Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Backpacking Pack! Originally bought this pack for a 30 mile weekend backpacking trip through the Ouachita National Forest. This pack had no problem carrying a 3 person tent, sleeping bag, food, 4 changes of clothes (pants and shirts), rain jacket, and rain pants, other misc items, and about 5 liters of water. The entire first day was all rain, so the included rain protector was worth its weight in gold. Everyone else in my group used trash bags and all their gear got wet. I got to go to sleep in a nice dry tent. I originally had a problem with the top buckle hood being too close to me and pushing my head down which made my neck sore. However, during a hiking break, I discovered I had had pulled the buckles on my side too far and the ones on the back of the pack not enough. After correcting this, the pack has been a dream. I use it now on other weekend backpacking excursions or when I'm traveling. People see me wearing it and assume I'm going on some sort of coming-of-age expedition through Europe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs exterior tethering points The biggest complaint I have about this bag is the fact that it has no exterior tethering loops other than on the cap. Other than walking stick loops and an Ice ax loop there is no way to tie gear onto the bottom or sides. I found myself clipping and hanging items on the straps and buckles. It could use a couple more exterior pockets also. Basically if it does not fit inside the bag or one of the few pockets you have to get creative. A 450 bear fits both upright or sideways in the middle of the bag. Im going to keep this bag for short trips into places like the Grand Canyon where the Bear can will stay home. Treat this bag like it is on a 50 ct and use the expandable 10 flap to seal the top. I would say this is a 3 day max bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great organization and accessibility I got this pack for 6 months traveling and backpacking in South America. Now after completing my travels and doing various treks of 2-8 days for an average of 15 Kms a day in various climates. I am not happy with this pack and will return it and go back to my old osprey pack. Originally I loved the mashed back system, the various pockets and front top and bottom access! Unfortunately this pack doesn't have good support to carry weight of 10-15 kg (20-30 lbs.) even though Deuter market it to carry such loads. The last thing I ended up not appreciating is the adjustment of the back system. At first it seemed simple and genius, but practically it is not so useful, as in wet conditions the strap is loosening while walking and it makes annoying squeaking sound at every step. overall this pack is great if you carry very light loads, but than the capacity of 50+10 doesn't make sense...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and versatile Very comfortable fit.The access to all the compartments is nice, if I only remembered where I put what I was looking for. I have taken it for a test drive in the Great Bear Wilderness and so far so good. The pockets on the side are great for water bottles and everything else.

Will this qualify as carry-on luggage on a plane?

Asked by: mrjlevin
This bag would likely be too large to be used for a carry-on. Most airlines allow carry-on baggage not exceeding 45 linear inches (L+W+H). This is subject to change, so we always recommend to check your airline for actual size restrictions.

Im thinking for a winter days hike ,can womens 45 be used by men? Whats the main difference, is there anatomical diferences?

Asked by: Hikear
The women's version of the pack does have anatomical differences with both the hipbelt and shoulder straps making it more comfortable for women. If you find that a woman's pack is more comfortable for you, you are welcome to use it.
