Protection and provisions, for downhill demolition.
Charge downhill trails on your mountain bike a little faster and a lot more confidently with Deuter's Attack 20 Backpack protecting your back. Boasting a high safety standard certified by TÜV/GS, the Attack's Shield System uses viscose-elastic foam to absorb shock from harsh impacts, and you can remove it if you like to live dangerously. Deuter molded the shoulder straps to move with you, and there's enough padding at the waist belt to keep you comfy.
The Attack also features a hydration sleeve compatible with your three-liter bladder, and there's a helmet holder suitable for full-face brain buckets. Deuter also added a rain cover to protect your gear from wet weather, and the waist belt has zippered pockets for protein bars. There are more pockets for valuables, electronics, and water bottles, too.

The Deuter Attack 20 can carry a ton of gear. I'm an xc rider but wanted a little bit larger pack since I carry camera gear every now and again. The Deuter is by no means a light weight pack. It's burly and will take a beating. I removed the shield foam in the pack and it lightened it up quite a bit. The bag alone is still fairly heavy but it makes up for that in comfort. The padded shoulder straps are soft and supportive and the waist strap is well thought out and easy to adjust. The back ventilation is decent but I get hot easily so it may not be a problem for you. Regardless I don't feel like my back is soaking wet. Organization inside the pack is nice and there are several little zippered pockets and other pouches that hold your gear. Another nice touch is a zippered cell phone pocket that you can easily reach while the pack is on (it's on the right side of the pack). If you're looking for a pack that can carry a ton of gear, be comfortable, and look good while doing it, look no further.
Is there a separate compartment for the hydration bladder?
Can you remove the SAS-TEC armor pad?
