An excellent backpack for a day out with the kids. Very lightweight, and easy to access drinks.

You might find the choice of backpacks and daysacks on the market a little overwhelming. Just what is the best one to buy? Well, after much searching, we bought ourselves the Deuter Speed Lite 20L for getting out with the kids. Read on to find out why.

Pockets, lots of pockets!

Deuter Speed Lite Backpack loaded with water bottles and flasks

As you can see, the Deuter Speed Lite has many external stretchable pockets that are ideal for carrying all the water bottles and flasks the family needs. The big pocket is also useful for raincoats.

As you can see from our photo above, the Deuter Speed Lite 20 can be loaded with the kids’ bottles. We found the Deuter Speed Lite had great storage for grabbing things while on the go, without having to open the bag and rummage in side.

It’s very light and comfortable to wear

With nothing in it, the Deuter Speed Lite 20 is very light.

The backpack fits well and is easily adjusted.

The 20 Litre storage has proved good enough for a day out.

It has straps if you need to clip extra onto the bag, such as wet raincoats.  The big pocket on the front is designed to carry wet rain coats.

Easy to use

The zip on the backpack

The toggle on the zip makes it really easy to get in and out of the bag, even when wearing thick gloves.

The loop on the zip makes it very easy to get in and out of the bag, even with gloves on. These are well made and the zip opens and closes easily without catching on any material.

The top pocket on the Deuter SpeedLite backpack

The pocket in the top of the backpack makes a good place to store your phone and other bits you might need to access without going into the main body of the bag.

There’s also a useful pocket on the top for valuables or smaller items, making them easy to grab without having to rummage through the back pack.

Straps on the bag

The straps are adjustable and you can run H2O hydration down them.

The straps on the backpack are easily adjustable and come with both a chest and waist strap. You can also clip a hydration line to the strap.

Here’s some of the features of the Deuter Speed Lite 20:

  • Front panel pocket.
  • Sewn-in reflectors.
  • Side mesh pockets.
  • 3D Air Mesh ergonomic padded shoulder straps.
  • Compression straps serves as attachment for skis, ice axes or poles.
  • Wrapped over the front they fully compress the rucksack.
  • Fast access front pocket.
  • Capacity 20 litres.
  • Weighs 530g.
