Ortovox Free Rider 26 S Backpack


Go Big 

The larger of the two short-torso-specific packs in Ortovox’s free-ride oriented backpack line, the Free Rider 26 S Backpack doesn’t mess around when it comes to storage. Plenty of room in the main compartment means you can comfortably fit everything you need for a long day out–extra layers, food, water, first aid kit, skins. The designated avalanche safety compartment keeps your shovel and probe easily accessible in event of a backcountry emergency, while external carry options for your skis or board, ice axes, rope, and helmet make sure you’re prepared for rappels, bootpacks, and whatever other obstacles stand between you and your line.
