    Ascent 30 Avabag Backpack

    Ortovox's Ascent 30 Avabag Backpack is fully featured and fully equipped for backcountry skiers who prefer rappelling into powdery couloirs than riding a chairlift to the summit. Its Avabag airbag (sold separately) is Ortovox's smallest, lightest airbag yet, and it's completely removable for low-avy days or if you want to move the airbag into a larger Ascent Backpack for bigger tours. The Avabag uses compressed air canisters so you can take it on most airlines, and the pre-tension tool lets you practice without emptying the canister.

    The backpack itself boasts most of the features that backcountry skiers look for. It has external carry systems for skis, snowboards, snowshoes, ice axes, hiking poles, helmets, and ropes to leave room inside for all the standard touring necessities. There's a sleeve inside for hydration reservoirs, as well as a separate compartment for your beacon, probe, and shovel. Ortovox made the pack out of a durable ripstop fabric with a PU coating to shed any snow off the pack, and the back panel, shoulder straps, and waist belt include 3D molded foam for comfort.

    This was the first airbag pack I had and I really like it. Its great for quick missions and day tours. Personally it was a little small for me for days of guiding and teaching avalanche courses and I have since upgraded to the Ascent 40L and love it. The access to the main compartment is awesome, there is a zipper top and bottom so getting the puffy at the bottom of your pack is super easy. I have had skis, ice tools, crampons, and all kinds of stuff in this pack and it carries it well. It's also nice being able to dry fire and practice deploying the airbag without the canister installed.

    My only reason for not giving this pack 5 stars is the lack of internal pockets (which is solved by organizing your stuff into a couple stuff sacks).

    I am a full time, year-round mountain guide and a member of the Ortovox North American team I received this gear to test and use.
