Drawing on true alpine experience, the Deuter Freerider Pro 28 WL Women’s ski/snow pack offers varied carry options and organizational solutions for winter sports. With 1850 cubic inches of storage space and stand-out features, the Freerider Pro 28 SL Women’s pack is ready for cold-weather adventure.
Catering to female adventurers, the Freerider Pro 28 SL Women's pack incorporates ergonomic design features. The hipbelt has been given a more conical shape to provide a proper anatomical fit and the shoulder straps have been set closer together, are narrower and shorter in length, and have smaller buckles and narrower tapered strap ends to prevent chafing under the arms and eliminate pressure points in the chest area.
The Freerider Pro 28 SL Women’s pack utilizes Deuter's Alpine Back System. Comprised of two vertical padded foam strips and two crossed, removable aluminum stays, the Alpine Back System offers stability and comfort while providing a "chimney" at the spinal column for ventilation. The suspension comfortably accommodates torso sizes ranging from 16"-21" in length. A pivoting Vari-Flex hipbelt mirrors your movements, keeping the pack out of your way while you concentrate on skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing. Anatomically contoured shoulder straps enhance flexibility, comfort and precision fit. Ventilated pads in the back, shoulder straps and hipbelt help to keep you cool and comfortable on your adventures. Load-lifter straps and a sternum strap work in tandem with the shoulder and lumbar padding to effectively distribute weight throughout the pack, further ensuring stability and comfort.
External attachment points abound on the Freerider Pro 28 SL Women’s pack. Horizontal front straps safely secure a snowboard or snowshoes. Additional attachment points give you the option of carrying skis vertically, diagonally or in an A-frame position. Rugged Hypalon material positioned across the face of the pack protects the Freerider Pro 28 SL Women’s pack from the wear and tear of crampons, skins, bindings or other winter gear.
A panel-loading packbag provides the Freerider Pro 28 SL Women’s pack with 1850 cubic inches of storage capacity. The access point is strategically positioned to allow entry to the packbag without the need to unlash gear. In fact, you can place the pack face down on the ground and access the pack from behind so that the suspension system doesn’t pick up snow or moisture that would otherwise be transferred to your back when you put the pack back on. Stretch side pockets, a fleece-lined goggle pocket and an integrated hipbelt pocket provide further storage options.
Other features found on the Freerider Pro 28 SL Women’s pack include a shovel head pocket, an internal probe/handle sleeve and a removable helmet. An internal pocket and built-in tube exit point make the pack hydration compatible (hydration system not included).
