Holds more than just the essentials.
When you want enough room for all your safety equipment, a lunch, and a puffy, grab the Mammut Nirvana Pro 35 Pack. Its 35-liter capacity can handle your equipment plus some extras, and the U-Frame suspension system transfers your load for unbelievable comfort while you trek over those snowy slopes. A two-layer EVA back padding also delivers comfort, and Mammut added a laminated stretch fabric to shed snow off your back in blizzards. You can access the main compartment from both the front and back of this pack, making it quick and easy to get snacks even with a snowboard strapped on. Both side or diagonal ski carry options give you the versatility you love.
The Nirvana Pro features a waist belt you can remove if you don't need the extra support. Stuff your avy gear in the front pocket to leave room in the main compartment for your lunch, jacket, and electronics. Its hydration system includes an insulated tube cover so your water doesn't freeze out there. The pack also carries both your helmet and goggles when you don't need them, and the pocket at the waist gives a good spot for sunscreen, lip balm, and a camera. You're ready for any winter adventure heading your way this season with straps for ice axes and trekking poles and gear loops at the waist.

Bringing back the good times
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This Bag is perfect for both day and muti day tours. The Nirvana Pro 35 is extensively equipped being able to hold either Snowshoes, Snowboard or Skies both in a lateral or diagonal carry system. An ice axe or poles can also be attached to the outside of the bag. There is a separate safety equipment compartment on the outer side, with plenty of room for shovel, probe, saw and snow study kit, as well as a inside zipper pocket for an emergency kit. The safety compartment also has a safety info / check list printed on the back wall. This is very helpful if you are forget full like my self. The Pro 35 also has a convenient padded goggle pocket located on the top of the bag and a storable helmet carry system. There is a large back opening with room for the essential plus much more, this compartment can also be reached from a top opening. I really liked how comfortable this bag feels with the thermo molded back panel and how well it is able to handle a full load with the help of the U shaped aluminum frame. The padded hip belts can be removed and have a perfect size pocket for a leatherman or your first snack. If your looking for a larger size bag that you can still rip in I would highly recommend the Mammut Nirvana Pro 35.

Beats all predecessors
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I already have a Mammut Nirvana Pro 35, and just ordered another one. That should speak for it. When I really like a piece of equipment, I buy a duplicate because by the time I would need to replace it, it would likely be out of production. The pack hits a perfect compromise between light weight and capacity. It offers all features you can ask for in a ski mountaineering pack, but is also wonderful a summer pack for long day trips.
Nirvana in action!
Tons of Room!
The more I get into the backcountry, the more I appreciate a good pack. Anything that helps keep me organized and not lose things is always appreciated!
I've only used the Nirvana pack for day trips, but this pack is spacious enough to take on a longer, overnight tour.
The compartments and pockets make it foolproof for keeping things in place. The front pocket is where avy gear is stored and has a checklist printed to make sure you have all your safety gear. My Mammut Alugator Shovel compacts perfectly and there is a probe sleeve. I store my skins in this pocket between laps so my other gear stays dry.
The main pocket, which has back panel access, has a ton of room for all my gear and food and even fits my helmet. The only thing that doesn't fit in here are my poles which are a little too long. There's a designated pocket for first aid gear with a mesh pocket above great for snacks.
The strap system on the back makes it easy to store anything that wont fit inside (like my dang poles)! The waist strap has a small storage pocket on one side and a gear loop for all the crazy mountaineers on the other. The shoulder straps have small pockets too.
As far as fit goes, I'm 5'7'' and 130 lbs with a shorter torso and this pack is a little long for me. The waist straps land a little low. The support of this pack is amazing, and if adjusted correctly, a lot of weight can be carried comfortably.
The only complaint I have is that there is no external helmet sleeve and I haven't figured out a good way to rig a system to keep it secure when skinning. So far I've been able to store it inside, but for longer trips this could be more of an issue. Also, the torso strap pockets are a little small and don't fit a phone.
Overall this pack is well-made (did I mention the zippers are burly and great quality), well though-out, and make it easy for me to keep my things straight!
Back Panel View
The back panel access to this pack makes it easy to keep your things in order without having to dig too deep. It unzips to the gear pocket making the transition from tour to downhill mode a lot quicker.
The back of the pack also makes a great lunch seat when it's zipped!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
this is a new favorite of mine. i have a short torso, but it's very comfortable to wear. some other packs i have issues with the frame being too close to my head. the back panel access is ideal in the cold when i need to fish something out and gives optimal visualization of the gear inside. pretty much every zipper can be operated with thick gloves (i wear black diamond guide glove from a few years back) i didn't think my goggles would fit that pocket because it looks more like something for sunglasses, but they definitely fit. i have not put a bladder in it yet?. but mostly because i don't' have a bladder that small. it's a long narrow sleeve and below it says a 2L bladder but mine won't fit. i don't have a bladder this size or shape. Mammut makes some of the best stuff around, so you just can't go wrong. this is a great winter day pack!

I am stickler when it comes to materials choices and manufacturer quality, and this Mamamut bag is as good as it gets. It has it all in my opinion; style for town, toughness for mountain, quality components in every corner of the product, excellent design of features and a well though-out compartments.
I have not long had this and will look forward to giving a second review after I put it through its paces, but can assure anyone that is considering this item - it will be a hard task to buy a different bag that will out do this masterpiece!
What are the exact dimensions of the backpack, would it fit as cabin bag in an airplane?
Dimensions are 20 x 12.5 x 9.5 inches. You should have no problems using this bag as a carry on for the airlines.
what hydration bladder fits this pack? The bladder hook is in a skinny sleeve on the side of the main compartment. None of the bladders i have work with the Pack.
No answer, but am trying to figure this out myself. It's long and narrow, so I've been thinking perhaps a platypus 1 litter may fit. Have you found something that works?
any idea how well this will compress when not full? Some backs are known to compress very nicely when not full, but I haven't heard anything about the Nirvana Pro 25 or 35
it's pretty flat when empty...
will the bca 300 probe fit in the avy...
will the bca 300 probe fit in the avy pocket?(what are the dimensions of the avy gear pocket?)
The Mammut Nirvana Pro 35 Pack is 20.5 inches in length and the gear pocket runs nearly the whole length of the pack. The BCA Stealth 300 Probe is 19 inches. So you should be able to fit it in, especially if you angle it in the pocket.
Last years Nirvana Pro pack had an internal...
Last years Nirvana Pro pack had an internal hanging pocket for holding a hydration system or whatever water bladder you want to use. Is this pocket included in this years model?
I have not seen this years model personally, but the description still states that the bag is hydration compatible, and 99% of the time that means there is a hanging bladder sleeve to accompany the rest of the features for easy bladder use.
hi, yes! it has the pocket. mine just arrived tonight and i have been going over all of its yummy quality features. the bladder pocket is probably good for a two-litre max bladder, it is zipped and has a hanger velcro loop, its quite deep.
