The classic among ABS® Base Units has been further optimised and is thinner and lighter than before, bringing the weight closer to the body which makes it more comfortable to wear. The Vario Base 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. The Base Unit is supplied with the flat, lightweight Vario 8 Zip-on, which provides enough space for your emergency equipment. It can be combined with all Vario Zip-ons between 8 L and 45+5 L. 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). Every Base Unit can be equipped with an activation unit made of steel or ultralight carbon.
