What customers say about "Features"
Deuter Aircontact 65+10 Backpacking Pack
  • The Vari-Quick back length adjustment makes it so easy to fine tune the perfect fit for myself and also share this pack with shorter friends.
  • Great pack for the money. Plenty of storage, enough organization to keep things separated, and the straps and belt are quite comfortable.
  • This backpack is my go-to for any backcountry trip. Even though this pack only weighs 4lbs 6oz, it is durable and filled with functional features.
Deuter Futura Vario 50+10 Hiking Backpack
  • The straps are easily adjustable, making it a breeze to adjust it to your own body size. The pack did not make me too hot when I was wearing it, which is a great feature for those long hikes!
  • This is such a well thought out bag, I'm very impressed with the level of thought and engineering that went in to it.
  • Very adjustable and easy to get on and off with no slippage noted when hiking. More than adequate padding to make for a comfortable experiance.
  • This pack fits a large amount of equipment and has all the straps and zippers and compartments you'll need to spend multiple days in the back country.
  • While I do wish it came with more accessories and offered in a wider range of color choices, I am unable to find much fault with this fantastic backpacking backpack!
