Deuter Speed Lite 10 Alpine Rucksack Review

Deuter Speed Lite 10 Alpine RucksackWhen out walking or on a cycling trip, we don’t always want a great humping backpack that can sometimes be just…awkward! This is where the Deuter Speed Lite 10 Alpine Rucksack comes in.

With a 10L capacity you can get all your essentials in and can also use it with a hydration pack. There are two compartments, the main one which can fit in your drinks, spare lightweight raincoat, GPS and even a small amount of shopping! It’s surprising how much a 10L space can carry.

The other compartment is good for your wallet, keys, maps, and other small items that tend to be carried when out and about.

The fit is comfortable as the Deuter Speed Lite 10 Alpine Rucksack is so light. On the outside you have 2 side mesh pockets and strong zips with handy pull loops.

This backpack is also hydration pack compatible and with a 2 litre water bladder added, you really have the perfect backpack for day hiking and cycling. There is also a 20L version which may be the choice for longer hikes, along with a 15L and 30L version.

It’s also an excellent choice for summit climbs where you just need the minimum of equipment with you.

Another great way to use this Deuter backpack is attending sporting event where you’re going to be out all day, such as a cricket match, or a day at the races. It’s also excellent for cycle users as you can hardly feel it on your back.

We give the Deuter Speed Lite 10 Alpine Rucksack a solid 4.5 out of 5 with the only little gripe being its price. Some may say the £40+ price a little steep, but with a Deuter, you know you’re going to get a quality product.
