Ortovox Free Rider 28 Backpack


Pack More 

You’ve heard the saying “Go big or go home.” The Free Rider 28 Backpack has the most space of all the packs in Ortovox’s freeride-specific lineup, meaning you can pack big and send it big, too. The large main compartment fits everything you need for an epic day in the mountains—think extra water, food, layers, first aid, crampons—without you having to sit on your pack to zip it up. The separate avalanche safety compartment keeps your beacon and shovel close at hand, while the plentiful external attachment points for your helmet, skis or snowboard, ice axes, and rope complement the spacious interior. If you’re looking for a backcountry backpack that won’t come in the way of your freedom on skis and won’t limit what you can bring with you, the Free Rider 28 should be at the top of your list.
