Mammut are committed to the safety of their products, as such they continually assess their products to find potential improvements and identify problems.
Unfortunately they have identified an issue with a portion of their Removable Airbag System 3.0 manufactured for the Winter 2020 season. They have found that on a small number of systems the compressed gas cartridge cannot be screwed in all the way.
Is My Airbag System Affected?
The affected Generation 3.0 airbag systems have a neon-orange deployment handle and were produced in winter 20/21. The affected systems have a batch number 2011.
If you have purchased your airbag system from facewest.co.uk then it is not affected. Currently we have not sold any of our stock delivered after the affected date. We have now checked our entire airbag stock, none of which is affected.
How To Identify The Issue
Check whether the cartridge is screwed completely into the mechanism of the Airbag Inflations System up to the stop or whether it can be screwed all the way in IMPORTANT: the cartridge is completely screwed in when the black rubber seal of the cartridge is no longer visible!
If the cartridge is screwed all the way into the mechanism of the Airbag Inflation System and the black rubber sealing ring of the cartridge is no longer visible, the cartridge is correctly installed in the mechanism of the Inflation System. Your airbag is fully functional after the cartridge has been correctly installed in the Airbag Inflation System and the rucksack is ready for use again.
What Do I Do If My Airbag Is Affected?
If the cartridge CANNOT be screwed all the way into the mechanism of the Airbag Inflation System and the black rubber ring of the cartridge is visible, the airbag inflation system is fault. The affected airbag system may no longer be used and must be returned immediately to Mammut Customer Service
