Backcountry Edge Exclusive: FREE rain cover included! The Deuter Aircontact Lite 60+10 SL Women's pack provides female backpackers with ample storage capacity and carrying comfort at just 4 pounds, 3 ounces, making it ideal for multi-day and extended backpacking trips.
Catering to female hikers, the pack incorporates ergonomic design features. The hipbelt has a conical shape to provide a proper anatomical fit and the shoulder straps are 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 Lite 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 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 cinch down the pack body to secure contents and stabilize your load.
The pack has a large top-loading main compartment 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 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 and a built-in tube exit point make the pack hydration system compatible (system sold separately).
The Deuter Aircontact Lite 60+10 SL Women's internal frame backpack is available in your choice of color options.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great backpack
Likes: Was bought for my daughter for Christmas. She did a lot of research and found this one to be the one she wanted. Light Weight, nice looking, lots of compartments.
Dislikes: None known as of yet.
Likes: Tried many packs in the past and They always fit me wrong in some way or another. Someone suggested to try and deuter pack. I didint see a lot of reviews but what I read were all positive. I’m on a women’s hiking page on fb and some of them suggested it to. The icing on the cake was the video you need on the pack that sold me! Very impressive customer service too I will be back!
Dislikes: Like others I wish the water bottle holder was tilted towards you
- Very comfortable
Likes: Have only used it camping once so far but really love it. It's light and comfortable with all the padding, especially around the hip belt.
Dislikes: None so far.
- great functional backpack
Likes: I initially purchased the 45L+10 for backpacking but ended up getting the bigger version of 60L+10 after trying it out for a weekend. The 45L+10 was fine also but felt like I didn't have enough room for everything once the tent and sleeping bag went in there. I wanted a pack big enough for longer trips if needed and settled on this bigger size pack. I had my eyes on Gregory Deva but the back support pushed down my back too much but did not have any issues with the Deuter ACT. I just came back from 22 mile round trip backpacking trip and the pack felt very comfortable. The top lid comes off as a daypack if needed, if you choose not to bring an extra daypack. Unlike other brands, the back strap can be adjusted for different torso lengths, which prevents you from buying the wrong size pack. The soft padding in the back felt very comfortable while hiking and straps were easily accessible to adjust if needed. There are plenty of loops to attach carabiners as well.
Dislikes: The pockets on the hip straps could be bigger or waterproof to store bigger phones and protect electronics if stored in there. I do wish that one of the side pocket was tilted like the Gregory for easy access if water bottle was plcaed.
- This is my 2nd purchase of the same backpack. I used the 1st one and backpacked ~40 miles on a 6 days trip. Very comfortable. Daughter then took it on a year long travel and loved it so much that she kept it. So I am buying it again.
Likes: Light, comfortable, roomy, love the flower!
- Deuter Fan
Likes: A car wreck left me with chronic neck problems. Deuter is the only brand that I can wear that's comfortable for me. I'm 5'9", with a torso length of 18". Pack seems well designed and the price, with a rain cover, was great.
- Good construction!
Likes: Good construction! The adjustable straps really help to customize your pack to your back. 60 liters is just enough for me to fit my tent, sleeping bag, bear canister, clothes and essentials. I really like this bag.
- Great fit and features
Likes: Lots of separate compartments and has the trekking pole storage. Good low back contour and with easy adjustment for torso. Bonus that it came with the rain cover from!
Dislikes: None yet. See how it holds up on 3 planned Rainier climbs this summer...
