    The mountain is your oyster.

    If the mountain is your oyster then consider the Deuter ACT Lite 40+10 Backpack your knife to crack it open. This tough and rugged pack will carry everything you need for overnight summit bids and relaxing two-day hikes into your favorite high-elevation fishing hole. Everything you'd expect from a serious backpacking pack is right here at a price that won't break the bank. A bottom compartment secures your tent or sleeping bag, while a wet/dry storage area keeps your soggy rain gear clear of your sleeping gear. The height adjustable top lid can be cinched down when you're traveling light or lengthened when you're bringing along a few luxury items. Deuter's Air Contact back panel allows air to vent between your back and the pack for a cool and comfortable feel, while the adjustable torso length lets you get just the right fit for your frame.

    Super Versatile and Durable Bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am 6foot 3in, 190lbs and use this bag as my backcountry skiing backpack and go to bag. This is an excellent for multi-day trip bag, but for a big guy it compresses down nicely and can be used as a day bag. It is lite has lots of strap options and holds skis and skins very secure. A big waist strap pocket which you can fit compass, inclinometer, glasses and snacks all in the easy access pocket!

    The best feature is It’s ability at feel like a much smaller bag. The bottom pocket access a compartment that has an un-zip-able separator flap to the main compartment. This makes the bag able to act as one big compartment or 2. Also, this flap runs from the top of the pocket at the front of the bag to the bottom of the bag where it meets your back/hips. For Day trips you can zip up this flap, load it from the top and it distributes the weight like a smaller bag. Through your wet and muddy approach shoes in there after the approach and no worries about getting your other stuff a mess. This feature is also amazing for “basecamp” trips because you still have a well-balanced bag after your night time luxuries are removed.

    The Deuter ACT Lite 40+10 Backpack is my go to bag durable, light, comfortable, and incredibly versatile. I also use it as summer backpacking bag because of it incredible versatility and amazing airflow to reduce sweat!

    Great pack

      This pack is great for the long treks. It holds up nicely with strong zipper. It's also a comfortable and supports my back on long treks. I brought this pack on a 12 day trey and never had a problem. I would recommend this pack for anyone

      Greg, thanks for contributing to the Backcountry community! Glad you're enjoying the ACT Lite. Do you have any big trips planned for the summer ahead? Feel free to reach out to me directly if you ever have any backpacking gear questions --

      Great Bag

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Took this bag for a one night trip into Garibaldi Park, BC, and it performed great. Solid fabric and zippers, lots of compartments, and very adjustable. The "aircontact" venting system doesn't seem to do a whole lot, but I'm sure it helps a little. I would recommend.

      I see there is no raincover included, but saw some mention of a previous model being made of waterproof materials. Is it waterproof?

      Best Answer

      I've had this pack for a couple of years. I would say it's just under the waterproof point, but pretty damn water resistant. The only times I've used a cover was during a couple of really strong storms/downpours.
