Deuter “futura” 28l back-pack

I spent quite a bit of time hunting for a day-pack, and eventually settled on a Deuter “futura” 28 litre daypack.

I have been extremely happy with this day-pack. It has been my only day-pack, and after more than 3 years of regular use it is still in great condition. I like it so much that when it came time to purchase a backpack, I stuck with the brand and invested in a Deuter Aircontact 55+10 Backpack.


  • Main compartment and a large bottom compartment, divider can be zipped open creating one large compartment
  • Two side mesh pockets, great for stashing water bottles
  • Practical external front pocket for small items like: Spork, Opinel knife, compass etc
  • Pocket for valuables & keys inside main compartment
  • Compression straps to compact pack, and prevent the main zip from taking strain

  • adjustable shoulder straps with stabiliser straps
  • Built-in raincover in zippered compartment underneath pack (works in the snow, too!)
  • Hiking pole loops
  • It is hydration pack ready
