Built to carry heavy loads and maximize organizational and access efficiency, the Aircontact Pro 65+15 SL Women’s is ideal for multi-day backpacking and extended trips. Multiple points of adjustment ensure that you get a comfortable, customized fit.
As women's backs are not, on average, as long or broad as men's backs, the SL carry system is slightly shorter than that of Deuter's standard backpacks. The hipbelt has been given a more conical shape to provide a proper anatomical fit. The shoulder straps of the SL packs have been set closer together, are narrower and shorter in length. The SL pack is equipped with smaller buckles and narrower tapered strap ends to prevent chafing under the arms and eliminate pressure points in the chest area.
Twin steel vertical support stays works in tandem with a contoured spring steel frame to grant the Aircontact Pro 65+15 SL Women’s heavy load-hauling capability. Extensive foam padding in the backpanel delivers padded comfort and enhances ventilation. Further enhancing fit, Deuter's Vari-Quick harness system adjusts easily to accommodate torsos ranging from 13"-20" in length. Adjustability in the padded shoulder straps and pivoting Variflex hipbelt aids in both comfort and fit. In addition, a concave molding at the top of the backpanel works in conjunction with the height-adjustable lid to provide a contoured space for head movement, combating the stiff, sore neck often associated with a long day on the trail.
A zippered divider between the main compartment of the Aircontact Pro 65+15 SL Women's pack and its lower 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 Aircontact Pro 65+15 SL Women's pack to a single, large compartment. The main compartment has top loading access and in addition, a large, U-shaped front zipper enables you to quickly put hands on gear and or clothes without having to dump out the entire contents of the pack. Side bellows pockets offer large storage capacity and even have drinking tube pass-throughs for carrying hydration systems (sold separately). An interior pocket and a zippered lid pocket provide additional places to store and organize gear. A streamlined front panel pocket is well-suited for stashing maps.
Other special features of the Aircontact Pro 65+15 SL Women's pack include ice axe loops, top lid attachment rings, dual front daisy chain attachment systems, an SOS instruction panel and an integrated rain cover for protecting your pack against the elements. A lined hydration sleeve in the main compartment, built-in tube exit points, and a drinking tube clip on the shoulder strap further enhance the backcountry functionality of the Aircontact Pro 65+15 SL Women's backpack.
