Gaia Mwrote a review of Deuter Speed Lite 12L Backpack on December 10, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
The Speed Lite series is my go-to for any activity, and this littlest in my collection is great for a short hike where you just need water, a snack and light extra layer. It's like hardly carrying anything at all! The shape of the pack is comfortable and the shoulder straps are just the right balance of padded and still lightweight. You wouldn't want to carry too much weight in it but that's not what it is designed for. If I'm carrying a "full size" day pack I go up to the 30 or 32 liter which is perfect and designed to carry more. This is perfect for a quick errand on my bike, trail hike or job, or short day hike is moderate conditions. Love it!
