The Deuter Guide 40+ SL is a larger mountaineering and climbing pack which has been designed for women with a shorter and narrower frame than the men's version. It's hardwearing and comfortable for whatever you're going to throw at it and the sleek, streamlined shape won't catch on rock as you're climbing. This is one of the most versatile packs we sell, with the flexibility to cope with every mountaineering scenario.
The Deuter Guide 40+ SL is constructed from super-durable Micro Rip Pro fabric which offers superb abrasion resistance for gnarling your way up chimneys in Wales or hauling on big alpine faces. Much of the weight of the pack can be stripped, including the back system to give a stripped weight of 1340kg. The volume can be increased by 10 litres by the height adjustable lid and there are plenty of attachment points for axes, skis, ropes and gear. A bottom access zip means it is easy to get at buried kit, and the base compartment can be separated with an internal divider.
The Alpine Back System is extremely supportive but still light, providing a body-hugging fit for complete load control. The aluminium X-frame is flexible yet allows you to carry heavy loads with ease. VariFlex hip fins pivot slightly to follow your body movements, and are also removable for use with a harness, leaving either just a waist strap or no strap at all. The back also features a removable foam mat that can be used as a sit mat or for an emergency bivi and the top compartment can be quickly accessed thanks to a side zip.
