Among the lightest weight removable airbag systems available, the Mammut Light Removable 3.0 is sized appropriately for most day tours and is the lightest airbag pack in the 30-liter volume range. This versatile and functional pack wins a Top Pick award for Best Light Airbag Pack in our review. Many backcountry tourers are willing to spend a few hundred dollars to save ounces on skis, boots, or bindings, but with the Light Removable you spend a little less than average and save a pound or more vs other balloon-pack models. You'll obviously cut a few bells and whistles, but nothing in the way of primary pack functionality for comfort on the up or performance on the down.
