I was pretty set on getting a Deuter 45+, but this backpack is now intriguing me. can anyone compare the two? Which cinch down better to make a daypack?

Personaly...I'd go with the Variant. I've had experience with both Osprey and Deuter and so far Osprey has been my go to for packs...period! As far as compressing down to a daypack size, both will probably do about the same. The Varient is a pretty specific type pack though, more of a climbing/alpine pack so keep that in mind.
