Kurt loves his Deuter Futura 22 pack for biking & snowboarding...

Kurt wrote this review of his favourite bike & snowboarding pack a Deuter Futura 22:

“Can’t say enough good things about this little pack.  The steel frame suspends the load on top of the harness system with several inches of gap for air to flow through.  This increased ventilation keeps you cooler so you sweat less and any sweat that does come gets to do it’s job by evaporating to cool, not soaking into your shirt and pack.


Good stowage options, simple but versatile diaphragm divider that switches the main chamber from one large to 60/40 up down split.


The waist belt comes with handy clips to tie down your loose ends that actually work.  An integral rain cover is a good idea, though I have yet to use it.


All in all the clean, tight form factor coupled with a superior suspension system make this my go to pack for most day trips.”

I'm a bit jealous of the airflow back that keeps Kurt's back from getting sweaty!

Pros

  • Ventilated back
  • Wide open access
  • Compression straps
  • Cinches to your back
  • Dual main pocket system
  • Waist straps come with loose end retaining clips


Cons

  • Rides high on the neck when cinched down
  • Rain cover takes up space but never used it
  • Always wants to tip over when set down

Unfortunately the Futura 22 is out of production, but the Deuter Race EXP Air is a similar pack that has all the same features Kurt loves in his Futura 22 and it comes in black for those formal occasions…=-)

Note MEC still sells the Deuter Futura 22 even though it’s not on the Deuter USA website any longer.
