Deuter Aircontact 65+10
By S. Dee Davis
It’s not technically an ultralight pack – that’s a different top-ten list for a different time – but this pack sure does feel that way. Checking in at less than four pounds, it still can pack nearly 4,000 cubic inches worth of gear in its two compartments. The suspension features a hollow foam that actually pumps air in and out, helping with ventilation in those sweaty areas up against your back. It also has dual ice axe loops and external mesh tie-down straps for your extra toys. This pack is available for $150 to $250.
- Capacity: 3,950 cubic inches
