Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wowsers! Deuter has really nailed it with this one. The Guide 40 + 10 has a perfect blend of fit, function, and style. I'm a 5'6'' woman and the SL packs fit my back like a glove. The Alpine back system is designed for both max comfort and breathability and it really works. This pack is a great size for short overnights or packing in your climbing, ski, or alpine gear. The side entry zip is really handy in addition to the bottom compartment for ease of accessing all nooks of the pack. Complete with ice axe loops, daisy chain, and hydration compatibility... this pack really can do it all. I'm super satisfied with this gem, even down to the little flower hair tie that comes with it. Well done, Deuter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-To Alpine Pack As a guide, I'm constantly looking for a pack whose weight and functionality are top-notch. I started using this pack for ice climbing and ski objectives this past winter and absolute love it! It handles the weight to axes, a rope, and skis very nicely, yet still remains fully accessible and easy to carry. I'm 5'8" and found the medium to fit very nicely and was not surprised at how many clients and friends commented on its look and durability. All in all, this pack is great and was not hung up after the snow melt. I've lugged climbing gear and a few tents into the back-country so far this Spring and it's performing equally well! For my Rocky Mountain trips throughout Colorado, this is my bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yes, yes and YES! Finally a pack for women capable of holding a rope, all of my climbing gear and a water bladder! It fits and feels great! Great on long hikes leading to difficult scrambles. It carries so much weight for me that I can move quickly without feeling exhausted. It also down poured the first time I used it and all of my gear stayed dry. I couldn't be more pleased.
