performance-enhancing suspension system, the Deuter Futura Pro 40 SL Women's
backpack is made for day hiking and ultra-lightweight overnight backpacking



Combining women's-specific design features and a performance-enhancing suspension system, the Deuter Futura Pro 40 SL Women's backpack is made for day hiking and ultra-lightweight overnight backpacking 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 Futura Pro 40 SL Women’s 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 Futura Pro 40 SL Women's 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 Futura Pro 40 SL Women's pack to a single, large compartment. Internal and external zippered pockets on the lid of the Futura Pro 40 SL Women's pack and zippered side bellows pockets provide further storage options. A front stash pocket with weather-resistant zipper offers convenient, easy-access to stowed gear. Two small zippered pockets on the hipbelt provide places to store valuables.

Other special features of the Deuter Futura Pro 40 SL Women's pack 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 point, and tube clip on the shoulder strap make the Futura Pro 40 SL Women's compatible with a hydration system (sold separately).
