With ample storage, rugged durability and comforable load-carrying capability, Dueter internal frame Aircontact backpacks are ideal for extended backpacking trips and trekking adventures.
With an array of features and a trail-tested German-engineered suspension system, the Deuter Aircontact 60+10 SL Women's internal frame pack is built for backcountry adventure. A standard capacity of 3660 cubic inches, increasing to 4260 cubic inches with the use of an extendible spindrift collar, equips the Aircontact 60+10 SL Women's pack for multi-day hiking trips.
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.
An anatomically shaped X-frame works in tandem with breathable, hollow chamber foam to grant the Aircontact 60+10 SL Women's pack load-hauling capability, padded comfort and ventilation. The X-frame offers a balance of rigidity and flexibility that effectively distributes weight. 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 60+10 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 60+10 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, a zippered lid pocket, elastic side pockets and a small zippered hipbelt 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 60+10 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 60+10 SL Women's backpack.

Likes: Excellent harness, I can hardly feel the weight. Great fabrics, convenient lash points, plenty of room in pouches, great space behind your head.
Dislikes: A pack front wet pouch would be nice , and that's all I've got to say about that.
