Stash your gear in the Ortovox Cross Rider Backpack before tackling off-piste terrain. This European backcountry ski pack is more than qualified to meet your every need in North Americas puny mountains. Stow some layers, lunch, and skins in the main compartment, and attach your shovel and probe externally for quick retrieval in emergencies. A net pocket cradles your beacon and first aid kit, and an ice axe fastener keeps your pick handy for those sketchy approaches. The chest strap features an attached emergency whistle, and two pockets on the hip belt stash your pit card or goggle wipes close at hand. The Cross Rider readily accepts your hydration bladder and drinking tube.
