Free Rider 16L Backpack

For those who want a little more protection from the unknown when venturing into the side or backcountry, check out the Ortovox Free Rider 16 Pack. This durable pack not only securely stashes your avy gear, but its back doubles as a back protector for your spine.

From a backpack standpoint the Free Rider is compact but features many important features to help you enjoy a day on hill. Ski and snowboard holders make your boot pack more comfortable while the hydration compatibility and spots for poles and ice axes help keep you prepared for anything.
