When should you use an ORTOVOX freeriding backpack?

Our freeriding backpack models make the perfect companions for downhill runs far from the madding crowd.

What size should my freeriding backpack be?

To ensure your freeriding backpack provides the best possible protection, it is important that it sits well. Therefore, ORTOVOX freeriding backpacks come in two different sizes: “S” (for “short”),  and “R”.

Backpacks with an “S” in their name have shorter back systems and are especially suitable for people with short backs.

  • If you are approx. 150–175cm tall with a back length of 36–44cm, we recommend a “short” (S) freeriding backpack.
  • If you are approx. 170–195cm tall with a back length of 42–50cm, we recommend a “regular” (R) backpack.

This is how to find out which backpack size is right for you: Measure the length of your back from the 7th cervical vertebra (easy to feel on the back of your neck) to the top of your hip bone.
