Key Features.

Support and Cushioning:

  • Air channel between the AirContact cushions helps reduce perspiration by 15%

Insulation:

  • Compression straps let you cinch down loads for jostle-free carrying; simple, lightweight tool loops let you quickly stash trekking poles and ice axes

Frame:

  • Aircontact back system with Delrin® U-frame rod allows warm air to escape and fresh air to circulate between the pack and the user's back

Hipbelt:

  • Hipbelt pocket holds snacks; mesh side pocket stores water bottle, headlamp, gloves or sunscreen; lid pocket holds a map, compass or GPS, spare batteries and other small items
  • Anatomically formed hipbelt wraps body, stabilizing and controlling lateral movements of pack while on the go

Weather and Wind:

  • Large stuff-it pocket on the front holds rain gear or other bulky items
  • Integrated, tuck-away rain cover stands ready to protect your load from sudden downpours

Sizing:

  • To take account of the narrower shoulder width of the female anatomy, and thus prevent slippage, the SL shoulder straps are both narrower and shorter in length.

Zippers:

  • Large Side Zippered Pocket
  • Lid pocket, valuables pocket inside and two kinds of side pocket (zipped and meshed) provide a variety of stowing solutions
  • No more rummaging around for your gear – the two-way zip on the front allows direct access to well-buried items, even when the lid is closed
  • Main compartment has plenty of room for an all-day hike; 2-way zipper on the front allows access to buried items

Pockets:

  • Valuables pocket on hip belt

Fit:

  • In order to give a perfect anatomic fit around the upper body, the SL shoulder straps are both narrower and shorter in length.
  • Flexible, tensioned Delrin® U-shaped frame provides stability with little extra weight. It follows the most varied movements with absolute ease. The frame combines with the body-hugging fit of the pack to create a comfortable yet compact carry system with even load distribution and effective load transfer.
  • In general, the female waist and hip area is also shaped differently, so in order for the waist belt to deliver a perfect anatomic fit when fastened, it should ideally have a conical shape.
  • curving the SL waist belt wings. The frontal adjuster system feature of our larger volume rucksacks simplifies the waist belt fitting procedure.

Fabric:

  • 3D air-mesh fabric lining adds breathability to the contoured, padded shoulder straps
  • The Deuter ACT Trail 28 SL pack is made with lightweight and abrasion-resistant 210-denier ripstop nylon
  • Microrip-Nylon / HexLite 210
  • Tough 3D Airmesh covering fabric provides climate control and supports Deuter's excellent Aircontact ventilation system

Ventilation:

  • Two Aircontact pads in special breathable hollow-chamber foam distribute the load evenly. The Aircontact pads perform a pump effect, whereby every movement prompts the exchange of air, resulting in optimum back ventilation. The result: 15% less perspiration than with previous body-contour packs.

Hydration:

  • Hydration-compatible design features reservoir pocket and drink tube exit port for on-the-go hydration (reservoir sold separately)

Straps:

  • Soft edges to the straps, smaller buckles and narrow tapered strap ends prevent the SL shoulder straps from chafing under the arms and eliminate pressure points in the chest area.
  • Elasticised toggle straps double up as compression straps
  • Stabiliser straps allow optimal positioning of the backpack
  • Anatomically formed 3D AirMesh shoulder straps with load transfer straps
  • SL (Slimline) is specifically designed with narrow, short shoulder straps and short torso proportions for women

Features:

  • Carrying Capacity = 20 lbs.
  • SOS label
  • This conical form is achieved by angling the belt diagonally upwards and by
  • U-Shaped Front Panel Access
  • Clever front design with large mesh pocket/helmet flap
  • Elastic front compartment where you can also store a jacket or harness etcetera
  • Anatomically formed hip fins for freedom of movement and body-hugging carrying.
  • On average, women's backs are not quite as long as men's. The SL carry system is thus slightly shorter than that of Deuter's standard rucksacks. Conse quently, the models in the SL series are the ideal choice, too, for male users with shorter backs.
  • Anatomically cut hip belt bilaminate foam provides great load transfer and offers freedom of movement
  • Wet laundry compartment

