New for 2014! The Deuter ACT Lite 70+10 SL Women's pack provides female backpackers with 4882 cubic inches of storage capacity and carrying comfort at a weight of just 4 pounds, 3 ounces. The excellent balance of weight and performance make the ACT Lite 70+10 SL Women's pack ideal for multi-day and extended backpacking trips.
Catering to female hikers, the ACT Lite 70+10 SL Women's pack incorporates ergonomic design features. The hipbelt has been given a more conical shape to provide a proper anatomical fit and the shoulder straps have been set closer together, are narrower and shorter in length, and have smaller buckles and narrower tapered strap ends to prevent chafing under the arms and eliminate pressure points in the chest area.
Built on the concept that it's easier to carry heavy loads when the backpack and wearer form a single entity, Deuter's Aircontact ACT Lite System relies on the compression and expansion of hydro and thermo-phobic Aircontact foam to provide ventilation and load-carrying comfort. A continuous air channel along the spine of the ACT Lite 70+10 SL Women's pack allows warm air to escape and permits cool air to funnel between your back and the body of the pack. Soft, breathable fabrics and ventilated pads in the back, shoulder straps and hipbelt further help to keep you cool and comfortable on the trail. An anatomically profiled X-frame system with 1” aluminum stays offers a balance of rigidity and flexibility, effectively distributing weight. Further enhancing fit, Deuter's VARIQUICK harness system adjusts easily to provide optimal comfort and load distribution for torso sizes ranging from 14"-20" in length. Side compression straps fully wrap around the pack and enable you to reduce and expand the size of the pack body as needed, securing contents and ensuring load stabilization.
The ACT Lite 70+10 SL Women's pack has a standard capacity of 4272 cubic inches. An integrated, extendible spindrift collar expands that capacity to a full 4882 cubic inches. A zippered divider between the top-loading main compartment and a front-entry sleeping bag compartment allows for organization and separation of wet and dry gear. When hauling longer items or in need of access between the two compartments, you can unzip the divider and convert the packbag to a single, large compartment. The ACT Lite 70+10 SL Women's pack's removable lid houses dual pockets with secure, zippered entries and converts to a summit pack with its own straps when detached from the main pack body.
Other special features of the Deuter ACT Lite 70+10 SL Women's pack include bottom compartment pad straps, ice axe/trekking pole loops, gear attachment rings on the lid, stretch-woven side pockets and a hipbelt pocket. A lined internal pocket, built-in tube exit point, and tube clip on the shoulder strap make the ACT Lite 70+10 SL Women's pack hydration compatible.
