      by fromVersatile, yet streamlined I went shopping for this product to replace a bag that I was using that was my husband's old bag. I wanted something smaller than the 80 L that I also used sometimes (his newer bag) but could still work for a weekend. I really like the separated accessible sleeping bag pocket on the bottom (like our 80L), the TWO pockets on the top, the hip pocket (great for a headlamp or lip balm and hand gel), inside map pocket and the fact that the top can't be completely unclipped (makes it easier to put it back on in the morning). It's extendable but still lightweight. The pack itself seems durable enough, I only clicked delicate because of two things: 1) the stretchy thin material on the water bottle pockets and 2) the same material on the external stash pocket (though this may help a wet jacket dry). There's nice ways to lash stuff outside but not too many extra cords like you see on many packs. I got a green one sans yellow flower (nice touch but why?). I had gone shopping for another pack that had a raincover but it didn't fit my sleeping bag in its pouch, so I got this. Wish it had a raincover with it, but I can always buy one if I need it. Haven't taken it backpacking yet, but it was great on a week long car trip to CA where we were in a different place each night as well as a weekend at a medieval event holding lots of bulky dresses.

      by fromGenerally okay I've recently gotten into backpacking and have taken this bag on two three-day trips. It's a mostly very manageable bag, the main problem I have is with the adjustable torso. I am 5'2" and this bag towers above me, throwing my balance off with how top-heavy it is. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that both times I've gone out with it I've packed the 10L extension full. This bag would be great for shorter trips or perhaps traveling. I am going to exchange this bag next time I go out for one that is meant to fit a short frame.

      by fromgood pack This was a pack for my 14 yo daughter. Looked at the Osprey Jib 35, REI Crestrail 48 and this Deuter. She is 5'0" and torso was 15" The jib was a little smaller capacity than we wanted but fit well. The Crestrail was almost but not quite short enough. The ACT fit well.

      by fromLove it This is my first own Pack, I used to rent from REI and hated those bulky old kind of Packs. I used it on Inca trail to Machu Pichu for 4 days trip and felt really comfortable and was able to run down the stairs without pack jumping all over my back. Love the sleeping bag pouch and front little accessible pocket, but wish it was little bigger so I could put my phone or little camera in it. and wish there was another pocket on the other side too. I love the green color and Flower is little something to make you smile (I always try to buy everything green) :) Can't wait to use it again soon!

      by fromLoving it! I have taken this pack on two backpacking trips now, one five day and one three day. It has been great. I had a pretty heavy, small pack previously so this is a nice change. I tend to pack fairly light 20-25lbs so this works great for me. It is super comfortable, easy to adjust, and well organized. The only trouble I have had was on my longer trip which required that I carry a bear canister. Once I had my bladder full and in the pouch and then loaded my bear canister and other gear it was a pretty tight squeeze. It is mainly just a bit narrow for carrying the bear canister which doesn't give. It wound up putting too much pressure on my bladder and causing it to leak out the top. I was able to adjust by carrying less water or not putting the bladder in the designated pouch but that was a small bummer. Love the pack over all!

      by fromGreat Pack but Needs more Compartments This pack's first hike was a one night, 15 mile trek on the Appalachian Trail. This is a great, comfortable pack. Easy to load and easy to put on and off. I like the seperated sleeping bag compartment that can be unzipped to make one large compartment. The only thing I would have liked more would be more exterior pockets/compartments.

      by fromUsed for the Camino Santiago I used this backpack for the Camino Santiago, a 500 mile trek through Northern and Western Spain. The suggested load was 15 lbs and I packed this thing with about 16 lbs. and it had room to spare. It was very nice but I think for the Camino I'd go with a lighter pack like the REI Flash. Every ounce mattered on this trek since I was walking about 15-20miles/day. The only thing that bugged me was there was this creaking sound that I couldn't seem to get rid of and then one day it disappeared. I have no real complaints about this pack. I loved the two compartments. Deuter has two packs, however, that I wish they would combine into the perfect pack. Mine had two compartments and the other had one compartment but a removable lid that you could carry as a daypack. This would have helped me immensely as I sent my backpack ahead on a few occasions and it would have been nice to have a little daypack. If you put the removable lid with the two compartments…. perfect. I loved that the spine was adjustable. The other packs I was looking at weren't very adjustable and since my waist and torso don't fit the Small/Medium/Large sizing very well this was great. I also loved the hydration pack compartment. Made keeping hydrated very easy compared to the other pilgrims who had to always get help taking their water containers out of their side pockets. I later took the pack on a 10 mini vacation through Sicily and Malta and it worked out just fine. It's a great pack but if you're walking a lot for 30 days + you might want to go with a lighter weight.

      by fromPerfect carry on size! I love this pack! For reference, I'm 5'9 and 115lbs and tried a Gregory pack and felt like a pack mule but this one is narrower and much more comfortable for my not-so-sturdy frame. PROS: - The frame length fits in the overhead compartments on planes perfectly as long as the top is not extended/filled - The adjustable frame is also a bonus if you want to let friends of varying gangliness borrow your pack - Lots of places to attach carabiners/gear - Sleeping bag compartment is handy - Incredibly comfortable - Stretchy front pocket is great for layers and other things that need to be easily accessed CONS: - doesn't come with a raincover - wish it had sleeping pad straps on the bottom - side zipper or front access would be great but with the front pocket and bottom access it's not bad at all
