Comments: The Deuter Futura pack is amazing. It sits perfectly on my back and keeps the sweat from getting my back and my shirt wet. IT is the perfect size too. I take it to work some times when I ride my bike but I mostly use it for day hiking and mountain biking. I have the black one and it is great because you can't see the dirt on it. All in all, I am very very satisfied with my purchase.

Comments: This is a great pack. Useful for around town, with plenty of ways to organize your stuff. Has an inside mesh pocket along with the outer slash pocket.
On the trail the 3 liter bladder fits nicely between the vertical stays. This design feature allows this "little" pack to hold more than you might expect.

Comments: I've used this pack for a year and a half now and it still looks nearly new.
Uses include day hikes, around town on foot and on bike to do errands and as a personal bag when traveling by plane.
When on the bike I loosen the shoulder straps. This lowers the pack and gets the top structure of the pack away from the back of the helmet.
One other note, the H20 sleeve is great for carrying/protecting a small laptop.
I would certainly buy this pack again.

Comments: Great pack. My guess is that the mesh back reduces perspiration by more like 75%. This is the feature that tipped the scales for me.
Great designed light weight back pack!

Comments: I love my Deuter Race Exp back pack and bought the Futura 28 for the extra space. It still has the fantastic comfort air system that keeps my back from sweating too much on the long ride. In all these respects I rate it 5 out of 5. My only disappointment is that the small inner zipped pockets that are on the Race Exp are sadly absent on the Futura 28. Why would you provide three very good sized main compartments and do away with the very convenient small zipped spots for easy access to things like your keys and wallet. That said, I love this back pack - and the green and black colouring goes perfectly with my Ibis Ripley 29er!!!
