First look at the AVABAG from Ortovox at Outdoor Retailer

by Ben Nelson

Ortovox, a German company, provides the world’s most sophisticated protection systems for the mountains. Their mission is to promote safety and protection; outfitting your whole system: baselayer, backpack, beacon and education.

Greg Mears, Ortovox’s Inside Sales Assistant, walked us through the AVABAG, which deploys an avalanche airbag. One of the amazing features of this product is the activation training. You can practice activating the airbag without a cartridge attached, so that you can be well prepared for an emergency situation.
