The streamlined Deuter ACT Lite 35+10 SL Women’s pack provides hikers with 2135 cubic inches of storage capacity and carrying comfort at just 3.5 pounds, making it ideal for long day hiking trips or overnight excursions.
Catering to female hikers, the ACT Lite 35+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 back system relies on the compression and expansion of hydro and thermo-phobic foam to provide ventilation and load-carrying comfort. A continuous air channel along the spine of the ACT Lite 35+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, contoured shoulder straps and hipbelt further help to keep you cool and comfortable on the trail. An anatomically-profiled aluminum X-frame system offers a balance of rigidity and flexibility, effectively distributing weight. Further enhancing fit, Deuter's Vari-Quick harness system adjusts easily to provide optimal comfort and load distribution for torso length sizes ranging from 13"-18" in length. Side compression straps enable you to reduce and expand the size of the pack body as needed, securing contents and ensuring load stabilization.
The pack has a large top-loading packbag and a lower front-accessed sleeping bag compartment. A zippered divider between the two allows for organization and separation of wet and dry gear. When hauling longer items or in need of access between the two, you can unzip the divider and convert the packbag to a single, large compartment. The pack's extendible lid houses dual pockets with secure, zippered entries.
Other special features of the ACT Lite 35+10 SL Women's pack include ice axe/trekking pole loops, gear attachment rings on the lid, zippered hipbelt pockets, mesh side pockets, and a large, elastic front stash pocket. A lined internal pocket, built-in tube exit point, and tube clip on the shoulder strap make the pack hydration system (sold separately) compatible.

Real Customer Reviews

Likes: Great little pack for extended day hikes. Great adjustability and nice feature set for a pack this size. I like the zippered divider for the sleeping bag compartment. You'll need a pretty small sleeping bag for this size pack though. Overall, a great little pack for extended day hikes or very light overnights.
Dislikes: Would like to see Deuter add a 2nd hip belt pocket; especially on packs this size that have a smaller hip belt (and pocket) in the first place. The shoulder straps are pretty narrow which is fine on a pack this size and may be a good thing for some; may tend to 'dig' a bit for others though.
