Why We Like The Free Rider 22L Backpack

The Free Rider liberates our pursuit of pow. Built while considering the most daring quests, this pack features a dedicated avy pocket with internal organization for quick-and-easy access to gear and a separate compartment for Ortovox's spine protector (sold separately) to give us added protection on those steep drops and tight tree lines. With a single pull, the internal compression system hugs our load in close without even having to take the pack off, while the fluid hipbelt handles the weight with ease as it follows our every move.

A few updates needed

5' 5"

Many great ideas in this bag (dedicated avy tool pockety, bright color inside pockets for increased visibility, nice size goggle pocket for essentials) however some of the functional parts of the bag fell short. The largest pocket in the bag is accessible from the back and the top but from the top the zipper only opens as wide as the where the top buckles come across, making it pretty much useless. The hip belts also have A LOT of extra belt...I had to really wrap it around the belt to hide it/get it out of the way it was hanging down so much. These two misses in design lead me to return the bag.
