Airbag Protection System avalanche safety
The Protection Airbag System 3.0 is an avalanche airbag system with a 3D-shaped brightly-colored airbag that deploys protectively around the wearer’s head, neck and chest area when activated. The airbag can therefore also provide protection from mechanical injuries. The new system is safe, easy to use, even lighter and smaller than before and can be installed in all Protection 3.0-compatible backpacks.

Complete protection - trauma protection
Up to 20% (depending on the country and season) of fatalities in avalanches are due to mechanical injuries. With the Protection Airbag System, Mammut® has a solution that can additionally protect against mechanical injuries. The Protection Airbag System protects the head, neck and chest area and thus increases your survival chances in two ways: It provides the best possible protection from burial and from life-threatening trauma injuries.
Carrying comfort of the new Protection Airbags
In the Protection Airbags, we have focused on the construction of the shoulder straps and hip belt: resulting in a significant reduction in the volume and width of the shoulder straps, making them far less bulky, softer and adapted to the natural shape of the body. The backpack sits closely but very comfortably on the back, the load is distributed very effectively and, even when climbing with skis or a snowboard on your back, the avalanche airbags are in no way inferior to other alpine backpacks.
