    by fromGood, but the Mens' is Better . . . We generally like Deuter packs and consider them an excellent value, but this one could stand some improvement. My wife tried it and found that with a 30 lb load the hip belt felt inadequate and the internal frame sagged and actually felt noodley on her back. So she tried the Mens' version (ACT Lite 65 + 10 - same price)and discovered a much better hip belt design, even for women, and a nicely rigid frame. Needless to say, she bought the Mens', and she wants me to add: HEY GIRLS: Be sure to experiment with the adjustment of the shoulder harness attachment. I found the best attachment point at three increments below what Deuter recommends for my back measurements.

    by fromgood first pack I wore this pack for a year, originally buying it for my backpacking trip in the tetons. It worked just fine as a first internal frame pack, especially after trying the osprey ariel 65. I didn't like how few compartments there were on the outside, though. I like to put chapstick, tissues, and things in the hip pockets but there's only 1 on this bag. As I use this bag to continue to train around the lake on my town with 45-50 pounds and up and down stairs, my lower back hurts and my hip bones become bruised. This could be my own fault, but nevertheless is quite uncomfortable. It also barely fit the bear canister in Yellowstone this summer. After I put that in the bag it was pretty stuffed, and I pack light. I would also like for there to be straps on the bottom of the bag for a pad or sleeping bag. I will be returning it for a bigger bag, but it's still a great first pack.

    by fromSuper Comfy I tried on every pack in the store with the same amount of weight in it. When I put on this pack, it was so comfortable, I thought we hadn't put all of the weight in it (we had, it was just that comfortable). I've only used it a few times, so I can't address any durability issues. It's the most comfortable pack I've owned and a good balance between being light but still having enough padding to be comfortable. My only complaint is that it sits up quite high over the back of my head. I can't wear a full brimmed hat because the pack is in the way. Otherwise, I love it.

    by fromGreat basic backpack I bought this pack a few months ago to use on extended hiking trips, overnights, and most importantly, to climb Mt. Rainier in a few weeks. I've taken it on several trips so far (including one up Mt. Hood last month in which we climbed in 50mph winds and blowing mist), and it's performed beautifully. I have not had any issues with durability, and the pack is easy to load (I LOVE the separate sleeping bag compartment!), and the weight distributes well on the hip belt. The hip straps are double-backing and way too long, so I cut them off and singed the tips to prevent fraying. We also had a "pack-fitting night" recently and we actually took the X-stays out and bent them to fit the contours of my back. If you're serious about fit and comfort, I highly recommend doing this! I am very happy with this backpack and am eagerly anticipating its performance on Rainier. I think the price is extremely fair and the light weight is a huge bonus. You won't find a ton of extra bells and whistles on this backpack, but you I don't even miss them.

    by fromMore comfortable than my day pack! This pack was so comfortable, I was happier backpacking in this than I am taking day hikes with my little day pack! 1) I highly recommend going in to a store and spending a good amount of time getting fitted. I tried out several packs, with full weight, and with the assistance of a very helpful REI salesperson. This one was obviously right for me from the moment I got it on. I am 5'3", 130 lbs., with fairly wide hips and a muscular build. 2) I have only used this on one trip so far, where we were hiking with moderate elevation and no more than 4 miles each day. However, I took on most of the weight of the group, and while I didn't have a scale to weigh it, I am sure that it was at least carrying max weight. I never needed a break, and when everyone else was breaking, I didn't even take off my pack as my body felt totally fine supporting this pack. 3) My only complaint is that I like more clips/places to clip things on the outside of my packs. This pack is pretty minimal as far as these options. Also, securing the sleeping pad was awkward, there are no straps for this on the bottom of the pack. However, these are only minor complaints, and the benefits greatly outweigh any downsides. I am very happy with my selection and hope to use this through many more adventures!

    by fromFantastic pack for smaller framed ladies I usually take a 1-2 night overnight trip, not traveling more than 8 miles one way. This pack is very comfortable and I did not feel sore at all the next day. I have a small body frame and it fits me very nice. I am totally thrilled with my new pack.

    by fromgreat backpack I bought it for my first 3-day hike out in the backcountry and it performed very well! Even though carrying quite some weight it was easily adjustable and felt very comfortable. It snowed and the backpack stayed dry, but I haven't used it yet in the rain.

    by fromAwesome! This is the second pack I've owned and it is a million times better than my first (a Kelty external frame). It was very comfortable and simple to adjust. The only drawbacks are (1) the storage space is limited and (2) there are no external areas to strap on extra items (like put your sleeping bag on top or bottom). But for the price I do not think it can be beat! I recommend this pack highly. My sister carried it awhile and she even liked it better than her pack - which was twice as expensive!
