    Beefed-up support for big loads and ventilating comfort for long hikes.

     Built to let fresh air flow between you and the pack, as well as comfortably support heavier loads,  the Deuter Futura Pro 42 Backpack keeps you charging on the trail during day hikes or overnight treks. With a ventilating AirComfort Futura Pro mesh back panel and mesh-covered shoulder straps and hip-belt padding, you won't drown in sweat. The beefed-up suspension system comfortably handles up to 35 pounds of gear, and the padded shoulder straps and hip belt work together to distribute the weight in the right places. The hip belt pivots, following your movements to keep your load balanced on uneven terrain, and the sternum strap prevents the backpack from shifting side-to-side. Compression straps on the sides and hip-belt secure or reduce the volume of your load so items inside don't move around.

    Plenty of pockets allow you keep your gear organized while providing separated spots for smaller or wet items that you don't want intermingling in the main compartment. Trekking pole and ice tool loops on the side of the backpack hold your poles and tools, and you can attach additional tools or carabiners to the loops on the lid. If the weather's drizzly when you hit the trail, the backpack's water-resistant fabric and lid protects contents inside, and an integrated rain cover offers added protection if the drizzle turns into a downpour. The backpack is compatible with your hydration reservoir, and includes a reflective attachment for your drinking tube so you can easily find it if you're out on the trail before sunrise or after sundown.

    5 Years and Going Strong

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This pack was one of the best outdoor gear investments I have ever made. I didn't even buy it from Backcountry, I just wanted to write a review for the pack because I've enjoyed it so much.

    My Futura Pro 42 is a well-designed, well-constructed pack that has endured significant abuse over the past 5 years, and emerged shining. I should note that during 4 of those 5 years, I worked in the field in East Africa and South East Asia and used this pack 4-5 days per week.

    Versatility - Work trips in the African bush, chicken bus journeys, rock climbing excursions, even air travel -- the ProFutura 42 can handle it all. On a weekend backpacking trip, I've fit a 0-deg sleeping bag, thermorest, 2-man tent, clothes, food, water, and even a bit of bourbon without the pack feeling cumbersome and awkward. For day climbing trips, it handles all my gear and provisions without feeling uncomfortable.

    Durability - Again 4 years of HEAVY use and the straps aren't even fraying. Air-cooling suspension still nice and taught.

    Favorite Feature - Swiveling waistbelt.
