Tough hikes demand tough packs.
It has gained the titles of "indestructible" and "custom-made." That's how it will stay, although the popular trekking backpack is now up to 15% lighter.
The new, ergonomically shaped hip fins flow into the back construction and literally embrace the body. This allows even heavier loads to be carried easily and close to the body's centre of gravity.
In addition, the Aircontact, which is also a great travel backpack, lets you use its lid as a separate, detachable small backpack.

SL Womens Fit
- On average, women's backs are not quite as long as men's. The SL carry system is thus slightly shorter than that of Deuter's standard rucksacks.
- The easiest way to carry heavy loads is when backpack and wearer become one. This is what our Aircontact principle is all about: the body contact system brings the weight close to the body and therefore close to the center of gravity. This results in full pack control and an effective load transfer. Furthermore, the Aircontact cushions made from special hollow chamber foam guarantee fantastic ventilation due to the pump effect of every movement.

Aircontact System Back System
Designed for Lightening Heavy Loads
- Perfect load transfer to the hip belt due to the adjustable and flexible multi-chamber aluminium X-frame. Offering the perfect fit, it sits close to the back and keeps the load incredibly stable and well-controlled close to the body’s centre of gravity.
- Due to open cell foam technology. With every movement air circulates through the cushions keeping the back ventilated. The result*: 15% less perspiration than with other body-contour packs. (*proven in a field test conducted by Gabriel L.&T. in co-operation with the University of Erlangen/Germany)
