Employing a "trampoline" style suspension system, the top-loading Deuter Futura 34 EL pack is ideal for day-hikers looking for organizational features and versatile performance. Its "extended length" makes it ideal for hikers with longer torso lengths.
The pack's Aircomfort Sensic System consists of a mesh net strung across a flexible steel spring frame to provide lightweight stability while standing away from your back to allow for the cooling effect of air circulation. Note that the torso length is not adjustable, but comfortably fits 16"-20" torsos. Cushioned columns along the sides of the back panel increase both comfort and stability. Padded shoulder straps and lateral panels add even more cushioning and load-lifter straps, a padded and adjustable hip belt, and an adjustable sternum strap help to enhance overall fit.
The main compartment has top loading access and a lower front-access compartment allows you to separate and organize gear. A protective lid has internal storage and attachment rings for lashing gear externally. A large front stretch pocket keeps discarded layers or other gear close at hand. Other features include side compression straps, zippered hip belt pockets, trekking pole loops, and an integrated rain cover for protecting the pack against the elements. Two side stretch pockets stow water bottles or other gear and a lined internal pocket and a built-in tube exit point make the pack hydration system compatible (system sold separately).