Deuter Act Trail 28

The Act Trail SL is the first "women's" pack that I've owned and as soon as I put it on it just felt right. I didn't need to spend a bunch of time adjusting the torso and should straps etc. to get the pack to rest comfortably on my hips and shoulders and also have the chest strap in the right place. It's got a nice, sleek fit on my back, so I feel very agile with it on. I "glow" more than average and the back system really helps ventilate and keep the sweat down.
In terms of storage – the pack is well thought-out and carries a lot of stuff. I've used it for climbing trips, fishing trips in Cali and Colorado, and hiking in the Sierra. The top pockets and side pockets allow you to compartmentalize your gear (like gear, fly boxes, maps, food, layers) and be organized. Maybe the best part is the zips on the back. You can lay the pack flat on the ground and have instant access to everything in the main body without having to dig through the top. Also it's got a pocket for the rain cover that allows quick access – and the rain cover actually keeps the pack dry in afternoon downpours!
My husband has borrowed the pack a couple times for backcountry climbing trips; he's 5'11" and the pack can be adjusted to fit him comfortably. I'm glad it's turquoise to keep him from stealing it permanently!
It's a great day pack, lightweight and versatile, and is super comfortable.

Super-versatile backpack

This Deuter backpack has definitely one of my best purchases - I love it and it is so versatile! I bought this to be a replacement travel backpack on a trip to Tanzania. I wanted a good carry-on bag that would hold binoculars, books, SLR camera and big lens, jacket, and water bottle. I would be hiking with it and I needed to easily access anything while in the Land Rover.

Wow, did this fit the bill.

The design fit my body perfectly and the straps were adjustable. My backpack was very packed with heavy equipment but it was always comfortable and the hip straps kept it stable.

The bottom zipper allows easy access to anything on the bottom of the bag and the rain fly adds padding to the bottom. Great for camera supplies like batteries and extra SD cards.

The side straps and pockets allow you to strap a jacket or poster tube to the outside of the pack.

The backpack size is perfect for overhead airline bins and yet it holds everything I wanted to carry, including lots of books that were easy to access from the front pocket.

I highly recommend this as a travel, day hike, short trip, and photography equipment pack.

My Dream Pack!!!!

I have been searching for my 'Dream' bag for years. The Deuter ACT Trail 28 SL pack for women is IT! It's the perfect size, extremely comfy & pretty too. I use it for everything; it's my everyday, my weekend getaway & my international travel bag!

The front zipper access makes it the perfect suitcase.I took it with me on a recent, 8 day,trip to Cuba.The main compartment held 2 pairs of shorts,5 shirts, 2 dresses,7 pairs of undies,2 bras, 2 pairs of socks,1 hoodie, 1 swim suit,ziplock bag of tea, 1 thermal mug,1 pair of shoes,a large toiletries bag,a large manuscript & a pocket book (I'm sure I'm forgetting something)...with room to spare. The water reservoir pocket was ideal for my laptop while in transit & heaven while out and about in the hot humid weather.(*no worries about the laptop clunking around during travel, the bottom is cushioned by the rain cover pouch...I also store my med kit in the rc pouch. So it gets extra cushion.) The side pocket was perfect for accessibility to my liquids during airport screening.

I can't wait to take it with me on my, 8 week, trip to NYC, Ireland & Scotland in the spring!

At last!!

Two of my most favorite things to do are to go hiking and landscape photography. or years I suffered with uncomfortable "photo backpacks" that fit my photography related gear, but little else and they were uncomfortable!! About 3 months ago I decided I had had enough and after much research I decided to purchase this Deuter pack.

Amazing purchase!! I am so happy with this pack. It is extremely comfortable and the design of the padding on the back keeps me feeling cool all day. The first time I used this pack was on a very rainy day at a local park, Sierra Azul, loaded up with my expensive camera gear and the rainfly held up perfectly! This pack fits everything I need and then some. All of the straps fit perfectly as does the pack and I love, love, LOVE the easy access opening at the bottom of the pack as I can get my camera out without unloading everything.

Couldn't be happier. Up next for this pack and I, cross country road trip with hiking EVERYWHERE! Starting with Angels Landing next week!!

