FEATURES of the Deuter Women's Cruise 28 SL Pack.
SPECIFICATIONS of the Deuter Women's Cruise 28 SL Pack.


  • Top lid with a spindrift collar lets you load the pack like a traditional top-loading pack
  • Spindrift collar and top lid help keep snow out of the main compartment; hydration-compatible design accommodates a reservoir and tube (sold separately)
  • Spin-drift Collar


  • Board straps and wide ski slots let you carry a snowboard vertically or skis A-frame style; external attachment points make it easy to lash on an ice axe and poles


  • Four side compression straps lock down the load to keep it feeling solid while skiing or climbing


  • Hipbelt and shoulder straps are tailored to a woman's shape for all-day comfort while you chase powder stashes and bag peaks

Weather and Wind:

  • Back-panel access lets you get to the main compartment's contents when lashed-on gear blocks access from the front, and helps you avoid letting snow in
  • Snow-shedding stretch side pockets; easy-access front pocket for shovel and probe; hidden pocket under lid for valuables; dual side compression straps


  • Full Back-entry Hemispherical Zipper


  • Two side stretch water bottle pockets hold your liquids within quick reach
  • Front pocket holds your shovel and avalanche probe where you can easily get to them in an emergency or practice scenario
  • Top lid features a main pocket to stow a map or headlamp and also includes a security pocket on the underside to hide valuables


  • SL women-specific fit includes a shorter back length and a curve-accommodating harness to match female frames (as well as smaller males)
  • Pack fits torso sizes between 15-20in long
  • Adjusters on the shoulder straps fine-tune the fit; loosen them for comfort during approaches and quickly tighten them down for precise load control

Lining and Layers:

  • Back panel hemispherical access to the main compartment lets you get to layers, crampons, or snacks with your skis or board attached to the front of the pack


  • Durable ripstop and Polytex fabrics shed snow and withstand abuse from years of mountaineering
  • Delrin hoop construction


  • Padded pack carries up to 22lb on the longer alpine approaches and only weighs 2lb 12oz
  • Adjustable shoulder harness and waist-belt feature anatomically shaped pads for exceptional all-day comfort
  • Alpine Back System features a padded back panel and two foam strips with a ventilation channel between them that draws cool air in and expels hot air out like a chimney


  • VariFlex pivoting hip belt will follow every movement and helps you keep your balance on difficult terrain
  • Back System also transfers the weight of the load to your legs for less shoulder and back strain
  • Climbing gear loops on the waist-belt hold hardware during more vertical alpine ascents and descents
  • Ice axe and trekking pole loops attach your tools to the pack when not in use
  • Foam back panel can be removed for use as a bivy mat
  • Two air-channeled foam stripes ensure maximum air circulation and stability (Spring 2014)

The best days in the backcountry may be the longest and most challenging, but they always yield the deepest and most legendary rewards that the mountains have to offer. For those days, the Deuter Women's Cruise 28 SL Backpack can ensure easy access to your avy and alpine gear while providing a sure fit from first light to sunset.


Light and efficient, the Deuter Cruise 28 SL pack takes your skiing, snowboarding and mountaineering to new heights of comfort and convenience with a women-specific fit and snow-specific functions.

Deuter Cruise 28 SL Backpack Reviews:


I bought this pack for my daughter who is around 5'2" and was having issues with fit with several other packs. It's primary use is intended for day trip backcountry ski touring. So far can report that the fit is excellent, she finds it comfortable both on the climbs and descents, and that it seems well designed for its intended use.

Finally! A pack that fits my 5'6" frame, 19" torso length. I have narrow shoulders and a women's fit makes all the difference for me. Love all the pockets and means of attaching gear. I'll be using this pack for biking, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing and overnighters. The online help was exceptional in the selection of this pack. Thank you!
