Deuter Women's Spectro AC 36 SL Backpack - DISCONTINUED
If you’ve been searching for a high-performing lightweight backpack, chances are you aren’t planning to take it out for a leisurely stroll along an easy trail. Light-and-fast hiking means you are in the market for a pack that has well-thought-out organization, a body hugging fit and specially made features will keep you comfortable and cool. Set your sights on Deuter’s Spectro AC 36 SL Women’s Back Pack. Deuter (pronounced doy-ter) introduced the Spectro series in its 2010 line of backpacks. What makes the packs in this series stand out in the crowd is the combination of lightweight packaging and top-of-the-line ventilation technology.
Dubbed “Aircomfort Flexlite,” this innovation in pack panel design marries perspiration-fighting circulation and spring-steel construction. The result is a sturdy, moisture wicking Deuter back pack — all in a package that, for the biggest backpack in the series, still weighs a mere 2 lbs. 9 oz. (The Spectro AC 36 SL comes in at an average 2 lbs. 8 oz.). Also, the SL models offer a women’s specific fit with specially shaped, more narrow, shoulder straps, a shorter torso length and hip belts that are specially canted and padded for a woman’s body.
Fast-paced adventuring requires a reliable and easy-to-access hydration system. This Deuter pack has it covered thanks to a built-in reservoir pocket and drink tube exit port that will work well with your own hydration bladder. Reviews say Deuter’s hydration reservoir works nicely in this pack, but feel free to experiment with other brands. As far as storage, the Spectro AC 36 SL provides four separate compartments in addition to the main pocket. A stretch-woven stash pocket in the front of the pack pairs with side pockets for the gear you’re apt to use the most. Outside attachment points let you lash on trekking poles and ice tools or other exterior-friendly gear. The main compartment is accessible from both the top and the front, and the whole thing is tied up with a bow thanks to side compression straps. Stuff in all your bulky gear and cinch it all down for a smooth, moves-with-you carry that’s so important on fast-and-light hikes.
Favorite features of the Deuter Spectro AC 36 include its comfort, how easy it is to load, good padding, great adjustability, spacious capacity and back-sparing weight.
The best uses for this pack include day trips, fast-and-light hiking, overnight backpacking with minimalist gear, and trekking. The women’s Spectro AC 36 is available in one color: a green apple/gray combination that Deuter calls Platinum Apple. The torso length goes from 16 – 20” and, as mentioned, SL stands for the slimmer, gender-specific design.
