I had tested this pack at a store locally and added 60 lbs in the pack. I walked around the store and boy I gotta tell you that this is the most comfortable backpack that I have ever owned. I love all the features this pack has. The adjustments to the pack are amazing comfortably. I will always buy Germany brand because they think it out carefully and pay attention to details.
I have used this bag on several backpacking trips and the one thing I have to say is comfort. This bag is heavy duty all around, from straps to waistbelt to thicker material, Deuter put everything into making this bag. It's highly adjustable, can take a lot of weight and does everything you need for backpacking. If you are looking for comfort and durability, this is the bag.
This pack is great for car camping, and short duration overnight hikes. While it may be too large and heavy for long duration hikes, it has certainly proven itself going on countless overnighters and two week long car trips to the remotest regions of the country. It has ample room for storage and plenty of places to hang extraneous gear.To top it all off...look at the color! Couldn't be happier with my purchase
This is an absolutely amazing pack! I have used it on multiple day hikes and its performance has been excellent. It is water resistant, has a rain cover, large amounts of space and is so versatile.....Extremely light as well!! The straps that go around your hips are probably the most comfortable that I have ever experienced!
I'm 6', 200lbs, about 44" chest and this bag adjusts to fit me perfectly. My friend of much smaller stature owns the Lite version of this bag which is nearly identical minus some additional features and the bag adjusts down to fit him perfectly as well. Bottom line is this bag will fit most people as it is highly adjustable, and comfortable. We have very different body types but we both love our bags.Highly recommended.
