    Deuter ACT Trail 28 SL Pack - Women's is rated 4.8125 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Girl's day out! The Act Trail SL is the first "women's" pack that I've owned and as soon as I put it on it just felt right. I didn't need to spend a bunch of time adjusting the torso and should straps etc. to get the pack to rest comfortably on my hips and shoulders and also have the chest strap in the right place. It's got a nice, sleek fit on my back, so I feel very agile with it on. I "glow" more than average and the back system really helps ventilate and keep the sweat down. In terms of storage �?? the pack is well thought-out and carries a lot of stuff. I've used it for climbing trips, fishing trips in Cali and Colorado, and hiking in the Sierra. The top pockets and side pockets allow you to compartmentalize your gear (like gear, fly boxes, maps, food, layers) and be organized. Maybe the best part is the zips on the back. You can lay the pack flat on the ground and have instant access to everything in the main body without having to dig through the top. Also it's got a pocket for the rain cover that allows quick access �?? and the rain cover actually keeps the pack dry in afternoon downpours! My husband has borrowed the pack a couple times for backcountry climbing trips; he's 5'11" and the pack can be adjusted to fit him comfortably. I'm glad it's turquoise to keep him from stealing it permanently! It's a great day pack, lightweight and versatile, and is super comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super-versatile backpack This Deuter backpack has definitely one of my best purchases - I love it and it is so versatile! I bought this to be a replacement travel backpack on a trip to Tanzania. I wanted a good carry-on bag that would hold binoculars, books, SLR camera and big lens, jacket, and water bottle. I would be hiking with it and I needed to easily access anything while in the Land Rover. Wow, did this fit the bill. The design fit my body perfectly and the straps were adjustable. My backpack was very packed with heavy equipment but it was always comfortable and the hip straps kept it stable. The bottom zipper allows easy access to anything on the bottom of the bag and the rain fly adds padding to the bottom. Great for camera supplies like batteries and extra SD cards. The side straps and pockets allow you to strap a jacket or poster tube to the outside of the pack. The backpack size is perfect for overhead airline bins and yet it holds everything I wanted to carry, including lots of books that were easy to access from the front pocket. I highly recommend this as a travel, day hike, short trip, and photography equipment pack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of Both Worlds This pack is something of a hybrid. It is an ideal size it for a day hike, but has enough capacity for overnight trips. I use it as a carry-on backpack when I am flying, but also for day hiking when I need layers, a camera, food etc. I like the zip-open-like-a-suitcase feature when you are looking for something that is right at the bottom of the pack. I love the fit - it really is made with the female frame in mind. The ventilation is comfortable enough so that you don't feel hot and sweaty on your back. The built in rain cover is discreet, but oh so useful when it does rain. I don't use walking poles, but my mom has used this pack and she loves the "carry your poles" feature. The flower/hairband is a nice touch, and definitely stops my husband wanting to use this backpack when I'm not around!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful pack! When you have to wear a pack from dawn to dark, this is the one. Not the lightest, but its firm frame is highly supportive and the pockets make organizing your stuff a breeze.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still looks new after 450 miles! I bought this pack a few months before summer and used it as my school backpack to wear it in and it worked wonderfully! It fit my laptop (outside of it's case) in the water pouch and held up to the wear of heavy book corners. Then I used it as my main pack all summer as a biologist technician in Alberta Canada (some rough mountains!). I hiked over 400 miles with this baby and NOTHING broke. I carried extra layers, food, water, GPS, sample kit, radio, med kit, bones, and more! This pack stayed comfortable the entire time and adjusts very easily. Opening from the top is an awesome feature for anyone into wildlife because there is no 'zip' sound to alert anything when you grab your camera out of the main pouch. Now, with over 450 miles the only sign of wear is the dirt I forgot to clean off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dream Pack!!!! I have been searching for my 'Dream' bag for years. The Deuter ACT Trail 28 SL pack for women is IT! It's the perfect size, extremely comfy & pretty too. I use it for everything; it's my everyday, my weekend getaway & my international travel bag! The front zipper access makes it the perfect suitcase.I took it with me on a recent, 8 day,trip to Cuba.The main compartment held 2 pairs of shorts,5 shirts, 2 dresses,7 pairs of undies,2 bras, 2 pairs of socks,1 hoodie, 1 swim suit,ziplock bag of tea, 1 thermal mug,1 pair of shoes,a large toiletries bag,a large manuscript & a pocket book (I'm sure I'm forgetting something)...with room to spare. The water reservoir pocket was ideal for my laptop while in transit & heaven while out and about in the hot humid weather.(*no worries about the laptop clunking around during travel, the bottom is cushioned by the rain cover pouch...I also store my med kit in the rc pouch. So it gets extra cushion.) The side pocket was perfect for accessibility to my liquids during airport screening. I can't wait to take it with me on my, 8 week, trip to NYC, Ireland & Scotland in the spring!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Himalayas I bought this for the Poonhill trek on the Annapurna circuit in Nepal. I was looking for a good day pack and this delivered. It held everything I needed and had easy quick access. I love that the whole bag opens and also has top loading. The waist belt strap was very comfortable. The rain cover worked great. It doesn't cover the straps but I don't think any raincovers do. When I wasn't trekking I used this as my carry on for the flights. I also repacked it and took it to Bhutan for four days as my only pack. I was also able to carry it on for that part of the trip. It can carry more than you think. I would recommend this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of both worlds I love the way this pack fits most of all (not all packs are made for women!). I also love the way it is versitle as either a day pack or an overnight pack. If you have stuffed the main compartment full of clothes/food/whatever and need to get to the bottom of the pack, there is a front-of-pack dual zipper that allows the pack to open up in suitcase style.
