The ABS Vario 15L Airbag Pack provides you with all the space that you need for freeriding and singe-day tours, and comes packed with the tried and tested ABS TwinBag system that is TÜV (German Technical Control Board) certified to withstand the enormous forces that occur during an avalanche. The Vario 15L allows you explore the backcountry while reducing the risks associated with avalanches. You can't control the mountain, but you can increase your safety on it. FILLED BASE UNIT INCLUDED.
ABS TwinBag System In the event of an avalanche, deployment of an airbag system helps the victim stay higher up in the debris, so they are more likely to come to rest on the surface than buried deep down. ABS's TwinBag system deploys two independent airbags on either side of the bag, providing 170 L for increased surface area and insurance against system failure.
The cartridge contains only non-hazardous, non-flammable gases found inside the atmosphere at an internal pressure of 330 bar.
Fill and outlet valves are located on both airbags to suck the ambient air into the airbag automatically when the ABS TwinBag system is activated.
Modern pyrotechnic-pneumatic activation for maximum speed and reliability
Hip strap with buckle pocket
Dedicated emergency compartment for instant access to shovel and probe
Interior valuables pocket
Daisy chain on the side
ABS Carrying System Shoulder strap, hip strap, chest strap, and leg strap all meet the TÜV (German Technical Control Board) requirements for extreme operational guidelines.

80 kg load capacity
Height adjustable chest strap

Ski, snowboard, ice axe and helmet carry systems
The Vario Base Unit allows you to interchange different exterior packs.
Warning Wearing an airbag backpack is no guarantee of survival in an avalanche. Backcountry travelers are highly advised to educate themselves in snow stability assessment, route finding, and companion rescue and carry all of the conventional avalanche gear in addition to the airbag.
Used Cartridges Spent cartridges may only be refilled by ABS®; after deployment you should return the empty cartridge to an authorized dealer or ABS® where you will receive a credit toward the purchase of a full cartridge. Activation handles should be replaced at the same time.
