Good for Tall Women
A 10-liter lid pocket adds extra space to this narrow pack thats well-suited for tall women, but is easily adjustable, too. Deuters Veri-Quick system adjusts quickly and expands this packs torso range enough that its a great match for taller women (shorter Womens Adventure testers had a hard time finding a fit in this one-size-fits-all style). The contoured hip belt and narrow-set shoulder straps are specially designed to fit a womans body and Deuters Aircontact Lite system pumps air with every compression of the thick, foam, moisture-wicking back panels, which ventilates well and prevents soggy sweating.
Other features include top and bottom access with optional bottom compartment, hip belt pocket, hydration slot and built-in front stretch stuff-it pocket. The packs crossing aluminum stays allow for efficient load transfer when the packs stuffed with up to 45 poundsnot a hard target to reach with its volume and loops and buckles allowing easy tying on of additional gear. At less than $200, it is modestly priced, but began to show some wear after moderate testing use.
