Deuter's Freerider backpacks have always been top quality, German engineered packs for skiing and snowboarding, but they gave them a facelift this year to make them more comfortable and prettier than ever. The Deuter Freerider 26 features their Alpine Comfort carry system, a huge front safety gear pocket for quick access to your shovel and probe, and storage garages for all your attachment loops and webbings so you don't have any straps whipping you or snagging trees while you're enjoying the ride down. It also offers several internal storage compartments, an easily accessed fleece lined pocket for your spare goggles, and is hydration system compatible. If you get this pack, the only thing you'll have to worry about is what line down you're going to pick and where you're headed for a burrito when you're done.
