Karsten Delap is owner of Fox Mountain Guides, one of the largest guide services in the Southeast region that employs only AMGA certified guides. Karsten is also an ambassador for Deuter. 

With summer season in full swing here at Fox Mountain Guides we are putting gear to the test. One piece of gear that our guides use daily is the Deuter Guide Lite 32+. This pack is a lighter version of the guide series packs due to the ripstop nylon and Duratex Lite fabrics that are used. This make it a great pack to save weight for bigger climbs as well as keep your knees healthy all season long.

I have personally put the pack to the test this season rock climbing as well as skiing some volcanoes in the Northwest. The pack has held up exceptionally well and seems to find a way to excel in in every environment. When skiing it stows the skis well for the steep couloir climb while providing enough room for crampons, skins, and a place to attach your axe, while keeping a slim profile for the deep, tight powder turns through the trees.

On the rock the pack carries well with an entire rack, rope, first aid kit, and all the other essentials one would need for a long day out. The pack has a 32 liter carrying capacity with 8 more liters when expanded. If you need to add even more room you can use the helmet holder (sold separately) that attaches via sewn loops.

The pack also cinches down enough to use as a multi-pitch pack especially if you stuff the lid inside and pull the drawstrings tight. The waist belt has great gear loops that I tend to use for rock protection while keeping slings and belay devices on my harness loops. It works well with Deuter’s Streamer hydration system, a must here in the Southeast.

The overall fit of the pack is good for medium to longer torso folks, but if you are shorter you might want to look at getting the Guide Lite 28 SL. This pack is great for skiing, climbing, and general mountain adventures and the bright colors will make you look good out there too!

  1. A cavity wall is a wall that is constructed of two layers of masonry, often brickwork,
    that are separated by an empty cavity. But you have to be able to breathe in your home, right.
    Metals like steel and vinyl are very good insulator
    and if you install seals of these metals on the edges of
    wooden door then, they will not only increase the life of your wooden door but they will also look very
    good on the door.
