Light-weight, stream-lined packReviewed by TrekIdaho from Idaho on Tuesday, September 25, 2018Took this on two weekend over-nighters to alpine lakes, and this pack really delivered. Even while I risked over-stuffing it (I'm upgrading my gear gradually with lighter, smaller stuff), it was not a burden to carry. Sizing it for your torso is important, but easy with their system.
There's just enough pockets and gear loops to be helpful but not get in the way. I had a collapsible fishing rod to carry, and the side loops worked great for that. Rain gear fit in the expandable front pocket, and I used the flexible side pockets for bear spray, water bottle, and knife.
One note: The lid does not detach from the main pack, which is kind of weird for a "floating lid" that exists to accommodate that extra 10L. But snipping it and singeing it would be an easy hack.
Overall, I am extremely impressed with the pack and very glad that I bought it without being able to try it on. The adjust-ability (plus the available women's size - the "SL") makes it likely to fit most everyone.
Perfect bag for backcountryVerified Buyer Reviewed by Denys Lakusta from New Jersey on Saturday, July 28, 2018Great materials and very reliable. It’s perfect for backcountry and hiking. It has a lot of space and I can put in it all I need for my trips.
Great PackVerified Buyer Reviewed by BTKS from Texas on Saturday, July 21, 2018This product is one more example of the excellent backpacks from Deuter. The pack is built to last, easy to wear, and ready to haul your gear.
great lightweight packVerified Buyer Reviewed by sierra flyfisherman from California on Tuesday, April 3, 2012Just used this pack for the first time. I can be fitted for a variety of torsos.
It is very comfortable and distributes weight well. Contrary to some opinions, I found the straps to be very strong and when used with some care,they should last just fine.
It has plenty of lashing points and loops for all the extras.
All in all, a very good product and lightweight
pack top does not detach for use as a daypack-not a big deal for me
small outer stuff pocket does not expand much-fits a jacket and other small accessories but not my waders or other larger/bulky items.
A small sacrifice for the savings!

Fits Like a GolveVerified Buyer Reviewed by Central Coast Dad from Central Coast , CA on Thursday, March 15, 2012Well thought out design and light weight, but includes many features. It's not just a boring rucksack. The padding design seems to be a good idea. I haven't had it in hot weather yet to test the padding design out, but the season is changing. I love the simplicity of this pack and many features = no extra weight!
I included pics of the expansion from 50 to 60. In the expanded pictures I didn't even fill it all the way. This thing deffinatly could be good for 7 day trips not just weekends.
- Best Uses: Multi-day to Overnighters
- Cons: Lashing Holds
- Pros: Back padding is great, ExpansionCompression, German engineering, Light Weight, Simple design
Great PackReviewed by Central Coast Dad from Central Coast of CA on Friday, March 2, 2012Great pack for price, simple features (no too cumbersome), weight, and German innovation. Check out the Deuter website for all features explained in detail.
To address the #2 in the above comment regarding the pad/tent, tent poles can be stored inside with the sleeping bag separator partially unzipped, allowing the poles to run full length inside the bag. As far as the pad/tent, there are lashing holds on top to tie the pad/tent down onto. Problem solved.
Great pack for one who is looking to have a framed pack, save weight, but still want some features. for 3.5 lbs and 60L, wow. Better than a ruck sack with no framing. Only one request, that the red was not the only choice. Other than that, no complaints.
Gets the job done.Reviewed by La Flama Blanca from PA on Friday, February 24, 2012I really like this pack. To keep it short - adjustable shoulders are great because I flucuate shoulder size due to injury. Disadventages - 1) Back support that is adjustable begins to hurt after a few days of hiking and can almost become unbearable. 2) Straps are not long enough on the sides to fit a pad/tent. The front straps could also benefit from being longer as it again limits the amount of exterior holding space. 3) For these reasons I recommend using this pack only for weekend trips, not weeks or months at a time.
- Best Uses: Weekends
- Cons: Comfort
- Pros: Adjustable, Light
