New model for this year (Do not check this option if this model was listed as new in last year's Gear Guide)The Spectro packs showcase Deuters new Aircomfort FlexLite System® which marries its ultra-flexible twin-frame construction and patented Aircomfort-System®.
The twin frame construction gives the Aircomfort-System® its lightweight properties while guaranteeing excellent flexibility and stability. By combining flexible lightweight steel with a flat profile body, it follows the movement of the carrier and transfers the load perfectly to the hip belt. The Aircomfort-System® is the first of its kind to be patented; laboratory-tested and still the only pack with three-way ventilation. Ingeniously simple, the pack's suspension system is like a spring-loaded trampoline. A special mesh covering the frame creates the optimum space between the backpack and the wearer's back. It distributes weight evenly and keeps the weight of the pack off the back -- moist air can freely escape through the three-sided system, preventing heat buildup. Additional ventilation is assured via anatomically formed shoulder straps and sturdy waist belts with perforated foam and large-celled 3D AirMesh linings.
The Spectro AC packs feature: hydration compatibility, stuff-it front pocket; mesh diagonal side pockets compression straps; hiking poles and ice ace loops and sternum straps. No more rummaging around for your gear the two-way zip on the front allows direct access to the entire pack even when the lid is closed.
