Deuter Airlite SL 20L Backpack - Women's
Pure packing comfort.
Thanks to its Women-specific design, the Deuter Airlite 20 SL Backpack delivers both exceptional comfort and the technical features needed to explore your favorite trails. Fitted with the Aircomfort Flexlite back system, not only does the pack provide an anatomical fit, but it allows air to pass between your back and the pack for a cool and comfortable feel. The SL Women's fit system better accommodates more petite frames and its conical shaped lower back design better fits female hips. The closer-together, shortened straps also result in a more comfortable carry. A detachable rain cover can be easily attached to keep your gear dry, and the hydration compatible design lets you stay refreshed while you're hiking. Stretch side and front pockets allow items to be quickly secured to the pack, and trekking pole loops let you carry them on you're pack when you need your hands during ridge-line scrambles.

It's ready for the Grand Canyon. Are we?
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I ordered this pack for my mom's use at the Grand Canyon. Specifically, the wide space between the mesh back and the frame of the back will create some air flow in hot conditions. I know she loves the fit, and values the ability to carry enough water and sundries needed for a long canyon hike, that a fanny pack (her former go-to tote) cannot accommodate. But that comfort is only possible with the breathability and support of the pack.
Shoulder straps not right
The shoulder straps are not cut to wrap around your neck. They come straight out of the pack and the space between the two straps are too narrow for a normal small person. They also do not lay flat on the shoulder. The side of the strap by the neck touches the shoulder. the other side by your arm does not touch the shoulder. Design fault. . If your shoulders are flat across the top this pack might work for you.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought this as a gift for my sister. She loves it. The material is very durable. The straps are extra comfy and breathable. Great choice for a nice day pack.
