Product Info

The Mammut Light Protection Airbag Backpack (Set with Airbag) is Mammut's minimalist Protection Airbag offering, with a 30 liter capacity but weighing in at only 2120 grams. The Protection style airbag wraps around the user's head and neck when deployed, offering impact protection in additon to the floatation function. This top loader backpack offers everything you would expect from a good one-day touring backpack. Very comfortable to carry, and with attachments for skis or snowboard and dual ice axe loops, the Mammut Light Protection Airbag Backpack literally has your back (and head and neck) covered.

Product Details

Airbag

Head on Top TechnologyThe "head on Top Technology" ensures that in most cases the wearer comes to rest in a seated position with their back facing down the slope and their head on the surface of the snow. This is the ideal position since the respiratory tracts are not covered by the snow, thus reducing the risk of suffocation. The background to the Head on Top Technology is the special shape and positioning of the airbag. The main buoyancy volume of the airbag is located around and above the wearer's head.

Protection Airbag SystemThe Mammut® Protection Airbag System is the newly developed version of the well-known Snowpulse® Lifebag system. The special shape of the airbag and its clever integration in different backpacks are unique features. The shape of the airbag protects the wearer's head, neck and chest area from mechanical injuries and in the event of an avalanche ensures an optimal position by keeping the wearer's head and upper body on the surface. The Protection Airbag can therefore not only help to prevent complete burial, it also offers additional protection from mechanical injuries. In addition to the safety features, Mammut have succeeded in designing a completely "removable" airbag system. This allows the user to swap one system between several backpacks, allowing for him or her to always select the most suitable backpack for the relevant application.

Snowpulse® Mammut Airbag TechnologyThe functioning of the avalanche airbag is based on the physical principle of "inverse segregation." This sorting effect means that in an equally moving mass of particles, the smaller particles gravitate to the bottom while the larger ones rise to the surface. The avalanche airbag increases the wearer's wearer's volume, significantly boosting this effect. The avalanche airbag can therefore help to keep the wearer's body on the surface of the snow and thus prevent complete burial. The size and bright color of the avalanche airbag assists with rapid location.

Trauma ProtectionAround 20% (varies depending on country and season) of deaths in avalanches are caused by trauma. These are mechanical injuries incurred as the victim is swept along in the avalanche. Trauma occurs with even greater frequency in areas below the tree line. These injuries are often in the head, neck and chest area. It is precisely these very sensitive areas of the body which are protected by the special shape of the airbag.
