The Deuter Aircontact Lite 40+10 features the AirContact Lite Back System which allows the backpack and wearer become one. The body contact system brings the weight close to the body and therefore close to the center of gravity. This results in full pack control and an effective load transfer. Furthermore, the Aircontact cushions made from special hollow chamber foam guarantee fantastic ventilation due to the pump effect of every movement.
The Result: Up to 15 % less perspiration as with a standard compact back system (proven in tests conducted by Gabriel L.&T and the University of Erlangen) – combined with outstanding load transfer and a secure, perfectly balanced fit.
