It has a comfortable padded hip strap and ergonomically shaped shoulder straps, making it easy to carry even when the bag is fully packed. The activation handle is height-adjustable and can also be optimally adapted to left-handed users. It can be combined with all Vario Zip-ons between 8L and 45+5L. All ABS® Base Units are adapted to the huge impact of an avalanche. The carrying system, which comprises the hip strap, chest strap and leg strap, meets the TÜV criteria for use under extreme conditions (PPE Directive 89/686/EEC).
