Deuter Aircontact 75+10 Backpack Reviews:


First impression: Very impressed

First off, I'm in my mid-40's and a big guy. Apparently there aren't an overwhelming number of us out there because after a lot of looking, I pretty much resigned myself to having to spend a chunk on a custom made pack. Then I stumbled across the Dueter. The specs indicated that it "should" fit me and the price was low enough (compared to the custom pack I was considering) to put REI to their 100% satisfaction guarantee. My first impression is very positive.
1) Fit: Adjusting the torso lenght. No sweat.
Waist belt: Plenty of room. The spec said 50 inches. I didn't measure but it's every inch of that.
Shoulder Straps: A previous post said they needed to be longer, they fit me fine but we're all shaped differently.
Load lifters: They're adjustable (vertically) as well.
With the waist belt cinched and everything else snug it feels like a lumbar pack.
2) General comfort: There's plenty of mesh covered foam padding in the straps and back pad.
3) Volume: 85 liters internal plus what you lash to the outside. I fit a king size fleece blanket, 2 "woobies", 2 50"x80" fleece throws (one rolled one loose), and a GI isssue wool blanket in it and there was still room for more.
4) External: The "daisy chain" on the zippered access panel feels sturdy enough and the zipper is pretty beefy. Short of just plain overloading it I don't expect a problem there. Personally I'm more worried about the "daisy chain" straps but time will tell and I'm really looking forward to load testing it for real.

great pack!

This pack is awesome! I haven't actually taken it on the trail yet, but it went around and up and down an aircraft carrier. Thats more strenuous than some trails. The hip is well padded and even when loaded down with a ton of stuff it didn't feel like was really carrying anything. i love the seperated sleeping bag compartment and how the middle opens up. it makes getting to things much easier without completely unloading and packing is quick and easy and makes it even easier to put items exactly where you want them. it is very durable. it got picked up with a full load by places it probably shouldn't have been picked up by and got thrown around plenty and nothing broke. i'm going on a 3 day, 20 mile trip soon and that will be the next test for it. so far i can't say anything bad about it.

Buy this pack

Winter multi-night wilderness excursions.
For a very few extra ounces get the 3 access methods on this pack and the extra lashing points.
This is my 2nd Deuter. Compared to a very large Gregory pack this is so much more comfortable. The adjustment points are excellent and the hip belt is very comfortable. The map pocket is a great addition. This is a sleek small horizontal profile pack. Making it easier to balance and control. fitting a -40 Marmot bag and all my solo gear was no problem. I had room to spare. I am especially impressed by the back cushions that allow my back to breathe. The 3 aluminium stays give the pack the stability needed in dicey situations that require finese in balancing. I think this will become my all year round backpack.

Big Man pack

I'm a 350lb man that was in need of an upgrade to my pack. I tried on many but this one actually had a hip belt that went around my waist. I have already used it once and loved it. The storage is great and the compression straps keep things from shifting during travel. I would have liked to see the sholder harness be a little larger but it works. I can typically carry a full pack for myself and two kids.

I traded my Gregory Baltoro 75 because I wanted a more main stream type pack (less bells and whistles and pockets.) This pack was brilliant on my trip up Whitney this year. It is simple, holds gear excellently, packs down for summit pursuits and is durable as I rubbed in on all kinds of rocks while scrambling on the mountaineers route. My favorite pack period!

Awesome Backpack

I used this backpack on a 4 day hiking/camping trip to Big Bend. The pack performed great. I didnt have any problems with it at all. I had all my camping gear plus some photography gear loaded up. I would definitely reccomend this pack to a friend.

Everything you could ask for

After trying on multiple packs at the rei store I landed on this one. It had all the bells and whistles, and was very comfortable. After using this to backpack around Indonesia I would deffinatly recommend this pack.

Great fit, comfortable to carry

Looking to upgrade from my 13 year old Gregory Lassen. New design is easier to load.
