Refillable Airbag System Cartridge

The Mammut Refillable Airbag System Cartridge is the critical element for your Mammut RAS (Removable Airbag System), Protection Airbag System, and older Snowpulse avalanche airbags to work. Once you've filled this empty cartridge to 3000PSI and installed it into your airbag system, it's ready to deploy the buoyant airbag that helps you remain on the surface of an avalanche. For durability, a valve protector has been added, and filling pressure can be controlled via an integrated pressure gauge. The cartridge must be filled after each use at an authorized refill center.

  • Cartridge for Mammut's RAS and Protection Airbag System
  • Refillable aluminum cartridge with or without compressed air
  • Integrated pressure gauge assists with filling

A must have!

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Hopefully will never have to use this system, but it is nice to have the slight peace of mind that this setup is onboard, can hardly feel the weight of the entire setup. Fits great in my Dakine 28L Poacher Pack and also in the Dakine Poacher vest, easy to put in and take out if you have a few different touring setups.

Works as needed

Familiarity:

This is needed for any Mammut avy pack, and with so many refill locations, it's easy to always be sure to stay safe out in the backcountry.

This is a review

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Hope I never have to use it, but it's easy to fill at the scuba shop (why are there even scuba shops in CO?) and it fits in my Mammut pack nicely.

Makes your pack work!

Gotta have this component to make your airbag an airbag! Easy to fill and handle.

Necessity

For for Dakine RAS Poacher Vest. The last and most important piece for you avalanche backpack. Hopefully you live near a scuba shop for refills and hopefully you never need to use it.

Easy to fill

Familiarity:

Compared with other brands this was a breeze to get filled, scuba shop. What I am really liking is the ability to fly with this system as I can empty it and fill it so cost effectively.

Fits perfectly into my Dakine RAS pack. If you have a Mammut RAS Airbag this is the canister you need.

Luckily I haven't had to use it

But better safe than sorry. Fits into any mammut or dakine packs that use mammut's airbag system.

Fits great in the pack.

There was no place in Oregon to fill it, ended up taking it to Canada on a trip, had no problem filling it up there..

Works as it should

Easy to drop off and have it filled at any scuba shop, easy to travel with when empty, just make sure the top is unscrewed so you can show TSA the inside of the canister.

necessary thing

I bought this as a spare canister for work as a heli ski guide. I have a diver cylinder adapter and it allows to to fill the canister myself. Good quality, 3 extra Disc Refill Kit. Be careful!

Easy for traveling

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The compressed air (Mammut / Snowpulse and BCA) systems are great for air travel, especially in North America. As long as the cylinder is empty you can take it on the plane in any piece of baggage you want. It helps to have the head removed so if you do get stopped by TSA they can clearly see that the cylinder is empty. My wife and I flew up to Alaska in the spring an had a pair of these in our carry on. We left them packed in our bags through security and didn't get any questions on them from TSA in either airport. Getting these refilled was easy enough - we found a dive shop in Anchorage that refilled them in about 10 minutes for $10 each. If you are planning on traveling with these and refilling them at your destination, make sure you have a rearming kit as well. When you fire this off, there is a small copper disc and washer that get punctured and need to be replaced. In my experience, most places that have the fitting for refilling Mammut cylinders tend to also keep a couple rearming kits in stock - just make sure you confirm with your shop of choice

Works for me

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Certainly adds weight to the backcountry package, but that is the price of airbags. Was able to get it filled in the remote location of Smithers BC. But note, the fire department there couldn't do it, I had to go the Harley Davidson dealership, who had the correct fitting. I think this was due to the relationship with the outdoors shop in Smithers. So it is possible that locations without a local outdoors shop and familiarity with avalanche air bags might be more problematic. I haven't tried refill in Christchurch, New Zealand yet. Travel was a slight hassle. I always disclosed at check-in. This caused much furrowed brows, erroneous information and wasted time from check-in staff. But it always got through security examination and arrived at destination untouched.

heavy chunk of aluminum

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The item pictured isn't what I received. My unit is apparently the 2.0 snow pulse can, without the plastic guard at the neck. My canister looks like the photo attached. Not that this is a problem, just saying if you order, it might not have the guard. Maybe the guard is no longer required? In the future, they'll be handing these out like condoms, but right now, it's tricky, especially the regulations slapped on the new tech cartridges by Mammut, which is the system I'm after when taking into account the cost of the P.A.S. system and integrated packs. The carbon tanks will make it worthy, but the aluminum is dated scuba tech. No filling stations in my immediate area, have to drive 1 hour to a dive shop. Mammut makes an adapter for fire departments to fill your canister, but again, in my area, the fire department doesn't even fill or check fire extinguishers, nor would they likely have Co2 pressure that exceeds 350 PSI. The Snow Pulse requires 3,000 PSI. That's not a fill you do while having a beer in your garage. Serious pressure. You need a dive shop or a search & rescue group that actually cares about this tech. All the backcountry shops in my area are hands-off with potential compressed air hazards, their general liability probably doesn't cover this type of work, so good luck getting them on board. Called Mammut USA about it, haven't heard back. Any thoughts on nitrogen vs. helium vs. Co2 vs. compressed air?

The

Fire Departments do deal with compressed a lot. They have the ability to fill their own SCBA units. They can definitely fill them. Also the canister you have pictured is the last model. The new one has the protective cap on it. Check youtube, tahoe mountain sports has video reviews of the Mammut with the Mammut rep and he references the new canister.

not where I live....and Mammut is telling me w/out the cap is also the new model
