The Mammut Pro X Removable Airbag Pack 3.0 is a top of the line avalanche airbag. It is used to help reduce the severity of avalanche hazards and improve your safety margin if potentially caught in an avalanche. Airbags are becoming commonplace as a necessary/life-saving piece of avalanche safety gear, and Mammut is leading the field in this specific arena of product development.
The Mammut Pro X comes equipped with the proprietary Removable Airbag System (R.A.S) 3.0. The 3.0 system is an update that improves in both airbag functionality and while also shaving overall weight. The Pro X pack has a 25 liter capacity, making it a perfect single day touring pack. It the option for both diagonal ski carry or vertical snowboard carry. The interior of the pack includes a separate avalanche safety equipment pocket, fleece-lined goggle pocket, and full zipper access to the main compartment. The exterior of the pack features lateral compression straps, a detachable hip belt with a zippered pocket, and an integrated helmet carry. The Mammut R.A.S features a refillable aluminum canister that has a gauge to properly display the canister's pressure level. All of these added features are designed to make this a great single day backcountry pack, and all the while only weighing in at 2590 grams (filled canister included).
Traveling in avalanche terrain presents inherent risk, and our job as backcountry travelers is to minimize that risk as best we can. An avalanche airbag is a great way to help with that cause - with the Mammut Pro X being a very user-friendly and reliable choice.
