Boasting a performance-enhancing back ventilation system, 2550 cubic inches of capacity, and a long list of features, the Deuter Futura Pro 40 SL Women’s pack is well equipped for day hiking or overnight backcountry trips.
As women's backs are not, on average, as long as men's, 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, and have smaller buckles and narrower tapered strap ends to prevent chafing under the arms and eliminate pressure points in the chest area.
The pack utilizes the Aircomfort Futura Pro Back System, consisting of a lightweight, flexible, anatomically shaped spring steel frame that hugs your torso and supports and adds tension to a mesh back panel. Moist air can freely escape through the space created between the pack body and your back, preventing heat buildup. Soft, breathable fabrics and ventilated pads in the back, shoulder straps and VARIFLEX pivoting hipbelt further help to keep you cool and comfortable on the trail. Load adjuster straps and shoulder and lumbar padding further aid in the effective distribution of weight throughout the pack. Side compression straps enable you to reduce and expand the size of the pack body as needed, further securing contents and ensuring stabilization of the load.
A zippered divider between the top loading main compartment and front entry 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 pack to a single, large compartment. An additional large front zippered pocket offers organizational options and increased storage. Internal and external zippered pockets on the lid and zippered side bellows pockets provide further storage options.
Other features include ice axe/trekking pole loops, top lid attachment rings, and an integrated rain cover for protecting your pack against the elements. Two side stretch pockets allow for transportation of water bottles and a lined internal pocket built-in tube exit points make the pack hydration compatible (hydration system not included).
