For a better hike.

Deuter's Airlite 22 Backpack brings a seriously comfortable carry to day-long hikes over tough terrain. Its Aircomfort FlexLite suspension system has a twin-frame design that enhances flexibility as well as ventilation by separating the pack's load from your skin. This system also includes anatomic shoulder straps and waist belt made of 3D AirMesh padding for breathable cush.

Inside the Airlite's top panel, you'll find a hydration system that's compatible with three-liter reservoirs. The front stow pocket has a detachable rain cover, and there are dual waist belt pockets perfect for trail mix. Deuter also added side pockets for water bottles and compression straps for a secure load.

Structured support makes the difference!

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

I have had other small day packs, including the REI Flash. They are light, and can hold gear. The problem? Over distances, all that weight (i.e.,2 liter water bladder), hangs, and pulls, on your shoulders. No hip or torso support whatsoever. The Deuter Airlite is a nice small day pack. But it has a great frame, that is still lightweight. It breathes, and has a great torso strap with mesh backing and pockets, that provides the support to hold water, that packs like the Flash simply lack. That allows for greater comfort for me over longer stretches of trail. Also, a huge unexpected plus: It comes with a nicely tucked away rain cover! How awesome is that.

Awesome Pack

I've used it several times

Love having a smaller pack that I can use for shorter hikes and excursions. It is large enough to fit up to a full 3L water reservoir of any brand and still has plenty of space for other stuff in the pack. the pockets on the waist straps are great for holding small items. There is a system that keeps the bulk of the backpack away from your back so there is airflow on your entire back. That's a nice touch. Would definitely recommend this or anything in this series to anyone.

great little pack

I did a fair amount of research before I bought this small day pack and am nothing but satisfied with it. The back suspension system fits great and allows ventilation. Chest,shoulder and hip cinch belts adjust easily. The zippered mesh pockets on both sides of the waist snap are great for snacks. I mainly got the pack for it's size and that it had mesh water bottle pouches on either side. Interior top compartment for my wallet, top straps for a raincoat. This is a great, lightweight small pack. I just did the rim to rim in the Grand Canyon and could not have asked for a better pack.
