I own a Deuter ACT 28 liters and I am very happy about it. I now need a bigger backpack for short expeditions on the Andes. Anybody owns the Deuter ACT 90 + 10? I am looking at alternatives like Gregory Whitney 95.

Hi, Simon. I shortened your headline for you. Hopefully that helps.

Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with the Deuter 90+10.

I have heard nice things from friends about Deuter packs, but unfortunately they are all smaller type backpacks. As you are also looking for alternatives, I may suggest the big pack I have, Arcteryx Bora 95. It is unfortunately rather pricey, but IMHO you get the full value back in comfort and ease of carrying. At least you should see and try this pack before you decide what to buy. I had before  Bergans Trollhetta 90, but the Bora is a considerable better pack. I have tried both with exactly the same weight when walking the dog in the woods. I use to have 25kg (55lb) in the pack just for training.

Helt sjokkert at du foretrekker den kanadiske over den norske! :-)

I'm new to backpacking but I've been researching a lot of packs.  You might want to take a look at the Denali 5500 by Alps Mountaineering.

I've got both cascade models and they seem to be very well built.
