Airbag Mammut pros/cons
 
I'm about to get a Mammut airbag backpack; tending to the Protection Airbag System over the Ride RAS.
Tried both; the RAS feels a tad more comfortable while wearing, while the Protection has rather wide bulky shoulder straps not really designed for women. It's ok, but less comfy.

But the airbag design of the Protection is more appealing: the blown up airbag of the RAS is a huge bulky cushion in the neck which bends/pushes the head forward. The Protection one surrounds the head without touching it, and it protects your front/torso as well. My take is that it's a everyday comfort vs. emergency trade off.

What other pros/cons am I missing? Any thoughts/experiences? If you would get one now for yourself, which one would you choose for what reason?
