Lateral ventilation channels and the back plate with its numerous ventilation openings provide active and comfortable ventilation.

M.A.S.S. - MODULAR AIRBAG SAFETY SYSTEM
We place trust in ist system partner's 28 years of ABS expertise and ist tried and tested twinbag technology. The versatility of the system is both innovative and unique. Just a few motions and only three minutes is all it takes to install the M.A.S.S. unit into any of the five backpack models. If conditions allow, installing the airbag system can be entirely avoided. In such cases the backpacks are up to 1880 grams lighter and gain several liters in additional volume - making them suitable for a broader spectrum of uses. What's more, the adjustment options prove just as versatile as the system itself. The release grip can be in-stalled for either right or left-handed users and ist height and angle can be freely adjusted. A stowable aluminum bracket protects the grip from unintended release.
