The members of our lightweight family are real sprinters with athletic fit on fast hikes or alpine tours. Neither superfluous weight nor useless falderal stand in the way of reaching the summit. The Speed Lite SL-models are specifically designed to fit the female anatomy. They allow slim women an optimal range of motion.
On average, women's backs are not quite as long as men's. The SL carry system is thus slightly shorter than that of Deuter's standard rucksacks.
