Reviews - Deuter Freerider Pro 30
Totally bomber pack
I have used a lot on BC ski packs over the past few years and this is my fav. I have used the TNF Patrol 35, Marmot BC30, Arcteryx Silo 40, DaKine BC, and the mountain Hardware Wayback. The Deuter FR Pro 30 beats them all, on balance. It has more and better thought-out attachment points for backcountry toys than any other pack (especially skis, splitboards and snowboards). It has a really supportive suspension (more so than the TNF and Mtn Hardware) which is more comfortable than most (like the overly-stiff Arcteryx). The closest pack is the Marmot BC30, but that has very light materials and wimpy zippers. The Deuter has better pocket organization and more pockets and slots than any of the other packs by a mile. Some packs lack the avy pocket space for real shovels plus skins and other essentials, but not the Deuter. It has some really tough materials and stitching, big YKK zippers, and lots of organization. A good harness and comfy back panel make it a pleasure to carry though bendable back panel rods would be nice. The only gripe I have with the Deuter is that the back panel access zipper can bind where it turns corners. Otherwise it is a meaty, full featured, serious backcountry tool for hundreds of day trips up the mountain. Quality stuff.
Deuter Freerider Pro 30
The Deuter Freerider Pro 30 is as advertised. It works well for what I'm using it for witch is snowshoeing and back-country nordic skiing. It is large enough for a day trip with all your avalanche gear, or a cross country over night hut trip. I'm planing to also use it for day hiking trips this summer. The only cons for me are first the price, even on sale it's pricey. the hydration tube exits the back awkwardly. And last the compression straps go over the side pockets. I don't like it but if your using them for climbing skins it works.
I recently bought this backpack for my weekend hiking's and it is by far one of the best I've owned. As other reviews point out it is not very light (being almost 4 lbs.), but all the extra things it has more than compensate for that. I have still to try it for snow hiking (I haven't used it with skis or snowboard attached), but for a regular hike it works flawlessly. The padding is great and it feels very nice, even when carrying a lot of weight, plus the design allows air to flow on your back. It really feels great even during a hot summer hike. I highly recommend it.
