Amateur fun, professional hauling.
Mammut's Nirvana Pro 25 Backpack boasts blissful storage options for backcountry skiers. The Nirvana boasts a 25-liter capacity that''s equipped to haul all of your equipment for a half day or longer, and you can access the main compartment from both the front and back of this pack, making it quick and easy to wrangle some snacks even with a snowboard strapped on. Both side or diagonal ski carry options offer the versatility you need in steep couloirs or glaciated traverses.
The U-Frame suspension system efficiently transfers your load for a more well-balanced haul, and the two-layer, EVA back padding delivers a comfortable feel. And, Mammut added a laminated stretch fabric to shed snow off your back in blizzards, which means you don't end up with a saturated or swampy backside.
In addition to its plank-friendly construction, the Nirvana Pro features a waist belt you can remove if your haul doesn't require the extra support. The front pocket accommodates your avy gear, which leaves enough room in the main compartment for your lunch, jacket, and electronics. The hydration system includes an insulated tube cover, so your water doesn't freeze when the temperatures dip below comfortably cool. Not to mention, the pack also carries both your helmet and goggles when you don't need them, and the pocket at the waist doubles as a good spot for sunscreen or lip balm.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
It was time to upgrade my touring pack and I stumbled across the Nirvana pro 25 and knew i had to have it. I've had really good luck with Mammut products in the past, so I knew this would be no different. The organization of this pack is key, where is has special allocations, for your shovel and probe for easy access. The back panel unzips fully for easy access to all your gear and the Ski carry straps are top notch. The back panel sheds snow exceptionally well and the hip belts fit very nicely so it feels like you aren't even wearing a pack during those full day tours. The one thing i wish this pack had was the ability to convert to an avy bag with mammuts airbag system. I love this pack and can't wait to get more use out of it!