Easy Access, plenty of space,

Requirements for me:
- slightly larger day pack than I had previously
- pockets on the outside
- top opening
This is a great pack with easy access. My first real test was my first attempt as a one night very lightweight backpacking trip. Then I took it as my 'bag' to stuff inside a dry bag for a 5 night rafting trip. Love the zippered access, the clips and outer pockets. While it is top loading, it is also completely zippered around the front which makes it easy to find stuff at the bottom of the pack. I used the accompanying rain cover to minimize the dirt insects getting while backpacking also. It has one hip pocket for conveniently storing lip balm or sunscreen, which I like, especially since I don't notice it at all (whereas on other packs I end up rubbing arm on them). Great pack! Very happy with it!

Everyone loves the color too!

Perfect

I love this pack. I have a Deuter SL backpack as well, and they just fit my slim shouldered, narrow/high waisted frame. It holds more than probably I'll ever need in a daypack, but it was great as the one pack for four of us on a rainy day in the Smokies a few weeks ago. I had been day hiking with an older camelbak helena, but I like the hip belt (I tried on some of the smaller deuter packs with the mesh hip belt, and felt they didn't really provide the support to help lift some of the weight off of my aforementioned narrow shoulders). The only thing I wish about Deuter in general is that they had a few internal pockets or organizers for smaller items, but if you load it up with a few separate dry bags, its easy enough to find things, and the built in rain cover is a pretty great add on.

Love this pack!

I did a lot of research on day packs before finally purchasing this Deuter pack. I will be using it to hike the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim next year, but ultimately wanted a mid-size, affordable pack for the camping trips and day hiking I do. This pack is just perfect for me. I'm more of a recreational hiker, but still wanted a quality pack that I could fit enough water, extra clothing, snacks, etc. and offer all the comfort. I love that the pack is top loading and front loading - I can pack and access all my stuff easily. It has all kinds of compartments for storing small items securely. I just did three hikes in Glacier and the weather was warm. My back didn't get all sweaty. This may sound silly and trivial, but I love that it is red and the little flower! It fits me so well, I don't really even notice I have it on.

Still looks new after 450 miles!

I bought this pack a few months before summer and used it as my school backpack to wear it in and it worked wonderfully! It fit my laptop (outside of it's case) in the water pouch and held up to the wear of heavy book corners.

Then I used it as my main pack all summer as a biologist technician in Alberta Canada (some rough mountains!). I hiked over 400 miles with this baby and NOTHING broke. I carried extra layers, food, water, GPS, sample kit, radio, med kit, bones, and more! This pack stayed comfortable the entire time and adjusts very easily. Opening from the top is an awesome feature for anyone into wildlife because there is no 'zip' sound to alert anything when you grab your camera out of the main pouch.

Now, with over 450 miles the only sign of wear is the dirt I forgot to clean off.

Best of Both Worlds

This pack is something of a hybrid. It is an ideal size it for a day hike, but has enough capacity for overnight trips. I use it as a carry-on backpack when I am flying, but also for day hiking when I need layers, a camera, food etc. I like the zip-open-like-a-suitcase feature when you are looking for something that is right at the bottom of the pack.
I love the fit - it really is made with the female frame in mind. The ventilation is comfortable enough so that you don't feel hot and sweaty on your back. The built in rain cover is discreet, but oh so useful when it does rain. I don't use walking poles, but my mom has used this pack and she loves the "carry your poles" feature.
The flower/hairband is a nice touch, and definitely stops my husband wanting to use this backpack when I'm not around!

Like wearing a cloud!

I was in search of a new day pack that was both comfortable and spacious. After trying on several packs, fiddling with the pockets, and wanting something pretty, too, this one fit the bill perfectly. It is so comfortable! Like the headline of this review, I always tell my hiking companions that it's like wearing a cloud. I can carry a bunch of water, food, 10 essentials, and rain gear and still not be bothered by the weight of the pack. The padded straps and hip belt are excellent and make this pack so comfortable. My favorite features are the little hip belt pocket, the compression straps, the outer back pocket that makes stashing a jacket super easy, the built-in pack cover, and the adorable flower. Deuter delivers on this one.
