Reviews - Deuter ACT Lite 65+10 Backpack
I love this pack. I've used it for everything from Lightweight summer trips on the A.T. to winter trips up Mt. Washington. The Good: - Super adjustable. I can dial in the torso more so than any other pack I have tried. And I can loan it to my wife or son with no trouble. - Lightweight, but can carry a heavy load. I think the 45 lb limit is pretty accurate. I wouldn't want to carry more. - Plenty of organization, but still a streamlined simple design without excess straps everywhere. - Hip Belt pocket! This is a must for me :) - Nice and cool on the back for hot summer trips. The Kinda Bad: - The stitching started to come undone on the front shovel pocket after the first time I used it. Nothing structural, but it had me worried about the packs durability. No worries though, even after some rugged trips the rest of the pack is solid. - The side pockets could be bellowed a bit more. if the pack is stuffed full, it's hard to stretch them to fit a bottle. - The hip belt pocket is a little small making it a little hard to get things in and out. BUT...This also keeps it from rubbing on your arms if you let them swing by your sides. Overall it is a well thought out pack with attention to little details that make it nice. The combination of lightweight, great adjustability, load carrying capacity and price, make this a hard pack to beat.
Love the big pocket on the front. Very practical. Pack is just as strong as it needs to be for a lightweight pack. I've used with up to 50 lbs of gear. (though I wouldn't attempt anything beyond that).
I bought this pack for use from short (3 days) to long (2+ weeks) trekkings and I'm really satisfied about its size, confort and weight. Its such a great pack!
