We have been loath to carry airbag packs since they’ve been so heavy. Enter the Mammut Ultralight with the Removable Airbag 3.0 system. Without the canister the pack is nearly race-weight, and it comes in under 2kg when all topped up. That means you may not have to sacrifice much speed for the additional avalanche safety. The compressed air system is the 3rd iteration from Mammut, a proven design that has been credited with saving lives in the field. It uses aluminum cartridges that are refillable in a ski or SCUBA shop. If you’re susceptible to temptation on powder days, yet like to keep things light, check out the Mammut Ultralight Airbag pack.

  • R.A.S. 3.0 is a dependable compressed gas airbag that is light and packs down small.
  • Back padding is removable which means you can make a nice on-snow seat out of it.
  • Airbag system is removable to lighten the pack on lower avalanche danger days.
  • Diagonal ski carry system and additional ice axe holder are key for long booters.
  • Side-compression straps let you adjust the volume and fit if you’re going light.
  • Full zip into the back of the pack helps access items stored near the bottom.
  • Deployment handle on the airbag is adjustable for variances in skier height.
  • Pack is hydration system compatible with inner loops and a straw exit port.
  • Removable airbag can be used in more than a half dozen Mammut packs.

Please note cartridges are sold separately.

Bottom Line Ultralight floatation
by Jesse M (used product regularly)
I have skied with this airbag all winter and love it. It is super light and very comfortable to carry on long days with the weight of the airbag barely noticeable. It carries everything I need for a day of extended skimo training- spare set of skins, spare water bottle, puffy, wind breaker top and bottom, spare gloves, repair kit, InReach, and typical avy gear plus saw.

The one thing I don't like about the pack is the rear entry feature. I get it but it is a little tough to get out your avy tools without spilling the pack or filling it with snow. I have rigged my shovel, probe and saw to the outside and that has made it much more convenient to access (so I use it!). I also had a local seamstress sew a strip of webbing across the plain (non-airbag handle) shoulder strap so I could rig a water bottle holder there which was a great upgrade.

One other minor negative is that the back panel doesn't breathe at all so it can get pretty moist under heavy exertion.

I just want to repeat that this thing is super comfortable to wear- I never want to take it off!

As to whether it will save my life- I hope I never get to review that aspect of this pack. However, I have made sure I practice with it regularly using the supplied dummy load that screws in in place of the air canister. It seems very easy to deploy and the handle is easy to grab even with gloves. It stows well and has not gotten snagged on trees even in a few accidentally tight situations!

Overall, for such a light and small pack , I love it and will continue to make it my go to pack in all but spring conditions.

Question from Lisa
Just come with everything? I'm just confused on what comes with his backpack. Is it a pack with the airbag system included?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Lisa! So, at $139.95 you get the backpack (a pretty awesome one at that), but with no functional airbag features. If you select the Airbag 3.0 then you'll have to select the filled canister for it to get to you as a fully functional airbag. You can select an empty canister but you will have to get it filled by a local filler-upper station (Scuba shops can do this as long as you have the Mammut Aribag Adapter and Mammut Cartridge Refill Kit), some authorized dealers can do this as well without the Airbag adapter, just depends on who you're working with. Otherwise, to save yourself some hassle, you can just get a full canister for a few extra dollars.

Question from Aaron
Does the listed weight with airbag in the specs also include the weight of a filled canister? (e.g., what is the total weight ready to deploy)
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Aaron. We just weighed it. Total weight, ready to deploy with a full canister and an airbag, is an impressive 2000g. Empty pack weight with no airbag or canister is an even more impressive 520g.
