When winter conditions hit the mountains you need to be well prepared with kit that can handle snow, sub-zero temperatures and a wide variety of terrain. Which is where packs like the Deuter Freescape Lite come into their own.
This lightweight yet durable backpack from Deuter has been designed with mutliple uses in mind – covering winter hillwalking, mountaineering and even snow sports like skiing and snowboarding. Versatility is the key word here – with the Freescape Lite aimed at adventure seekers wanting a fully-featured pack that keeps their kit easily accessible on steep, icy mountain terrain.
As with every pack Deuter make, the quality of the materials and construction are unquestionable. But it's the winter-specific features that make the Freescape Lite excel during the colder months of the year.
For starters, the Freescape Lite's back system is made from snow-repellent fabric, so it can stand up to the elements when used in winter mountains. Plus, the pack has a specially reinforced safety compartment designed to hold an avalanche shovel blade and handle, just in case you need them in emergencies.
You also get an integrated and removable helmet net, a goggles holder on the shoulder strap and a fleece-lined scratch-free pocket, plus various attachments to fasten crampons, skis or even a snowboard to the outside of the pack.
The zipped side pocket allows you to stash a phone safely, while also being able to access it quickly and easily if needed. And, of course, in line with every pack Deuter produce, it is completely PFC free so has excellent environmental credentials.
So if you're climbing Munros in the Scottish Highlands or skiing in the Alps this winter, the Deuter Freescape Lite would be an excellent addition to your kit.
