ABS bag for telemark setup ( Non NTN and no leashes)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am considering the purchase of an airbag, I was primarily concerned with the extra weight over a standard day pack (2.5 lbs more ??) but having looked online I have read some comments that the use of an airbag with a standard telemark setup is negated by the lack of release function on the binding, skis anchor and thus no point in buying the airbag as you'd be pulled under anyway. I always remove the leashes in tricky terrain and assume a rough fall would still remove the skis but would appreciate hearing from someone who knows their stuff. Cheers.

Try asking this over at earnyourturns.com. More backcountry content and experience, and they could use a good hot topic.
