    Deuter ACT Lite 65 + 10 Pack is rated 4.4667 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent First Pack Best First Pack I had an older model of this pack for about 5 years. And I used and abused it. It was my first real hiking pack and I'm glad that I purchased this as my first one. The pack is perfect for people getting into hiknig in that it is relatively light, can hold large loads, be compressed for smaller loads, and has enough pockets for organization to make almost anyone happy. When we all started hiking we didn't all have a 2lb sleeping bag, ligth tent, and we are all from minimalist when starting. That is what makes this pack great. It is versatile and is excellent first step in learning about balancing hiking light and being comfort driven. After 5 years though and some serious abuse, rough nights on the AT and some loads the pack was probably not designed to take, the stays in the back began to break through the mesh. sent it back in to get repaired and a week later a brand new pack was at my door. It is because of this pack I can say with 95% certainty I will never by a pack of a different brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack I was directed to this pack by one of the REI associates, and I could not be happier with it. I described my need for the pack as 'overnight hikes with the possibility of longer trips'. This is my first real backpacking pack, and I found that it was very comfortable, and it carried everything that I needed for an overnight hiking / camping trip in the Talledega National Forest. Not a difficult hike, but the pack performed well and I was comfortable with the pack for 2 days. Loading is easy from the top. It has a lower / front opening that can be divided from the rest of the pack, which held all of my ENO hammock gear easily. The shoulder straps are comfortable. The waist belt is very wide and comfortable as well. Everything is adjustable for comfort and after an hour or so I felt like I really found out how to get it just right. I'm very happy with the purchase, and I would make the same choice again. Many thanks to REI for helping me pick out the pack. When it comes time to buy one for my wife, I know where we will be going!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ACT Lite 65 Great Pack Backpacked WY over 200mi last fall in the Wind R. Grand Teton, YNP and Beartooth Mts. Trips from 3 to 6 days altitudes 7 to 12K ft, off trail half the time above timberline. In 75 to 28 degrees (-5 nights), snow, rain and sleet all gear inside dry. The pack off trail was extremely stable for boulder hopping and climbing. It is very adjustable and the most comfortable I have used in 50 years of backpacking. The thin profile helped in bushwhacking, Tough fabric no tears or worn areas. The +10 worked well with GTNP's bulky bear container requirement. Caution the clips are not made for lifting the loaded pack, use the lifting loop at the top.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for AT long distance hiking I hiked 1400 miles on the AT (Georgia to New York)with minimum wear. Finally it has shown wear (small tear)where the canvass passes over the metal framing near the top of the pack. Still has life left in it but will replace it before another long distance hike of 200+ miles just to be on the safe side. I carried an average of 40# in all types of weather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack Before I bought this pack I had been using an ill fitting backpack (growing teenager). It made backpacking a pain and I wasn't really a fan of long hikes. After much research I settled for this pack. I tried it out in-store, loaded it up with weight and walked around with it for about a hour. It felt like there was nothing back there. It performed beautifully on a 40 mile hike I did through the Cascades last summer. There was a lot of up and down, and some sliding down the side of a mountain when we got off track. I loved having the pack. The only complaint I have is the main pocket is a little short, so it's hard to fit a sleeping pad or tent poles (from a half dome) standing up. Easy to work around if you steal some space from the sleeping bag compartment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent pack I bought this last summer, but wanted to make sure I had used it enough to review it. I've used this on trips on the AT in PA/NJ & on a few 3 day trips in the Adirondacks. If you're planning on carrying 25-40 pounds, I'd highly recommend this pack. It's very easy to load, and the sleeping bag compartment is a great way to keep lighter stuff in the bottom of your pack. It also fit my tent and a bear canister quite well in the 'Dacks. Once I find the sweet spot (as far as strap adjustments go), this pack is actually quite comfortable. The only thing keeping me from giving this 5 stars is the hip belt. It's comfortable, but it's hard to get it as tight as I need to keep it from sliding down (I don't really have hips, so I need to cinch as much as possible). The fabric seems to be very durable-it's definitely taken a lickin', but it seems no worse for wear. Overall this is a great bag & I plan on having it with me on adventures for years to come.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD PACK FOR THE MONEY Purchased this pack in May 2012. Since this time this pack has been used on many multi night trips. I have about 200 miles on the pack and it is holding up very well. The pack is easily adjustable and I have yet to fill it up. Average pack weight with food, water for three nights has been about 25 pounds.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great weekend get away pack This is a great pack for the price. By no means is this pack delicate I would consider it almost bomb proof. The pack is excellent for weekend getaways and has plenty of space for 2-5 days worth of gear. The cons of this pack is that it is slightly small and has no bottom loop straps for sleeping pad. The front stretch pocket is pretty big and is an awesome place to store all the rain gear. This pack is great for short backpacking trips probably would get this pack again.
