I have one season under my belt in the backcountry. The pack has shown no wear points and the air bag system still works perfectly well. I haven't seen any issues whatsoever.

Value:54321

All air bag packs are pretty expensive. However, the extra safety that they have been proven to provide can't be understated. They are worth every penny. Mammut added a lot of value over some of the other brands by making the air bag system modular. So you only have to drop the big cash once to get into the air bag system. After that, you can get other styles and size packs for the typical ski pack price and just swap out the air bag system. All things being equal, this provides tremendous value over the other offerings.

User Experience:54321

The bag has been reliable and carries well. The airbag system isn't as large as some other brands, leaving plenty of room for storage even with the airbag unit in the bag. I've also found that the pack carries a load better than some others I've tried. You can keep the weight close to your back. When turning in skiing, not having the weight continue to pull you around in a turn makes a huge difference. I skied in a competitors pack and the load just sat too far out. It made the momentum of the pack want to keep pulling me through the turn. I've had nothing but good experiences with the Mammut ride 30.

Review:This is the way to go in my opinion. Now seeing all of the new options Mammut has put out this year in airbag packs, it makes me certain I have the right pack. The modularity is a deal dealer. I can upgrade to the 45 liter Pro for just the price of a normal ski pack if I need a bigger pack for hut trips. Or drop down in size to.the 18 if I'm just doing side country. I highly recommend these.
