Deuter Alpine Back System
Deuter’s Alpine Back System focuses on a compact, secure yet comfortable fit with
its two flexible softstripe back pads that are perfectly adapted to
the anatomy and follow the wearer’s movements. In combination
with the pack’s sleek shape this keeps the load close to the center
of gravity – thus guaranteeing full pack control and full focus on
the terrain. Further, the smart air channel between the two stripes
grants excellent ventilation.
The system combines a secure, compact fit with a top carry-
ing performance and comfortable ventilation between the
two softstripe back pads.

Great small/medium daypack!I got this pack a few weeks ago and I've been using it to bike commute to school and as an all around (front country) daypack. It's a great size for getting around town, very comfortable, and designed simply enough that it works for everything from school books to gym climbing to a dog supplies carry-all. I did fill it with 4 liters of full water bottle one day, and it carried the weight very well. I haven't had to chance to test it in the woods yet, but I have to assume it will hold up well.
The only caveat I would add is that the fancy back panel (meant for ventilation) means that the inside of the pack is almost kidney shaped. Not a huge problem for carrying soft/flexible things around, but doesn't sit quite right with books. I'm definitely using outside what it's intended use, but something to mention.

Excellent versatile daypackI bought this pack for an elk hunt in Montana and it was perfect - packed it with extra clothes, binoculars, gear etc. The suspension system keep my back from overheating and is incredibly comfortable. The hip belt was great - did the job but not too big for this pack. I inserted a bladder for water and had no problems. It's also great for an every day pack. The curved design is remarkably efficient but does limit your space for hard objects (i.e. books). I would highly recommend this pack and will be using it for a long time.
Sweaty back is something I'm trying diligently to reduce/eliminate. Does the air ventilation system on the Deuter AirLite 22 live up to it's billing?

Thanks for the question. The Airlite 22 is one of the best-ventilated packs that we sell. Deuter constructs it with their Aircomfort FlexLite System, which is lightweight, flexible, and keeps air moving through the system. The biggest plus of the system is that the suspension keeps the pack from resting directly against your back, which means that cool air moves through the mesh instead of being trapped between your back and the pack. I hope this helps!
