Maximum safety reserves for day trips or excursions: the Alprider Updraft 22 LW by Vaude is aimed at risk-conscious ski tourers and off-piste skiers, who want the best protection in case of emergency. The avalanche backpack is large enough with a 22 litre volume but remains light and handy.
Vaude gave the backpack an Alpride Airbag. The inflates to a volume of 150 litres and increases the chance of staying near the surface of the avalanche. This makes the rescue work easier and increases chances of survival. Every second counts in an emergency and the search must start immediately, so the Alprider Updraft 22 LW has a separate compartment for emergency equipment. You can keep your shovel, probe etc. separated from the rest of the equipment and at hand when needed! Vaude has also printed an info panel for Alpine emergency situations on the inside. This makes it easier to come to a decision practical if youre on edge.
The Vaude Alprider Updraft 22 LW can be neatly and finely adjusted to the weather. As well as shoulder straps and a hip belt, it also has additional leg loops, as is normal for avalanche backpacks. Skis can be fixed to the outside when transport or for very steep passages. Particularly clever: the ski fastener can be adjusted if necessary without taking off the backpack.
