Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value in a pack I've had a Deuter like this for two years, three long trips in the Sierra. Not a lot of bells and whistles but don't need em. The suspension is great. Super comfortable. I only wish the main compartment was an inch wider so that the bear canister could go in on its side, rather than standing vertically in the middle. Full load for five days out is now about 25 pounds, 29 with full water bladder. Great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and adjustable I recently downgraded from a 65L backpack that was just a little too big, and whose waist was just a little bit larger than mine. I'm a relatively small guy, and this backpack was one of the few that actually fit (but don't worry, larger people; it's highly adjustable, including a lot of slack in the hip belt and a moveable back for torso adjustment). The sleeping back compartment is convenient, and barely fits my Mountainsmith redcloud +20 (15 x 9.5 inches). In the 50 L, I was able to easily pack for a one-night late fall trip (including big puffy jacket); the 10 extra liters should easily allow that to be extended. I'm not a very experienced backpacker, but I hiked 15 miles the first day with ~4000 foot elevation gain with a smidge over 30 lbs in the pack, and the next morning there was almost no tenderness where it rested on my hips and shoulders. It was extremely comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack! This is a great pack. It's very comfortable and has plenty of room. While it's too heavy to be considered ultralite, it is certainly lighter than many comparable packs at this price point. I've used it now for 2 long weekend trips and found that I hardly noticed wearing it while packing 25-30 lbs. I love the adjustable harness and the airflow channel. I would highly recommend this pack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light pack I find Deuter packs the best fit for my back and hips. I used a Deuter ACT Lite 60+10 women's pack while still growing, and now have out grown the torso. This pack has a longer torso with the same easy adjustable system and is narrower. This pack has improved the breath ability with a more porous foam, making it much more comfortable on hot humid trips. As a light packer I find the size perfect for use on multi-day treks(as long as you are trekking with at least one other person) despite other listings. It has the same simple design that Deuter is known for. The new clips are not my favorite. None have broken yet, but they are not as sturdy as the old ones. The only other gripe I have with this pack is the size of the sleeping bag compartment. I use a Marmot Mavericks sleeping bag in a next size down compression sack and have difficulty squeezing it into the compartment. Those are the only flaws I have found. It is a great pack over all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small frame but long torso I had a very difficult time finding a pack, as all of the women's packs with the longer torso had hip belts that were too big. After trying on every women's pack in the store, I finally looked at men's packs and found this one. It is highly adjustable and also fits my 6'1" 220 lb husband. I am 5'4" and 120 lbs, but my torso length is 17", so this fit the bill! Listen, nothing makes 25lbs feel awesome uphill, and at almost 4 lbs it's a tough sell when I really wanted something lightweight, but the suspension and felt wonderful and that's worth the extra weight to me. I have used it on over nighters and my sleeping bag actually doesn't take up enough space (25 degree down bag), and even though there are no straps on the bottom, it was easy to lash my foam sleeping pad on the top before securing the brain. It also has very generous side packets and a front stash pocket, and I had no problem fitting all of my gear. Would definitely purchase again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack! I love this pack! Fits everything for a multiday hike. The only thing i wish they would change is for the bottom compression strap to be inside the side net. If you carry a bottle there it makes it hard to take out and especially put back without loosening the strap. No big deal if you use a water resevoir.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack I bought this pack for my 6'4", 18 year old son, who had grown out of his previous pack. We spent 4 days on the trail with this pack and he had no issues. It worked great for him. Had a great ride on his hips and we had a great trip with this pack. I would recommend this pack if it fits your needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No sleeping pad straps on the bottom At the store, I didn't think the lack of sleeping pad straps on the bottom was going to make that big a difference. Got home and started to test pack and found that no way could I jam a sleeping bag and a sleeping pad into the bottom pocket. So, that means the sleeping pad has to be put into the main pocket or bungeed down, but that cuts down room I'd use for my tent. No bueno. Returning. That having been said, pretty impressed with the quality of construction, though I haven't actually tested it. Shame, because the value was really good.

Where do people typically carry the tent with this pack?

Asked by: Hiker05
The bottom of the pack just below the sleeping bag compartment is a great place to lash a tent. You will need to purchase some sort of strap system. The Sea to Summit Alloy Buckle 3/4" Accessory Straps are a great choice.

How large a sleeping bag (compressed) can the sleeping bag compartment hold?

Asked by: Anonymous
A compressed sleeping bag measuring approximately 16 x 9 inches will fit inside the sleeping bag compartment for the Deuter ACT Lite 50 + 10 Pack. This can vary depending on the fill quality of the sleeping bag.

The details section does say that this pack has sleeping pad straps. I don't seem to see any where I normally expect them (to strap the pad to the bottom of the pack). Am I missing them somewhere else?

Asked by: John87
This pack does not have the traditional sleeping pad straps that would keep a pad secured to (or near) the bottom of the pack. Many sleeping pads today are small enough to store inside a backpack but if you have a larger pad you wish to carry on the outside of your pack, you might consider sandwiching the pad horizontally between the lid and the main pack; the ends of the pad will extend beyond the width of the pack but it will travel securely.

My grandson is 13 and tall and skinny. His torso length is 19 and waist is 27. I want to know if this pack will fit him? There are no waist lengths in the specs.

Asked by: Resa
This pack fits a torso range from 15 to 20 inches. The hipbelt is very universal, so this pack will fit your grandson.
