Deuter Aircontact 70+10 Backpack Review:

Reviews:

I rented this pack for a weekend backpacking trip in Joshua Tree, and this pack was the worst. I'm glad I rented the pack before purchasing anything so now I have a good idea of what I want in a pack, and this is definitely not it. I am 5'4" ~120lbs, and because it is one-size-fits-all pack, I had the pack set to the lowest possible setting, and all of the weight of my pack was above my shoulders, making it extremely uncomfortable. All of the women on the trip rented the same pack, and for taller ladies, it seemed to be just fine, but for all the petite women, the hike in to camp was a nightmare (on top of all our own gear, we all carried 10 liters of water- around 25 lbs extra weight!).
The fit of the pack is really the only thing that I have a complaint about. The sleeping bag compartment fit my compressed bag and sleeping pad easily. There are plenty of compression straps to help keep everything stable. The detachable lumbar pack was a nice feature. The water bottle holders were too far back for me to reach with the pack on, but I just had a buddy grab it for me, so it wasn't too big of an issue. There was ample room for all of my gear.
