Abstract [en]

The interest for off piste skiing has exploded in the last couple of years. More and more people are venturing further out into nature. Many skiers want to get as far away from the resort as possible and instead of using a ski lift they rather walk up the mountain. IRIS is a ski backpack designed to meet the needs and wishes of these practitioners, both the professional and nonprofessional, with a strong focus on ease of use, flexibility and safety. No matter what equipment the user carries with him or her, the avalanche safety equipment is always accessible. The extended zipper affords the user to open the backpack very wide, which simplifies the preparation and packing. IRIS is compatible with an existing avalanche airbag system.

The project is done in collaboration with the Swedish outdoor brand Tierra.
