The Deuter ACT Lite 60+10 SL Women's pack provides female backpackers with 3661 cubic inches of storage capacity and carrying comfort at just over 4 pounds, making it ideal for multi-day and extended backpacking trips. Adding all weather versatility, Backcountry Edge includes a protective Deuter rain cover.
Catering to female hikers, the ACT Lite 60+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 60+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"-20" 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 60+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
- Great backpack. Light with just enough pockets.
Likes: I bought this for my wife as a surprise right before a backpacking weekend. She said, "I don't need a new backpack". About 4 miles into our hike she was joyfully thanking me. Women's hips are different and this pack made a huge difference in how it set on her hips. She couldn't get over how comfortable and what a difference a good pack made. Just enough pockets and bells and whistles too.
- Great Pack and Great Deal
Likes: This backpack is super comfortable. I've used it for multiple multi-day trips and it has held up wonderfully. I love the many different ways that it can be adjusted for the best fit. By far the most comfortable pack I've tried.
Dislikes: The hip pockets are a bit small, a phone does not fit well.
- Great pack for a first time backpacker!
Likes: This last weekend my boyfriend and I went on a backpacking trip in the North Cascades. It was just for one night and the pack worked great! Easy access for everything you could need! Also I love that it is adjustable, so you can change any part of it to fit you better. I've only used it once so I can't speak to durability. M
Dislikes: My only complaint is the size of the pockets around the waist. My phone couldn't fit (iPhone 6s) however my little travel camera did, so I was happy about that! Good pockets for tissues and maybe some chapstick. Quite small, however I didn't realize that not all backpacks had those pockets. My boyfriends pack didn't and he would have really liked to have them.
- This bag is top quality
Likes: I really like Deuter products. You can trust the quality and trust that it will last you throughout your travels. They have lots of pockets and compartments and I especially like the front stretchy pocket - great for bulky jackets or "just in case" bags.
Dislikes: I didn't like how pick it was compared to my 45L, so I returned it.
- Great pack for women!
Likes: At 5'2", it can be hard to find a backpack that can be adjusted small enough to fit me. I had to adjust this pack to the smallest settings but it fits great! It can also be adjusted to fit someone who is a lot taller. All of the straps pull nice and tight to fit shoulders and waist. The rain cover was included, which is epic since other sites charge a separate $40+ for the cover.
Dislikes: there is a lot of extra strap length that hangs off the sides and back because I have to pull the pack tight, but this is pretty common among all the packs I have tried simply because of my size!
- Love this pack!
Likes: I found this pack comfortable and easy to adjust. Was able to hike 3.5 mi in an hour with a full pack (had to return a bear canister before the store closed). Torso length can also be adjusted so I can let my sister borrow it. The extra pockets on the hip belt were great to store a camera and snacks (pockets on both sides). I was also able to stuff my ADK map in there too! Like the ability to have the sleeping bag compartment or not. I found this pack more comfortable than an Osprey pack I used in the past. Loved that the rain cover was included!
Dislikes: Wish the pack had a pocket from the outside to load a bladder. Also, I have relatively small hips, and when the pack was fitted, I had a lot of excess strap hanging down.
- Invest in this pack, your back will thank you
Likes: Quick and easy adjustable torso length
Great Padding in all the pressure point areas
Ventilated mesh to keep your back area cooler
Comfortable fit for women especially in the waist
Great amount of easy accessible pockets on outside of pack
Fits my Platypus 3L bladder perfectly in the back
Access to inside from the top or bottom of pack
Dislikes: Mine didn't come with a rain cover when I purchased it
- Great lightweight pack
Likes: Comfortable carry for 3-4 day hike worth of gear. Ample interior room and attachment points.
Dislikes: None, really. Wish waterproof cover came standard, or was less expensive.
