With the change of seasons upon us and spring and summer hiking and backpacking coming, there is no better time to check out what’s new in packs and upgrade your gear. Lucky for us, @Deuter has released a newly updated line of colors, venting and suspension that I @Im_NicoleMarie have already gotten to try and test and I am passing one off to one of you lucky women who hike!
Pictured here is the Speed Lite 24L SL which is a lightweight bag made especially for women, its actually the lightest bag from Deuter in their hiking series collection and it comes in a variety of sizes: 22, 24 and 32L. I was lucky enough, long ago to be fitted for my first pack at my REI Co-Op and matched with a @Deuter and have been using them ever since. What I love about Deuter is their commitment to innovation, technology and comfort because these are things we all need and want on the trail, comfort especially. This is achieved by the numerous technical features found in each of their bags, this one included.
Features on the all-new Speed Lite include the all new Lite Air System which includes a Derlin U Frame system for stable load distribution and Lite Air back panel which is an extremely light and minimalistic back system which still provides the ventilation needed even during the most challenging of terrain. Other features and convenience options on the Speed Lite are soft and snug fitting hip fins, load adjustment straps, chest strap, stretch side pockets, stretch front pocket, loop attachments for poles and/or ice axe and every size of the Speed Lite comes fitted a 3L hydration bag compatible sleeve in the interior. And, still the best part? Even the 32L bag weighs in at under 2 lbs. You can see the entire lineup of new bags for 2018 at deuter.com
