Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good pack This pack is very well made and the quality of the materials is good. I have used it on four trips so far of two or three nights. It's great for the 23 to 30 pounds I carry on most trips in warmer weather. If my load is much above 30 pounds I use my Baltoro because the nicer suspension makes the extra two pounds of pack weight worth it. Above about 30 pounds you start to notice the hip belt/lumbar pad is not as comfortable and you are having to pull the belt really tight. The weight spec is off a bit. The pack weighs 59 oz. Without the top section it weighs 54 oz. The detachable top section is made so you can use it as a day pack, but it's pretty small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made but sags This pack feels comfortable and solid up to 30 lbs. Above that, it sags below the waist. Adjustments do not help. It's a light bag so it doesn't have the suspension capable of the rated 45 lbs. I would recommend this for ultralight backpackers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid pack I purchased the 2014 model and used it for a multi-day back country trek to Canyonlands in April 2014. I will probably purchase the new model because Deuter added sleeping pad/tent straps at the bottom, which addressed one of the shortcomings of the pack. My take: It handles a heavy loads very well despite being a relatively light pack; I carried 48 lbs (25 lbs of water) and lightweight gear otherwise and it performed great. It is also a clean design with few zippered pockets, which I prefer. I'm glad there is no separate zippered mid-pack pocket or sleeping bag compartment. The base capacity (50L) encourages one to pack less stuff- a good thing in my mind. To pack it I used a compactor bag as a large stuff sack (I ditched the individual stuff sacks for all my gear) and it held everything I needed. I would rather attach my pad or tent to the outside than carry a large cumbersome back. It also works well as a day pack with or w/o the brain. My only gripes: it needs a second hip belt pocket (larger is necessary too) and the brain could be bigger- if the pack didn't taper quite as much this would be possible. I recommend this pack despite these minor shortcomings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Ultralight Framed Backpack Got mine last year. At 35 lb. with a week's food and 3 liters of water it is comfortable and carries well.

Last year's model weighed 6.4 ounces more than specified by Deuter (on my accurate home scale). Two questions: (1) What does this new model actually weigh WITH the top lid attached? (2) What does it weight after the top lid is removed?

Asked by: beer sherpa
Ignore my other "4 lb" answer if it's posted. I had weighed it last Spring and I just remembered it had a pack cover in it. It actually weighs 59 ounces, and 54 ounces without the lid.
