I'm thinking of getting one of these, the ABS vario system looks good. Any experience or comments on this or alternative makes?

In reply to kevin stephens: Just got a Mammut RAS (removeable airbag system) - I got it because you can stick the system in different sacs - I got the 22L one which is good for a day tour but you'd struggle to get much more than avi gear, some spare clothes and a butty. It's also not got any explosive in it like the ABS system, which I suspect makes it marginally easier to get through airports (didn't stop the Jet2 people being complete bellends about it last week though).

I got a reasonable discount at snowshepherd on the RAS but had to get the rucsac from elsewhere. Sport Conrad and Glisshop are worth a look if you can wait a few days.
