Protection Airbag System
The Mammut P.A.S. is the newly developed version of well-known Snowpulse Lifebag System. The special shape of the airbag and its clever integration in different backpacks are unique features. The shape of the airbag protects wearer's head, neck, and chest area from injuries and ensures optimal position by keeping wearer's head and upper body on the surface.
In addition, Mammut has succeeded in designing a completely removable airbag system. This allows users to swap one system between several backpacks. Important: The Protection Airbag System cannot be installed in a Removable Airbag System Backpack! All Airbag Packs are sold Without the air cartridge and must be purchased separately.
Airbag System Function
Both airbag systems work according to the same principle. The individual components of the airbag are identical. The only difference is the shape of the balloon and the attachment in the backpack. Pulling the deployment handle activates the deployment mechanism. The mechanism opens the pressure cartridge and the released gas flows through the Venturi valve into the airbag. The Venturi effect also draws ambient air into the airbag. The gas in the cartridge generates 150L of air into the airbag. Deployment takes about 3 seconds.
