Love it!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I absolutely love this pack! I have a pretty small frame (5'3 and 118 lbs) so it's typically hard for me to buy gear that fits right. This pack fits me perfectly. It is lightweight and the perfect size for skiing/winter mountaineering. This pack also has all the bells and whistles (pockets, zippers, and straps/loops in all the right places). You can tell it was designed by someone who has extensive experience in the outdoors.

I never knew packs could fit so well!

    The first time I loaded this pack up and put it on I fell in love! It fit me so securely, I felt like I could do cartwheels. There is just enough room for rain gear, down jacket, shovel/probe, extra gloves/hat, the essentials (sunglasses, sunscreen, headlamp, compass/map, emergency extras, etc.), food, and water. I can strap on a pair of snowshoes, ice ax, and crampons to the outside and I'm ready to rock for an entire day in the backcountry.

    I do wish the hip pocket was a tad larger. Deuter could fix this on all their packs, I think. The lid is also firmly attached to the pack in the back (i.e. it doesn't float), which makes adding that last piece of gear challenging.

    If you're looking for a smallish day pack, you can't go wrong with this one.


      Love this pack. I'm small and always struggle with pack and other gear fit. This one fits great! I use it year round mountain hiking, traveling and especially ski touring. It conveniently carries snowshoes and skis with little fiddling. That's great when having to put skis on and off during a hike. The only concern is durability. It is already showing signs of wear at the bottom after less than one year of use. Overall, a great pack.

      I am 5' 5", my back length is 18". After reading some of the comments I was wondering if this pack would be too short for me. Also the picture with the snow shoes attached, where are the bindings?

      How long is the actual frame of this pack?...

      How long is the actual frame of this pack? From the Deuter website, I see the dimensions are 23"x11"x8". This is slightly longer than most airlines allow as carry ons. Is there any chance I can get a pack that isn't filled completely through airline security by squishing down the top a bit? Thanks!
