Product Info

When all you need to carry is the basics - avy gear, a Red Bull, bag of chips and a spare goggle lens - and the terrain looks sketchy enough to worry about collisions with hard objects, you'll want the Ortovox Free Rider 16L Backpack backing you up. With its built-in SPS Back Protection System to cushion impacts and its minimalist profile that won't get in your way, the Free Rider 16 mission to "protect and carry" is well served.
