A backcountry pack should do two things: carry gear and be comfortable. The Arva Freerando 24 Backpack does both with a close fitting shape that puts the pack right against your back and enough storage space to carry everything you need for a full day in the backcountry. The hip belt and shoulder straps are shaped to fit anatomically, so you won't feel the weight of the pack pulling you around while ride, and they are both adjustable to ensure a comfortable fit. Access to your shovel and probe are easy through the quick access avy tool pocket, while side straps carry skis in an A frame or a snowboard vertically. A single ice axe loop keeps you self arrest tool in tow when the mountain and snow demand it. If you prefer to roll with hydration bladder rather than deal with clunky bottles, a hydration compatible sleeve allows you to equip the pack with your preferred hydration system.
