Why We Like The Deuter Freerider SL 28L Backpack
The Deuter Freerider Pro 24 SL Backpack is up for just about anything the backcountry may conjure up for us. We like the women-specific Alpine Back System, which includes X-frame aluminum stays for stability, a flexible Delrin U-shaped frame for mobility, padded shoulder straps, and a removable back panel that doubles as a sitting pad for shoveling pits and studying the snow. The Freerider also features Deuter's Vari Flex waist belt, which pivots with our hips for easier mobility on the mountain.
Like every backcountry ski pack, the Freerider features a compartment designed specifically for our safety gear, such as a probe and shovel. However, unlike most ski packs, the Freerider offers an extra compartment designed specifically for wet gear. It also carries skis, snowboards, helmets, ice axes, and trekking poles with external attachment loops and compression straps. Zippered security and fleece-lined pockets store smaller electronics and valuables. This pack is also hydration-compatible for any 3-liter reservoir or smaller, ensuring we don't go thirsty as we ski or snowboard the backcountry.
