The Ortovox Free Rider 22 AVABAG Avalanche Backpack provides the highest level of protection while still remaining lightweight and comfortable. Equipped with Ortovox's removable AVABAG airbag system, it offers maximum protection in case of an avalanche, with a leg loop strap to ensure the bag carries you with it when detonated.
Another major feature is the newly redeveloped SPS FLEX back protector. Built from eight pads that remain comfortably flexible even in the cold, the protector adapts to your body and absorbs impact through the immediate hardening of the foam. Meanwhile, the broad hip belt and the avalanche backpack’s body-integrating silhouette ensure a secure fit on your back for maximum comfort. Boasting a full 22 litres of packable space, even with the airbag system installed, you can also bring all the gear you need, no matter how long you're heading out for.
