With an array of features and a trail-tested German-engineered suspension system, the Deuter Aircontact 75+10 internal frame pack is built for backcountry adventure. A spacious interior and organizational options equip the Aircontact 75+10 pack for extended backpacking trips.
An anatomically shaped X-frame works in tandem with breathable, hollow chamber foam to grant the Aircontact 75+10 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 a wide range of torso lengths. Adjustability in the padded shoulder straps and pivoting Variflex hipbelt aids in both comfort and fit.
A zippered divider between the main compartment of the Aircontact 75+10 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 75+10 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. Large side pockets, an interior pocket, a zippered lid pocket, elastic side pockets and a small zippered hipbelt pocket provide additional places to store and organize gear.
Other special features of the Aircontact 75+10 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 sleeve in the main compartment and built-in tube exit points make the pack hydration system (sold separately) compatible.

Real Customer Reviews
- The ultimate back pack
Likes: Heavier material throughout, large zippered opening to main compartment, adjustable suspension, extra pockets, large hip belt for extra comfort, great for extended trips.
- Great Pack however lacks some key features if used for Mountaineering
Likes: It's a great pack and nice fit and good harness system. I took it for some climbs in the North Cascades. Loved that it has an integrated Raincover stashed beneath the pack.Overall Deuter is a great company.
Dislikes: However, I had an issue at a previous alpine climb. I took the Aircontact 75+10 with me to basecamp. Obviously I did not carry any summit pack as we were trying to keep weight to the min. So I emptied the pack and took only summit related essentials in the pack. We had to climb a section of 800 ft of vertical rock (3rd class rock scrambling). The top of the bag became an issue and I was uncomfortable as I could not look at the above as I was climbing as that lid section of the pack kept interfering in my neck and head movements climbing up. Ultimately the guide loosened the straps a bit so that I could gain more mobility.
The Guides had packs which the top could be unzipped and removed either creating a lighter summit pack or just the lid converting in a lightweight day pack which was a great feature.
The side storage is great, but it is very difficult to access a water bottle while you are hiking.
So that was the only Issues I had with the pack
