Protection and provisions, for downhill demolition.
Charge downhill trails on your mountain bike a little faster and a lot more confidently with Deuter's Attack 20 Backpack protecting your back. Boasting a high safety standard certified by TÜV/GS, the Attack's Shield System uses viscose-elastic foam to absorb shock from harsh impacts, and you can remove it if you like to live dangerously. Deuter molded the shoulder straps to move with you, and there's enough padding at the waist belt to keep you comfy.
The Attack also features a hydration sleeve compatible with your three-liter bladder, and there's a helmet holder suitable for full-face brain buckets. Deuter also added a rain cover to protect your gear from wet weather, and the waist belt has zippered pockets for protein bars. There are more pockets for valuables, electronics, and water bottles, too.

90% Disappointing, Not a Grocery Getter
I'll start with the 2 good things about this pack,
#1- the padded back shield design/system...only problem is that you could never fit enough weight inside the backpack to justify having so much support.
#2- hopefully you can return it like I'll be doing soon.
Here are the bad things: It's tiny for an adult bp, idk what 20L is supposed to suggest- I was thinking the L was for Liters....like volume and you'd be stretching it to get a 2 liter bottle of soda in the main compartment.
The pics, description and the review before mine are horribly misleading. Show me a pic like the ones attached to the bag- like the 2 or 3 pics that show this child size backpack on a normal sized adult, that way I'll know not to waste my time! The description measurements are way off. I think they might have confused in. with cm. like the volume thing? The one other review, I'm guessing, is an ad/robot.
When I saw the size of the box I thought, sweet!, now I can go load up on groceries..... I'd have to ride to the store 2 times a day and you could fit 6-10 of these "backpacks" in that box! (sad) . It looks really good stuffed with balled up paper tho.
My other problems with this product are pretty basic to packs. Too many- especially WAY too many straps and hooks on this one. You're not going to be able to fit anything in this pack that justifies having tons of extra straps and hooks and added back support.
They are of a bad thought and design as well- very small, very thin. Metal zip and thin plastic zip teeth. I'm a bicycle commuter, I want and need something big, comfortable, durable and maybe reflective. I'm considering buying a pack made by the same company- only bigger, but the zippers worry me. They look/feel weak. They got the comfort part right but the other 3 things were severely overlooked, especially CAPACITY. I paid for a nice piece of luggage and got a fanny pack with 2 extra straps. wtf

The Deuter Attack 20 can carry a ton of gear. I'm an xc rider but wanted a little bit larger pack since I carry camera gear every now and again. The Deuter is by no means a light weight pack. It's burly and will take a beating. I removed the shield foam in the pack and it lightened it up quite a bit. The bag alone is still fairly heavy but it makes up for that in comfort. The padded shoulder straps are soft and supportive and the waist strap is well thought out and easy to adjust. The back ventilation is decent but I get hot easily so it may not be a problem for you. Regardless I don't feel like my back is soaking wet. Organization inside the pack is nice and there are several little zippered pockets and other pouches that hold your gear. Another nice touch is a zippered cell phone pocket that you can easily reach while the pack is on (it's on the right side of the pack). If you're looking for a pack that can carry a ton of gear, be comfortable, and look good while doing it, look no further.
Is there a separate compartment for the hydration bladder?
Can you remove the SAS-TEC armor pad?
