can be entirely avoided. In such cases the backpacks are up to 1880 grams lighter and gain several liters in additional volume - making them suitable for a broader spectrum of uses. What's more, the adjustment options prove just as versatile as the system itself. The release grip can be installed for either right or left-handed users and its height and angle can be freely adjusted. A stowable aluminum bracket protects the grip from unintended release. Camera/phone pocket. Gear loops. Airbag inside. Locking clasp (Hip belt). Safety leg strap. Vent-O-Flex. Vario-Space. Compartment for skins and crampons. Map compartement. Water-resistant zippers.
