In this Deuter Trans Alpine Review, I present several sizes of the series of light day tour backpacks, which is sometimes also called Deuter cycling backpack series. It includes the following packs:
- 30 and 25 liters for men
- 24 and 26 liters SL pack (slim line) for women, and
- 32 liters EL version for long men.
I present the series by using the model 30 L as an example. For other sizes, the features are essentially the same, except for small differences regarding the weight and volume.
