The ACT Zero boasts the same suspension and adjustable harness system found on Deuter's popular Aircontact series while weighing a feather-light 3 pounds .
As women's backs are not, on average, as long or broad as men's backs, the Deuter SL carry system is slightly shorter than that of Deuter's standard backpacks . The hipbelt has been given a more conical shape to provide a proper anatomical fit . The shoulder straps of the SL packs have been set closer together, are narrower and shorter in length . The SL pack is equipped with smaller buckles and narrower tapered strap ends to prevent chafing under the arms and eliminate pressure points in the chest area .
With the use of an integrated, extendible spindrift collar that provides a full storage capacity of 3650 cubic inches, the ACT Zero 45+15 SL Women's backpack is ideal for overnight or weekend outings . The experienced, ultra-lightweight devotee can even consider using the ACT Zero 45+15 SL Women's pack for multi-day excursions .
Deuter's Aircontact SL System relies on the compression and expansion of hydro and thermo-phobic Aircontact foam to provide ventilation and load-carrying comfort in the ACT Zero 45+15 SL Women's pack . An anatomically profiled X-frame system offers a balance of rigidity and flexibility, distributing weight more precisely . Further enhancing fit, Deuter's Vari-Quick harness system adjusts easily to accommodate varying torso lengths . A strongly woven strap "ladder" in the back of the pack allows you to select the desired position for optimal comfort and load distribution . Soft, breathable fabrics and ventilated pads in the back, shoulder straps and hipbelt further help to keep you cool and comfortable on the trail . Side compression straps enable you to reduce and expand the size of the pack body as needed, further securing contents and ensuring stabilization of the load .
The pack body of the ACT Zero 45+15 SL Women's pack is a single, large compartment . Internal and external zippered pockets on the lid of the ACT Zero 45+15 SL Women's pack provide access to further storage . A large elastic front stash pocket offers convenient, easy-access storage for gear or extra layers of clothing .
Other special features of the ACT Zero 45+15 SL Women's pack include trekking pole loops, ice axe loops and top lid attachment rings . Two large side mesh pockets allow for transportation of gear or water bottles and a lined internal pocket, built-in tube exit point, and tube clip on the shoulder strap make the ACT Zero 45+15 SL Women's pack hydration system (sold separately) compatible .
