I've just started trail hiking and light mountaineering. This pack is my first rucksack and I got to say that it fits well and it handles load precisely.

At first, I thought that all the straps are just for show, but once you've loaded the pack you could easily adjust with a few quick pulls. The Vari-quick system allows for a custom fit that spells a lot in the comfort department and the Air-contact system indeed reduces lower back sweating. Durability and toughness of the pack is unquestionable.

I had a first timer blunder, I accidentally slid down a steep incline with the pack protecting my back, aside from minor abrasions the pack is still well in-tact with no sign of seam stress or rips.

Overall this rucksack comes highly recommended, even my friends sported the same bag at our last hiking trip, and to quote what they think of their packs..."Deuter is the BMW of backpacks" hehehe...


This pack has the build quality and features of brands…

This pack has the build quality and features of brands that cost over twice as much! Gotta love the Vari-Quick system. I have a fairly long torso, and being able to adjust the torso length was the main selling point. Feels great when carrying. Distributes weight evenly.... great balance. Also includes a built-in rain cover that has its own pocket and remains attached to the pack so you don't lose it. Nice. I would recommend Deuter packs over Osprey or Granite Gear. Period.
