The Deuter Step Out 12 Pack is a small pack for popping around town. Bring along your tablet, or maybe a small folder of paperwork and get yourself to the coffee shop. You can always have your rain jacket tucked inside in case the weather turns or a long sleeve for the days when the AC is just turned up too high at the office. A valuables pocket at the front gives you quick access when on the go and the mesh side pockets hold a snack or water bottle. Big enough to carry around the necessities but small enough to keep a low profile.

Deuter Airstripes System
Deuter’s Airstripes System consists of two
contoured, air-channelled foam profiles that are covered with a
highly breathable Wide AirMesh lining. The reduced contact surface
results in optimized fresh air circulation. The channel between
the pads further enhances ventilation and provides great freedom
of movement in the riding position. Also, the pack’s load is kept
close to the body and thus won’t throw the rider off balance. On
our bigger bike models, the clever Auto-Compress hip belt system
adds extra stability: the close set anchor points of the wings
provide a super tight, compact fit. The Pull-Forward strap system
automatically results in side compression – a precise and easy way
to adjust the pack. The minimal contact surface area of the profiled Airstripes
allows free air circulation over 80 % of the riders back, while
still providing a secure, compact fit even on rough rides.
Rated 4 out of
nice backpackI received this the other day. Appears to be excellent workmanship and sturdy material. Definitely comfortable. In the end however I returned it, as it was a bit smaller than I expected, especially after a purchase meant that the 16" height would be a couple of inches shy of what I will likely need. The dimensions seemed nearly identical to my sufficiently sized Northface pack, but the tighter and firmer construction of the Deuter meant actual interior space was left. But for a normal day hike where the main things to be carried were lunch and snacks, P&S camera, binoculars, and a lightweight wproof jacket or poncho plus other odds and ends it would have been fine. The lack of any hooks or bungee webbing in the end also played against it, though I knew this before I purchased. The inside document compartment would have nicely fitted my 10" tablet, and there was room to stuff smaller docs in the front pocket. However, seeing the build and quality of this pack led me to order its bigger brother, the Deuter Airlite 16.
