    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    by fromGreat travel companion Deceptively "spacious". Comes across as rather small for a 7-8 day trip but it did the job. It's sturdy, straps are well padded. Just wished there were more side pockets and I think it would make this product SUPER!

    by fromGreat Day Pack! Love this pack! Use it for all kind of stuff. Even put a dry sack in the inside once full of H2O so I would have a place to put all the fish I caught that day and was still comfortable. Has a side pocket and a type of helmet pocket on the outside... Could stand to use anoter pocket area. Cant beat the rain fly! Tried alot of day packs and this one fits the bill!

    by fromGreat backpack This is a comfortable and well designed mid sized backpack. Really like the zippered front access, the tool loops, and the variety of external pockets. The backpanel design is nice and comfortable. This pack can be pretty well loaded up with all the necessities, and still have room for the extras. The addition of the raincover is a plus. This pack is great for winter hiking, and is nice for allaround gear hauling on daytrips.

    by fromWonderful pack! I bought this pack to replace an aging daypack that's mostly used as an everyday-carry and I have had no complaints. I've used this pack for dayhikes, taking climbing gear out for toproping, though a lot of gear can be a tight fit, and have used it as a travel pack on bus and train. The main pocket is roomy enough for clothing, rain gear, a book or two and a 2 liter bladder pack. The side H2O pocket is deep and I'm never worried a bottle will fall out like on some of my previous packs, the access zipper lets me get easy access to the interior without taking everything out and helps me to pack everything up efficiently, and the compression straps really help tighten things down. I really want to take this pack alpining this winter, I think it will really hold up well. Great product overall.

    by fromA great pack, plain and simple. I purchased this product when I realized that my high school back pack would no longer be sufficient for hiking. The staff at REI were wonderful, they assisted in fitting me with the right pack. I was looking at other brands and was highly impressed with the Deuter methods of suspension and quality of the pack in general (larger buckles, etc). The one major gripe I have with this pack is a lack of front pockets (pockets on shoulder straps and both hip belts). This pack only has one pocket on the right hip belt. It would have been nice to have more within reach for items such as small GPS devices and cell phones/snacks. Overall, HIGHLY satisfied with my REI purchase experience, and quality of the product.

    by fromSo far so good! Only used it once so far on a day hike - so far I really like this pack. It feels very well made and durable - I'll be able to speak more on that once I give it some more use. I felt really comfortable while I was walking around the store checking out other gear/clothes. I practically forgot I was still wearing it. I too was looking at the Gregory Z30 but chose this instead for the adjustability and the great fit. The included rain cover is def a plus too. Only two things I'm not crazy about so far: 1. Only one hipbelt pocket. And it's kinda small. 2. Maybe it's just me, but I can't really position my Camelbak bladder tube in a way that doesn't hit my neck coming out of the pack. I tried a few times and it just always felt like it was in the way. I ended up wrapping it through/around the load lift straps and that worked for me. Overall, very satisfied.

    by fromMet Airline Carry-on Requirements! Have been using external frame pack for over 20 years, but thought I'd like a lightweight pack I could use as a carry on for a recent trip to Europe. The ACT 32 fit nicely in overhead and I breezed through check-in. Since returning home I've loaded it with enough gear for an overnight hike (about 20 lbs). Using some REI compression sacks I can carry a Hubba Hubba tent and a lite-weight sleeping bag, a GSI cookset, some food, a water bladder along with a change of clothes. It all fit snugly and I liked that I could access my gear from the top or the side... well designed product...zippers don't snag and the support system fits well and had a nice degree of adjustment providing a comfortable fit for a 5 mile hike. Overall this pack is a nice balance of versatility and cost. PS STRONG PERSONAL PREFERENCE FOR THE GREY/ANTHRACITE OVER THE RED... I LIKE THAT I HAD A CHOICE!

    by fromA great pack for tall people First off, this is a fantastic mid-size pack for people who are tall- I'm 6'6" and this pack fits me beautifully. Props to Deuter for making sure their 'normal' pack sizes will fit tall customers. As a very light packer, I don't want to haul around a bulky 60 or even 45 liter pack on my travels. This pack is simple and functional, which means it's very flexible in terms of what you can do with it. So far I've taken it on a long weekend trip and on a canyoneering day trip. Even without the hip belt and chest strap fastened, the pack moves with your body so that it's a good pack to take with you when hiking or otherwise moving a lot. It carries a lot of gear or clothing very comfortably, and the compression straps work great. Some people have complained about the lack of pockets and organizational options. I just used two packing cubes for clothing and tucked the rest of my gear into the three pockets and a small bag, and had no problem with it. Finally, the pack is very comfortable. I've had to walk miles wearing it before, and it has never been uncomfortable or awkward even on hot days. I would definitely suggest this pack and brand to anyone, but particularly tall people!
