The Deuter Speed Lite 20 Alpine Rucksack is one of those rare backsacks that only appear now and again, so if you want one, get in quick!
Suitable for hill walking, biking and running, the Deuter Speed Lite 20 Backpack is constructed from Hexlite 210 and Deuter Ripstop 210 fabrics.
These reinforced materials are highly durable whilst remaining lightweight, protecting your belongings but not weighing you down. The frame of the bag is engineered in a ‘U’ shape, giving you that essential stability without adding extra bulk or weight.
The backpack has also been designed in a tapered shape to allow extra movement of the arms for an unrestricted adventure.
Deuter Speed Lite 20 Alpine Rucksack Review:
The Deuter Speed Lite 20 Alpine Rucksack features a variety of pockets for safe and secure storage of essential items. Side mesh pockets provide easy access storage for drinks bottles and energy food.
Compression straps can be doubled up to easily attach a ski or pole. To compress the pack to the maximum, these can be centrally secured over the front side mesh pockets, allowing quick access to small essentials such as energy food or drink bottles.
The backpack size is perfect for training, running for fitness or fast hikes.
The backpack will hold a 3ltr hydration pack, essential if you use the rucksack for long hikes and,because of the relatively small size, running. It has useful top and front pockets for easy access.
Although the 20L size is good enough for day hikes, commuting and running, you may need a larger sized backpack for longer hikes, school, college etc such as The North Face Borealis Rucksack which is our best choice so far.
But the Deuter Speed Lite 20 Alpine Rucksack is great for smaller needs. It’s a tough cookie also with strong reinforces materials used.
Overall, we rate this rucksack at 4 out of 5. If only they would make more available and perhaps add one or two more pockets. the mesh for holding drinks is exceptional though and needed is taking this backpack for a run.
