Designed on the concept that it's easier to carry heavy loads when the backpack and wearer work as one, the ACT Lite 45+10 SL Backpack - Women's from Deuter incorporates an Aircontact Lite System that relies on the compression and expansion of hydro and thermo-phobic Aircontact foam to provide ventilation and load-carrying comfort. A continuous air channel along the spine allows warm air to escape and permits cool air to funnel between your back and the body of the pack. Unique performance features of the ACT Lite 45+10 SL Backpack include ice axe/trekking pole loops, top lid attachment rings, and a front elastic cord attachment for lashing gear. Two elastic mesh side pockets allow for transportation of water bottles and a lined internal pocket, built-in tube exit point, and tube clip on the shoulder strap make this Deuter Women's pack hydration compatible. The new ACT Lite series also features a huge stretch-stuff-it pocket, stretchy side pockets, and double lid buckles for added stability. The SL models offer a women's specific fit with specially shaped shoulder straps and hip belts. These best-sellers are now even better!
Works like a charm!

Sized smaller than i thought it would but worked great either way! i don't carry a very heavy load, about 20lbs so it felt quite comfortable still. if you're a taller female i recommend going with a male pack from Deuter if you need to carry heavy loads. They measure short for us tall girls!!! Other than that I love how it feels and the pockets are TERRIFIC!

This pack is great! I tried on a bunch with weight and this is by far the most comfortable. It's also really light and can shrink down to day pack size with the straps snugged up.
Pros: Great design
