Caesar Anthony P.wrote a review of Deuter Futura Vario 50+10 Backpack - 3050cu in on July 2, 2011
1st gen Vario Futura 50+10 still serving me well since it came out, from tropical (wet and hot) to Northern (cold) and has not shown any fatigue, in fact it looks pretty new.
Tough and rugged.
Squeaky when heavily loaded (>45lbs).
I'll upgrade soon to another Deuter, but just because I need a bit more space for winter gear.
