The mountain goat of packs.
Designed as the perfect ski mountaineering pack for female athletes, the Deuter Guide 40+ SL Backpack combines every feature needed for technical climbing and skiing. The Variflex hip belt pivots with your body's movements, allowing you to maintain balance while swinging ice tools or making fresh tracks. Wide ski slots make it easy to carry your shred sticks, and the side-access zipper allows you to grab your puffy without dumping everything out in the snow.
Don't be fooled into thinking this pack can only handle winter adventures—with its breathable back panel and versatile design, it's also well-suited to summer ascents and climbing missions. Its supportive X-frame supports and stabilizes your load, whether you're carrying climbing gear or ski setups, and ergonomic mesh helps keep you from overheating when summer temps soar. And when the day's plan call for a light load, you can remove the X-frame and hipbelt to streamline things. Deuter also threw in a sitting mat that gives you a dry spot to sit when you're enjoying the view from the peak, as well as an SOS label with emergency tips.
