In a previous post, we discussed how Deuter has crafted packs specifically for women. We noted that compared to men, women have shorter torsos, narrower shoulders, and different hips.
Years ago Deuter, with a committee of female designers and female athletes, began designing packs specific to these differences to fit women better. They named this women’s specific line of packs Deuter SL, or Deuter Slimline.
Deuter SL is far more than just men’s backpack models in a feminine colour. The entire pack system is perfectly shaped for a women’s physique. Here are the key design features that make their Slimline pack series fit women better:
- A slightly shorter back length. The correct back length guarantees optimum fit of the shoulder straps and waist belt.
- A more conical shape of the hip belt. The waist belt anchor points are set closer together and are slightly curved, angling upwards. This hugs the waist leaving no space between wearer and backpack, enabling load carrying comfort.
- Narrower shoulder width. The shoulder straps are both narrower and shorter in length which avoids chafing in the armpits and eliminates pressure points in the chest area.
- More sensitive chest. Using an S-shaped shoulder strap with soft lined edges that curve around sensitive areas.
