You've strategically placed your rain jacket in the top pocket of your new Deuter Aircontact 55+10 Backpack, so it's as easy to access as the pack's integrated rain cover when the weather takes a turn for the worse. Another smart move was to fill the expandable area with a medium-weight fleece and extra food because it looks like this spring squall is more than just a shower.
