If you use an airbag pack and you frequently find yourself mining lift-accessed backcountry, the ABS Vario 15 Zip-On Cover is ideal for you. It is designed to easily zip on to the ABS Vario Base Unit, and its low profile design fits on the lift easily and weighs you down less on the downhill. Even with its small 915 cu in volume, there is still plenty of space to store your backcountry essentials for day touring or hiking.
The pack is suitable for one- or two-plankers with a diagonal ski mount and a snowboard/snowshoe mount, and is ready for extreme terrain with an ice ax mount. Your avalanche gear is always close at hand in the easy-access emergency compartment, and an SOS label with international emergency numbers tells you who to call if things go bad. Other essential backcountry features packed into the Vario 15 are hydration compatibility and a tuck-away helmet mount, which is really nice to have on long, hot uphills. The main compartment had an extra large access zip for convenient access, and a separate valuables pocket gives you a place to put the small stuff you cant afford to lose.
