    A mountain-devouring pack made just for the ladies.

    With its slim-body profile and women-specific design, the Deuter Women's ACT Lite 60+10 SL Backpack is a mountain wandering gal's dream. Not only does this backpack have narrower, anatomically-shaped shoulder straps and a shorter torso length, but it also has an adjustable torso length, so you can dial in your perfect fit. In addition to its customizable fit, the pack has ample storage capacity for weekend treks through the wilderness as well as a bottom compartment, wet/dry storage area, internal valuables pocket, and a height adjustable top lid to accommodate more or less gear depending on the trip. Stash you rain jacket in the front stretch mesh pocket for quick access, and put two water bottles at the side for easy access while you hike.

    Perfect pack!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This pack is the best and fits like a glove. I used to own the Osprey Ariel 65 and it always felt too big and never seemed to fit right. With the Deuter ACT lite, the 60 liters is the perfect size, without feeling too big. I've taken this on a 3 month international trip, camping and on multiple weekend trips and it always works. I am 5'10" and 120 pounds so finding a pack that was comfortable, even with larger loads, was tough. However, the Deuter SL fit is great for women who struggle with wider packs. I've owned this pack for about 6 months and overall, have had no problems with any features (zippers, pockets, etc.)

    Excellent Expedition Pack!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I used this pack on a climbing expedition to Island Peak and Ama Dablam in Nepal, and I loved it! It carried beautifully and the two pockets on the waist strap were excellent for keeping snacks and sunscreen etc. handy. The pack was really roomy making it easy to carry all my bulky high altitude climbing gear. This pack had all the bells and whistles I hoped for together with excellent hip support and being lightweight. An all around winner!

    Excellent Expedition Pack!

    Fits like a glove!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I tried out countless brands of backpacks, searching for the perfect one. This Deuter pack was hands down the most comfortable pack! I recently did The Narrows hike at Zion as a top down overnight hike. I was the only one of our group of 4 not complaining about my pack rubbing or hurting.
    It does lack 3 features I really was hoping to find in a pack. I wish it included a front access zipper, built-in rain fly, and built-in day pack. However, my biggest concern was comfort and this pack definitely met my expectations..

    Fits like a glove!

    The Pack My fiance was looking for

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    From the words of my Fiance: "I tried it on after trying on several other packs at a local REI and one of the most notable differences was the comfort of the hip straps. They are much more flexible and thus comfortable on my hips, something I knew would be important while on long hikes. I think it might be a tad too big for my 5'5" frame but I'm excited to take it camping this summer!"

    Initial Impression - Love!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I've only used this backpack on one trip so far but I'm really impressed by it! For a not super high-end price point, it's a really bomber constructed bag and it's pretty feature-rich.

    I was concerned it wouldn't fit me because I'm 5'9" which is usually out of the "one size fits all women" range and the Deuter SL packs only come in one size, but the torso fits perfect with still a few more bars to go if I need to extend it more! The adjuster for the torso couldn't be ANY easier - it literally takes about 30 seconds to change to torso length.

    This pack feels really light to me. It's a pound lighter than a couple of other ones I was looking at, which is a pretty substantial difference to me. I think the weight-to-features ratio is awesome.... it has everything I need, but isn't overbuilt at all. I'm not a fan of packs that have SO many straps, zippers and pockets that you end up getting lost in it. This has all the straps and pockets that I need and better than too many more straps (IMO), it has tie-down points to lash stuff to it only if you need to.

    The back is super comfy. I haven't worn it in hot weather yet, but imagine it's going to be a lot less swampy than others, and the support feels really nice.

    The most important thing, and what I really love, is that it carries a burly load REALLY well. I had it stuffed to the gills and the suspension was spectacular. I like that Deuter doesn't sacrifice that for a lighter pack. I was really stoked on how close it carried to my body and how well-suspended a heavy load felt. My shoulders were singing for joy!

    Other things I really like:

    - deep stretchy side pockets
    - cavernous sleeping bag compartment... big enough to fit my bag, pillow and down clothes so all the really light stuff can cram into the bottom
    - the stretchy front pocket: good for wet stuff or little things you want asap
    - expandable from 60L to 70L with a floating lid. This is awesome for a multi-day when you'll start out with way more food and need to compress down

    Little things I would like to see done differently:

    - a whistle on the sternum clip
    - bigger hipbelt pockets (my beast phone doesn't fit)
    - drawstring for the top load could be smoother - you have to help it some to cinch it up

      This backpack has been such a wonderful adventure companion. I love that I can adjust the back in so many ways. The only thing is I wish the buckles we stronger but Ive only started having problems with them breaking in the last couple of years. I've had mine for 6 years now. I'm most likely going to buy the same one again.

      I named her Bethany


        Bought this pack for multi day trips for work. Got it because I love my 30L one so much and it has proven just as great! Sturdy, very adjustable and feels great on my back. The only cons are the brain does not detach and it does not come with a rain fly. I even ended up taking it as a carry on to visit my sister! The pack is not super light, but I am willing to sacrifice weight for durability given that I work on a trails crew.

        Unanswered Question

        I don't see any sizing specs here; what is the adjustable torso range, and how small a waist fit?
