Deuter Futura 32 Backpack
The Deuter Futura 32 Backpack is very similar to our first choice ACT Zero Backpack. However the Deuter Futura 32 backpack is smaller in size, making it a better choice for a hiker who plans on attempting a summit. Summit hikes generally take one day with overnight stays at the base of the mountain. Summit attempts can take anywhere between four and sixteen hours, meaning you need plenty of food and water with you but not necessarily sleeping equipment. The compression of this backpack also makes it a comfortable pick for your hike. It will balance evenly across your shoulders and back making it comfortable for the climb up and back down the mountain. This backpack is also good for youth hikers as it allows them to carry all of their gear but the smaller pack size makes it easier to carry than a regular sized hiking backpack.
