Great backpack. Very spacious, I brought this pack to Norway for two 3-day backcountry ski tours. Big enough to fit all my ski/camp gear. I especially like the sleeping bag pocket in the bottom which held my big 0-deg bag, air mattress and camp pillow. Very comfortable and stable on my back and there are all sorts of adjustments to customize fit. The pack is very compressible for the quick weekend trips. The raincover is big too, it fit over my sleeping pad, ski poles, ski boots, shovel, and probe, all mounted to the outside of the pack. My only gripe was the lack of clips in the two H2O pockets. When you put your water bladder inside, they sag under their weight which is mildly annoying. But all in all this is a great pack and I'll be no stranger to Deuter for smaller packs as well.
