Retailers' Descriptions

Deuter—a pack pioneer and innovator—demonstrates its usual great craftsmanship in thes top-loading Futura 40 SL women's daypack, but in a light design! To cut weight, pack is made with light but strong and abrasion-resistant micro-rip/ripstop nylon and polyester. SL refers to Slim Fit, specifically designed with narrow, short shoulder straps and short back to fit those up to 5 ft. 7 in. tall. Deuter Aircomfort patented suspension allows warm air to escape and fresh air to circulate between pack and wearer's back. Suspension consists of a spring steel frame that is flexible and light, and tensioned to support the suspended mesh and ventilation. Contoured, padded shoulder straps are lined with MeshTex fabric for breathability; stabilizer straps properly position pack. Soft hip pads and hipbelt wrap body, stabilizing and controlling lateral movements of pack on the go; hipbelt features a valuables pocket. Main compartment has plenty of room for a full day hike, on or off the trail. Front stash pocket and side mesh pockets store often-accessed gear such as water bottles, headlamp, first-aid kit, sunscreen and multi-tool. Top lid pocket can hold your map, compass, GPS, spare batteries or other small equipment items. Hydration-compatible design features reservoir pocket and drink tube exit port for on-the-go hydration (reservoir sold separately).
