Product Info

The Ortovox Free Rider 22L S Backpack feels like an extension of your body, but carries enough gear for many day tours. Incorporating the SPS (Spine Protection System) back protector as part of the design gives you permanent impact protection from the likes of rocks and trees. With a comfy wide hip belt, both A-frame and diagonal ski carry capability (and a snowboard carry attachment), and its close-to-the-body fit, the Free Rider 22 S is one of the best pack options out there for sidecountry and backcountry use. (The "S" means short back length, suitable for riders of smaller stature).
