Durable pack, but not as versatile as I hoped. Pack of this caliber should have an adjustable back.
- Water resistant
- Outside harness
- Can not expand outside harness system
- Tour+ outside pocket obsolete when pack is loaded
- Pack too small for the side zipper (gimmick)
I will not review anything unless I have had the product at least a year. I find the pack does not fit well. I am 5'10" and when weighted and all the weight is on my hips a pack of this caliber should have an adjustable back.
I was hoping to replace a 2003 TNF Patrol Pack with this one. It is a great climbing pack. But because the buckles are only used by Deuter I can not expand the harness to carry float tubes, snowshoes, bed roll, etc.
I contacted Deuter Canada several times trying to buy buckles with no luck. So I will be hanging this on a wall for when I need a day-to-day pack.
I have been using this pack for work for a number of years and it has held up very well to the day-to-day abuse.
I own six 45L packs.
