With the Free Rider 22 Avabag Kit you can be sure to be well equipped for your adventures on freeride or touring skis! For this backpack includes both a back protector integrated in the back system and also the airbag with release unit! The effective usable volume of 22 l is perfect for half-day tours or day touring when you need only little equipment. However, the airbag unit requires a volume of only just under 2 l and with its 640 grams it is a real lightweight! The integrated handle is put through the left side shoulder strap and is shaped in way that facilitates the release in crucial situations. Of course, the Avabag unit can be removed so that both the Free Rider 22 can be used as ordinary touring backpack and the airbag system with a larger backpack. The back system is made of several padded insets flexibly adapting to the body - also in cold temperatures! A rigid plate behind these insets serves as a protector (certified) for the spine when falling. The wide waist belt is provided with hook-and-loop and a metal clasp. It keeps the backpack tightly on the body. A separate compartment for probe, shovel and beacon allows a quick access if necessary. During ascents with snowshoes the skis can be attached to the backpack so that they will just be at hand for the downhill tour. Every part of the Ortovox Free Rider 22 Avabag Kit can be used with gloves!
