Cómodo para caminar en trayectos donde la temperatura es muy alta.

[Comfortable for walking on paths where the temperature is very high.]


  • Ventilation
  • Hiking in hot desert
  • Very comfortable


  • Pocket lumbar too small

I also have the Future 20. As option for bigger trips more days I bought this backpack to make an excursion three holidays in my beloved country Colombia. After use of the backpack I can say the following:

1. Like its companion (Future 20 liters) is very comfortable to walk and allows for ventilation, which is observed in the trips made with higher climes to 20 degrees celsius temperature.

2. The space allowed me to take the necessary (clothes, water, first aid kit, and food for these days (did not bring sleeping bag).

3. Did not understand how to make a pocket in the lumbar belt, so small that not for smartphone or camera. Certainly I did not find this useful, beyond saving gum or tissues . For the rest I was fine.

The color is not my affections at all (in this case I did not understand the color scheme, there are better for Deuter backpacks), but my priority is comfort.

Great fit. Nice amount of space — though smaller than it looks. Love the ventilation system.


  • Fit
  • Ventilation


  • Not super lightweight
  • Small space

I've been eyeing this backpack for awhile thanks to the great ventilation system. When you live in Arizona, keeping the heat of a pack on your back is the only way to continue hiking in the summer months.

I went for the Futura 24 because I wanted a more substantial daypack that could potentially be an overnight but wasn't super huge (I have a larger pack for that). I was a bit surprised by how small the inner compartment is in this pack. You can fit quite a bit but you must pack light and smart.

Also, I wish that the hip pocket was large enough to fit my phone (camera) or granola bar. As it is now, the only thing it can really fit is a chapstick or smaller items. 

From a comfort and fit standpoint though this backpack is great. Fits really well and has plenty of room for adjustment. Lots of extras too — plenty of pockets. Plus I adore the built-in compartment for my Camelbak. Makes it really easy.
