Ortovox Free Rider 26 S Backpack Black Raven
Product details: Ortovox Free Rider 26 S Backpack Black Raven
The Ortovox Free Rider 26 S fits extra snugly against the back when freeriding in any terrain. This is primarily down to soft back pads and the flat, elasticated Clasp Flex Belt which provides control in every situation as well as reliable support. The focus of the Free Rider 26 S is on the environment: This backpack is completely PFC-free and, thanks to the use of recycled polyester, also climate-neutral.
The “S” in the name stands for short. All of Ortovox’ S-backpacks are primarily characterised by their significantly shorter back system, which makes them excellent for women, but also for men with short backs. What’s more, the hip and shoulder straps are also adapted to the female anatomy.
On the go, the freeride backpack can be quickly compressed using the integrated side straps and folded into a flat-fitting second skin on the back. When it comes to rappelling into steep gullies or short walking passages, this freeriding backpack has all the necessary attachment options for skis, an ice axe or rope, not to mention the tried-and-tested helmet net, emergency card and hydration system compatibility.
The Free Rider 26 S ski touring backpack also offers enough space for climbing skins and ski crampons, ensuring extra flexibility out on the mountain. Emergency equipment can be neatly stowed away and kept at hand in a separate safety compartment, while all other items are stowed in the main compartment. The Ortovox Free Rider 26 S is a versatile companion for maximum flexibility and freedom of movement on skis.

To determine the back length, use a measuring tape to measure yourself from the top of the hip bone up to the 7th cervical vertebra (it clearly protrudes).
