Should I buy an SL Pack
In 2006, a specialized team of women - designers and athletes - originally developed SL backpacks, recognisable by the name “SL” (Slim Line). Instead of just changing the colors of an existing pack, we adapt our designs to better fit anatomically. The carry system is perfectly suited for women and individuals with a narrower build because they have:
- a somewhat shorter back length
- more conical hip belts
- narrower distance between shoulder straps
- soft edges to prevent chafing.
Deuter SL Packs: for every activity
SL packs for everyday life
SL Hiking Backpacks
Whether hiking in the Alps, the Rockies, or on Kilimanjaro - your backpack must be tailored to your needs. Our SL hiking backpacks combine individual requirements with maximum ventilation and maximum comfort. Thanks to the high level of comfort and optimal load distribution, you can enjoy every hike. Popular backpacks for hiking include the lightweight Futura SL or Trail SL, which are available in different sizes.
Trekking packs for every adventurer
Backpackers love it: the sound of your own steps in your ears, only the destination in your eyes. Always going forward - often for days. Therefore, your pack has to support you and distribute the load well across your back. The trekking backpacks for narrow builds from Deuter do exactly that. With a sleeping bag, clothing, food and a tent, with the right SL backpack you can master every challenge thanks to its high level of comfort for short and long trekking tours.
Conquering the rock face while climbing - there are climbing backpacks for every type of climber and climbing. The Gravity series offers maximum lightness and functionality at the same time. A secure fit and freedom of movement ensure that climbers have the best possible advantage while scaling vertical rock.
Freeriders need a backpack on a tour that offers space for the essentials and is functional at the same time. A clear division of compartments, a simple design and safe equipment features such as an extra safety compartment for a shovel and probe are just a few of the highlights of the SL freeride backpacks. A modular fixing system attaches snowboards, snowshoes or skis to the backpack. In addition, the SL backpacks are perfectly adapted to cold winter conditions. At Deuter you will find freeride backpacks or ski touring backpacks, suitable for your excursion on and off the slopes.
SL packs for cycling
Bikepacking, mountain biking or simply a ride around town - the ambitious cyclist does not only need food and drinks on a tour. They also needs tools, a change of clothes and an air pump. Here you can find out how to properly prepare for a bike tour. With a Deuter SL backpack, you always get the right companion for every bike tour. The bicycle backpacks for smaller body types are light, precisely fitting, offer storage space, comfort and a practical compartmentalization.
For mountaineering in winter, for high-altitude mountaineering, or ice climbing, Deuter has developed very light and puristic backpacks for slim bodies. They are perfectly adapted to the needs of smaller mountaineers. When you choose the right SL alpine backpack, a secure hold and weather resistance play an important role. Weight and comfort, as well as durable materials are also important. With the slim pack sack of the alpine backpacks, the load is always kept close to the body's center of gravity and thus guarantees full control - even in demanding passages.
