Durable pack, but not as versatile as I hoped. Pack of this caliber should have an adjustable back.


  • Durable
  • Water resistant
  • Outside harness


  • Can not expand outside harness system
  • Tour+ outside pocket obsolete when pack is loaded
  • Pack too small for the side zipper (gimmick)

I will not review anything unless I have had the product at least a year. I find the pack does not fit well. I am 5'10" and when weighted and all the weight is on my hips a pack of this caliber should have an adjustable back. 

I was hoping to replace a 2003 TNF Patrol Pack with this one. It is a great climbing pack. But because the buckles are only used by Deuter I can not expand the harness to carry float tubes, snowshoes, bed roll, etc.

I contacted Deuter Canada several times trying to buy buckles with no luck. So I will be hanging this on a wall for when I need a day-to-day pack.

I have been using this pack for work for a number of years and it has held up very well to the day-to-day abuse.


I own six 45L packs.

Nice narrow pack for backcountry skiing. I got the Deuter Air Contact for its ability to inhale my LL Bean -20 down bag in its bottom compartment and its extending top which is like my old 7 1/2 pound Dana Terraplane.

I gotta say that Trailspace's definition "winter packs" evidently means "winter DAY packs" for skiing and riding. And BTW, my Deuter pack is the large Air Contact 65+10.

I the summer I will use a 45lt pack. In the freezing temps and you need to carry extra everything. I bump it up to a 70lt when I am snowbound. Size and fit more than what it calls itself
