I had to return

I returned this product before using it

I had to return this pack because it just didn’t fit right. I tried to adjust it, but it just rode too high and hit me in the neck. That was unfortunate because I love the running style straps and side pockets.

Deuter Speed Lite 23 SL

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love my Deuter Speed Lite 23 SL. What a game changer when hiking! I love the comfortable straps, the pouch for my water bladder, and the waste strap. The material is light also, which is a plus for those hot days. The quality is on-point with this backpack. I can't wait to take it on longer trips. Highly recommended!

Best Light WeightTrail Backpack Ever!!!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received our Speed Lite 23 SL trail backpack. My wife uses it when we hit the trails near our house. It's super light weight, and well constructed with super strong stiching. There are many storage compartments to store all her gear. We will definitely buy and use more of these products in the future, and would recommend this backpack to all our family and friends. This is definitely a winner!!!!!

Cadillac of backpacks

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had the pleasure of testing out for free a Speed Lite Series Hiking Backpack from @deuter and @tryit.sampling for my honest opinion. I am in love with this backpack. I've taken it with me on every nature hike and all overnight stays. It's super lightweight, so it doesn't bog you down on your hike. It's honestly the most comfortable and easy to carry backpack I've used. It has a flexible back frame that's cushioned with lots of ventilation, a cushioned hip strap with clasp to keep it in place, several other adjustable straps with clasps to keep your backpack stable and comfortable. There is plenty of storage space in the main pouch. And there is an array of mini pouches throughout. This particular backpack is the women's fit, which entails a shorter back length, more narrow shoulder straps and the cushioned hip strap is curved for a closer fit. They really put a lot of thought in when designing this model. I am so impressed with the quality and features! I highly recommend all female hikers this most comfortable Dueter Backpack.

Super lightweight backpack!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This backpack is super lightweight and has tons of storage room. With the hard backing material it will also keep your stuff from being smashed. The material is also breathable and doesnt make my back sweat as much. I love this backpack!

Great bag!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] At first I couldn’t believe how much this bag can actually fit. The material is so well made and comfortable. The secret compartment to store keys and cash or card, not easy for anyone to walk past and get my valuables. I liked that I could have a space for my water bottle as well. It is super lightweight and comfortable to carry.

So light and comfortable

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was first drawn to this bag because I love the color and look of this bag. Now I love it because of how light it is and how comfortable it is to wear all day. The straps fit comfortably on my larger busted frame and are easy to adjust to my size. It has plenty of pockets to keep everything organized with the right enough room for my needs. I used this bag so far for day hikes and going to Lego land.

Perfect for my needs

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am an avid bird watcher and needed something fairly small but large enough to carry a few items with me on my excursions. I like this bag because not only is it lightweight, but it’s not bulky like most bags. It has two pockets on the sides for water or your drink of choice, a small zipper pocket on the top for your phone, glasses, keys or other small items you don’t want to have to dig for. A large zipper pocket with a divider for larger items and a free access pocket on the front for items you need handy at any given moment. Two thing that really stood out to me that lets you know the company cares us one, on the inside of the bag there is information for emergencies and first aid (including CPR) and two, it has a lifetime warranty if anything should transpire with the bag no matter how old or what shape it may be in. And they say if the bag can’t be fixed, they will replace it. I love my bag and will enjoy it for many years to come. Thanks so much!

Speed Lite 23 SL

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Got this Speed Lite 23 SL hiking backpack recently for our camping/hiking trip. This is a very lightweight roomy pack! I am extremely happy with the size and functionality of this pack. The zippered pockets on the waist and shoulders are really a bonus to have. This pack also has printed emergency information inside, such a great thing to have if ever needed. Absolutely a great pack and exceptional quality!
