I am wearing the Deuter Speedlite 30 day pack. This is a do-everything backpack that is ultra lightweight, weighs all of 2 pounds, has a really streamlined design and can be used for just about anything and everything. Pretty minimal suspension here on the Speedlite 30, again, the focus is on lightweight construction. Spacer mesh is used in varying densities here on the back panel to give you really nice, next-to-skin padding and there is a little bit of chimney effect here in the center to allow some subtle airflow and keep you a bit cooler while you’re wearing the pack. That padding makes its way up the contoured shoulder straps and the hip belt, which is adjustable, is very minimal. You can see the spacing in here and it is broad, which gives it a nice wrap, but it isn’t really padded. There are sizeable, zippered waist belt pockets so you can keeps things like gels or keys close at hand otherwise this is a pretty streamlined profile on the back of the pack. The Speedlite 30 is a top loading pack. See the single buckle here on the hood with a zippered pocket underneath the hood and Deuter’s standard SOS instructions underneath the lid. There is also another zippered pocket on top of the lid. There is a really sizeable, stretch, front pocket here that lets you put layers or even a helmet in a pinch at the front of this pack. Some really great stretch there. You can see the side compression that lets you lash thing into place. There is off-set buckling that lets you run the compression across the pack and cinch that down which enables this pack to carry skis or larger items in a variety of different ways. This really adds to the versatility of this pack making it suitable for year round use depending on what activities you do. Side stretch pockets down below with a water bottle in one and you can run any kind of gear down here like trekking poles or tent poles. Ice axe loop here, underneath that can be tucked away when not in use to maintain that nice clean profile. That’s the Deuter Speedlite 30, again, a lightweight, streamlined option for any and all aerobic outdoor activities.
