Just don't leave your trail mates behind.
You like to set a quick pace, so you like a quick bag. The Deuter Speed Lite 20 Backpack is an ultralight, speed-friendly pack that will hold your essentials and keep you zipping up switchbacks—you'll just have to worry about your buddies keeping up. The wraparound compression straps minimize your pack's profile, reducing excess jostling when you're going fast, and the athletic V-shape keeps the center of gravity high for optimum movement. Ventilated mesh at the back and along the shoulder straps keep you cool and dry from trail head to lunch stop, and if you need to verify you're on the right path while you're waiting for your crew to catch up, stretch pockets provide easy access to your map and an energizing snack to keep you going.

Still going strong
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have the Speedlight 20 "S30" version of this pack but they're so similar I really thought writing a review about the durability would be the best thing to help someone in deciding. Yes, they both have most of the same features but it's the Deuter craftsmanship that should be the selling point. I've summited peaks from Washington to Banff with this thing. Dropped it on rockbands, scraped it up, put it in the mud, slide on my butt down snowslopes with it...it's indestructible. Actually everything I've bought from Deuter is. This is a fantastic buy, and you'll get your moneys worth just for how long it will last.
Perfect for day hikes
This 20L pack is light weight, yet roomy enough to hold all the essentials for an all day hike. Very comfortable and practical. My 3L Platypus bladder fits just fine. Everything I’d expect from Deuter.
