Airbags, contrary to their name, are not made of air, and thus are not known to be the lightest of protective systems. This abundance of extra heft, therefore, has traditionally left many airbags out of the quivers of those seeking to put in the biggest vertical days. Thankfully, the good folks at Arva realized the need and created the Tour 25 UL. This airbag is light on weight but not functionality and still offers the same protective qualities their heavier brethren are known for. The 18L of usable space provides room for the must-have essentials, while the outside can accommodate skis, a split board, or even snowshoes. For when those far-flung adventures turn steep, the Reactor 25 can accommodate two ice axes while the daisy chain loops pair seamlessly with the Arva helmet holder. If you value the protective qualities of an airbag but have been dissuaded in the past due to the weight, then step into the warm, protective embrace of the Tour UL 25.
