Deuter Futura 30 SL

A very comfortable rucksack with a superb padded harness. The pull-forward waist belt system is excellent, and there’s plenty of adjustment in the chest strap. We really like the cool, stable and comfortable back system. A superb pack that’s roomy for its 30 litres, with a split main compartment and a useful array of pockets, including a large one in the lid.
