    Deuter ACT Lite 45 + 10 SL Pack - Women's is rated 4.2727 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my first Having spent months researching, I finally took advantage of REI's sale, and went to the store. The very helpful assistant measured me and listened to my needs. The Deuter is perfect for me! Adjustable and light weight, the bag feels ALMOST weightless! I have packed and repacked many times to find the best advantage, and always the pack feels lighter on my back than when I lift it up, which I appreciate as an older woman with osteopenia. It accomodates everything I need, and I will be buying a raincover and a water bladder for it. The pack does not bump my head because of the variable adjustment. Love it! I like the easy access,roomy side pockets and the top zipper compartment. Also, the stretchy pocket in back is great for a sweater.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack, just enough nooks & crannies Took this pack on my first trip to South America as part of a medical mission. Used the pack to travel on the plane with clothes and sleep gear then hiking through the mountains with medical supplies and medications. The guys I was with loved the bag and were happy to carry it, too (even though it's styled for a woman). I was pleasantly surprised by the extra compartments, including those on the top and sides of the pack and even in the front (great for paper products). The lighter parts got a little stained from usual wear and tear, but the body held up without fail. Would buy this pack again in a heartbeat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wife loves this bag! This is my wife's first medium/large capacity technical backpack, and she is thrilled with its performance so far. It carries light and keeps a slim profile, which is great for scrambling and technical descents.
