Deuter USA Backpacking & Sustainability
We’re teaming up with Deuter USA again just in time for backpacking season! We are giving away the Futura Vario 45 + 10 SL backpack to one of you lucky ladies. The Futura 45 + 10 SL is one of several backpacking bags in the Deuter line up that I @Im_NicoleMarie have tried and tested! It just got back from four days in the Sawtooths, and I can’t say enough good things about all its features and the Air Comfort System!
The Futura Vario features the ergonomic Aircomfort Sensic Vario mesh back which allows for optimal ventilation and the Vari-Slide system which allows quick and exact adjustment for every torso and back. The Active-Fit shoulder straps adjust automatically and the Variflex ECL hip fins make for comfortable carrying as you move through the mountains!
In addition to great gear for the trail, Deuter is a leader in sustainability in the outdoors.
