The essential pack. The new Airbag 3.0 system means that our most compact avalanche airbag just got even lighter and more comfortable, while leaving enough space for everything you need for freeriding.
The Removable Airbag System 3.0 is an avalanche airbag system based on a square, brightly-colored airbag that deploys behind the wearer’s head in seconds. The new system is safe, easy to use, even lighter and smaller than before and can be installed in all Removable 3.0-compatible backpacks.
Safety has never been so light!
With the Airbag System 3.0, we have succeeded in developing an airbag system that is reliable, but at the same time so small and light that you will barely notice it on long ski tours or out freeriding. The carrying system is now even more comfortable and the clever features in our backpack range convince ski tourers and freeriders alike. The compressed gas technology is, in our opinion, still the best solution, as the system is used continuously in mountain environments and needs to operate reliably regardless of temperature.
Carrying Comfort: Feel the difference!
In the past, airbag backpacks meant compromises in terms of carrying comfort. Now even smaller, lighter and better integrated in the backpack than ever before, our Airbag System 3.0 means there is no longer any excuse for going out in powder terrain without an airbag. Throughout the entire backpack line, we have paid particular attention to the fit and the shoulder straps.
Complete flexibility and a huge selection
As before, our avalanche airbags still give you the option of removing the airbag system from the backpack and installing it in another compatible backpack. This allows you to select the right backpack each time for your chosen activity, or use the backpack for climbing or hiking in summer. We have simplified and improved the installation and removal of the system to make this step even easier for you. Our backpack range covers the full spectrum, from a slim 15 liter powder pack for pure freeride days through to
a 45 liter load-bearer for multi-day hikes.
Up to 20% (depending on the country and season) of fatalities in avalanches are due to mechanical injuries. With the Protection Airbag System, Mammut® has a solution that can additionally protect against mechanical injuries. The Protection Airbag System protects the head, neck and chest area and thus increases your survival chances in two ways: It provides the best possible protection from burial and from life-threatening trauma injuries.
Always ready in an emergency: any condition ready
The avalanche airbag is a piece of safety equipment that needs to work with 100% certainty and reliability in an emergency – irrespective of weather, temperature and external pressure. Only pressure cartridges offer precisely the reliability of a dependable energy store over a period of years. This technology also guarantees a very high initial pressure to unfold the airbag reliably even in situations of external loading. Our focus in the latest development was on making the system even more user-friendly and further reducing maintenance.
Initial pressure: 300 bar Inflation time: 3 sec Filling volume: 150 l Application range: -30° + 40° C
Inflation System 3.0
The Inflation System 3.0 describes the component used to deploy the airbag. The system activates the deployment mechanism which opens the pressure cartridge with a pin and fills the airbag. The integrated air volume amplifier also sends ambient air to the airbag in addition to the gas stored in the pressure cartridge.
One of our objectives for the new development was to bring the air volume amplifier and deployment mechanism together in a single housing in order to save space and weight. The inflation system is reliable, low-maintenance and extremely user-friendly: just screw the cartridge in and you’re ready to go!
Deployment Handle 3.0
In an emergency situation, deployment of the airbag needs to be fast and intuitive. Studies have shown that in an extreme situation, many users are overchallenged and do not manage to activate the airbag. Our new
deployment handle is more intuitive to operate and is also height-adjustable to allow it to be adapted to the wearer’s body height.
The deployment handle is now a bright orange color to make it even more visible. There is no change to the tried-and-tested „T” shape of our deployment handle. The handle can be folded to allow compact storage in the shoulder strap.
The Airbag Ballon 3.0
The airbag balloon is the buoyancy device of the avalanche airbag and its volume can help reduce the burial depth or prevent complete burial. Since the balloon is exposed to the full force of the avalanche, as well as
collisions with trees, shrubs or stones in some cases, it needs to be extremely robust. However, at the same time it also needs to be small and light enough to ensure it takes up as little space as possible in the
We have therefore completely revised our airbag using production technologies from the automotive industry. As the airbag is also a significant aid when searching for people who have been partially buried, we have changed the color of the airbag balloon. Neon orange is intended to make it easier to spot even in poor visibility.
