Nearly brand new Deuter Aircontact Pro 70+ 15 Graphite/Black Backpack. Tried on every pack I was considering during COVID lock down. Was down to Osprey Xenith 75, Gregory Balturo 75, and this one. Ended up with this one because of how it felt, rain cover included, and utility of all the features. And it just felt right on me. Was down to Loaded with features and adjustability and just felt the best. Took it on one 20 miles 3 day. Worked flawlessly.

Note, this is a unisize version meaning it has an ingenious adjustability system for various torso lengths, and really just to dial it in for your body type.

Not long after I got back I was given a Mountain Gear Hyperlite 3400 for next to nothing by a friend. Why he didnt offer it before I bought the Deuter, I dont know. But I just do not need two packs, and lightening loads for more elevation routes is my eventual goal. And I could use the money for additional other gear.

$220 Free shipping.

Pictures on the Ebay listing page: https://www.ebay.com/itm/184423744667

Highlights: rain cover included, the 15L daypack, fullzip side for gear access, stretch large back pocket, very well padded shoulder and waist straps, tons of fastening options, 3 pockets on brain, hip pack, large adjustable side water bottle pocket, .. see main specs below, and full analysis on their site:

https://www.deuter.com/int-en/shop/backpacks/p62305-trekking-backpack-aircontact-pro-70-15

Pictures represent all the main features. And two are actually my pack, but only packed to about 55L. It holds like 70L and gets taller up top as the first picture shows. They always look so perfect when packed full in the store listing. Again, very very clean. I can send more pictures if interested. The whistle, drink holder on strap, umbrella, and colored bungie attachments not included.

Cautious buyer? Dont blame you. I have a very long standing positive Ebay feedback rating I can share.
