The versatile Deuter ACT Lite 45+10 SL Women’s pack provides female backpackers with 2746 cubic inches of storage capacity and carrying comfort at less than 4 pounds, making it ideal for overnight or weekend backpacking trips.
Catering to female hikers, the ACT Lite 45+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 45+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 14"-19" 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 45+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
- Comfortable bag, great bang for the buck
Likes: Comfortable, spacious, lightweight yet stable for the price.
The suspension system does a great job offloading the weight, girlfriend had no problem with 25lbs over a weekend.
Dislikes: Could use sleeping pad straps, but just nitpicking.
- WONDERFUL PACK
Likes: I have not had the chance to actually hike with this pack, but it has everything that I would need. It is perfect for a day hike- to a 3 day pack (depending on how you pack it). I really enjoy the back support this pack offers.
Dislikes: The sleeping back compartment is a tad small.
- Great value
Likes: Even though this pack can fit so much inside, it feels like you're carrying nothing at all because it is so dynamic and works to move with your body. For this price, you are not going to find a better deal. The pack is also extremely appealing to the eye and comes in a gorgeous, rich green color.
Dislikes: My only regret is that there is no rain cover for the pack. But otherwise, it was a great purchase!
- Light weight and durable
Likes: Just got the bag and looks good and durable
Dislikes: None so far
- Great backpack
Likes: Love the size of it and the looks. Bought it for my daughter when we travel to Europe
Dislikes: Nothing so far
- Comfortable and lightweight
Likes: Compact but fits a ton in just 45 liters. Dont need the extra 10 but they are there just on case. Very unobtrusive. Hipbelt so much more comfortable than others i tried.
Dislikes: Only one hipbelt pocket (you could add another) and the pocket isnt super roomy. Fits my galaxy s7 fine if the case is off.
- Another great backpack by Deuter
Likes: The stretch pocket in the front is a nice upgrade from our older deuter packs which had a zippered pocket that always seemed to be just a little too small.
As with all deuter packs this one is roomy, durable, and very comfortable.
My wife loves the color!
Dislikes: It's too bad it doesn't come with a rain-cover, even if they had to raise the price slightly.
I miss having the straps on the bottom front for attaching a tent, and the front zipper access to the large compartment will also be missed, but the lack of these does make the pack lighter.
