Deuter Speed Lite 24 Unisex Backpack
About this deal
The backpack has a Delrin U Frame, an athletic V-shaped construction that helps distribute the weight evenly. This cancellation policy does not affect your rights when we are at fault – for example, if goods are faulty or wrongly described. It adds many components that add a good dose of functionality such as adjustment straps, side pockets, hydration system attachment, two large zippered hip pockets, ice axe and pole attachments, stretch side pockets, wet weather compartment, stretch front pocket, rear headlight loop.
This is yet another amazing feature that shows how Deuter is able to fit everything into such a simple yet functional day pack.Though it's designed for speed hiking, the advantages of this lightweight, form-hugging, and superbly well-vented day pack should be obvious whatever your pace, says Dan Bailey. Despite this featherweight, Deuter made sure it was pleasant to wear with a flexible U-shaped flexible frame working along ergonomic padded shoulder straps for a good weight distribution. Finally, there are loops at the four corners of the front side for attaching an optional helmet carrier. This setup even allows two poles to be carried on one side with an ice axe on the other—useful for mixing hiking, snow, and rock climbing.
Thanks to their thinness, and their form-fitting shape, the straps offer unrestricted arm movement, and whether you're walking, running or scrambling the pack feels well balanced and unobtrusive. Deuter uses 100-denier ripstop nylon for the pack body and a honeycombed foam and mesh for the back panel. Pack designers are often guilty of needless complication, but while there's quite a lot going on here, the zip-entry Speed Lite manages to feel functional and uncluttered.To put the weight of this pack into perspective, it weighs around the same as a large loaf of bread or 4 iPhones. The perfect fit is very much a personal preference so experiment with different tensions on the pack to find what suits you best.
