CONVENIENT WITH SOME FLAWS
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My husband found it uncomfortable using this backpack today. He said the whole time was trying to look up through his eyeglass mirror ( he was riding his bike to work ) but the backpack obstructed the view of the cars and he had to turn his torso to look up for cars. The handle on the top of the backpack and the top of the backpack obstructed his neck movement on riding position. He is 6' 6" and 260 pounds. He didn't like it. I used it just once and I didn't have any problem, I am 5' 6" and 156 pounds. I am going to use it for a while and then update my review.

After I decided to carry onboard my flight everything that I needed to walk the Camino de Santiago (a 33-day walk of close to 500 miles through parts of France and Spain), I thought I had decided which backpack to take. After I purchased my airline tickets, I discovered that the bag I had chosen was not small enough to meet that particular airline's requirements. That's why I selected this bag. I was concerned about the minimalist hip belts, so I've been spending a great deal of time hiking with a loaded bag, making certain that I have a comfortable fit for this upcoming trip. I've been very pleased with the fit and, as we've all come to expect, Deuter makes a quality product. My only disappointment (with this and other Deuter bags) is with the central location of the hydration exit point. I'm not sure why exiting to the left or right isn't an option, as it is with most other brands. This small bag is big on features and is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Ultreya!
would have been great.
This pack was awesome but didn't quite fit all the needs that I needed filled right now. The pack has lots of pockets and organizational things. There is a compartment on the bottom that you can stash dirty/damp things in or unzip to extend the main compartment. This pack would be great for a bike commuter going to school or just needing a little of that kind of organization. The reason I decided to return it are three fold. I needed just a little more than 30L worth of space, the back of the pack is fairly flimsy so when it has a bit of weight in it it starts to collapse on itself somewhat, and lastly the torso was a little to long on me. If it where not for the combination of these three factors I would have loved to have had this pack.
