Product Info

The Ortovox Free Rider 22L Avabag Airbag Pack gives you the added safety margin of an airbag pack without weighing you down. The 22 liter capacity is just right for full sidecountry days or cat and heli trips where you only need to carry avy gear, a lunch and added layers. The nitrogen powered Avabag system is extremely light and compact and the inflated bag dips low to protect the torso.
