Comments: We took the Deuter Futura 32 for a two day hike down South in Israel's desert. It was great! Though we packed it a bit heavier than it might be intended for (12 liters of water/day some food and a tent) it sat comfortably the entire trek. The "cooling system" (netting that keeps the pack off of your back and prevent...s excessive sweating) was a key feature for hiking in the hot Middle Eastern desert sun. Thanks TMS!

Comments: Choosing a pack is very personal, and each user has preferences which may differ from those of others.
I bought this pack to use as a daypack (long hikes) and light "weekender". It's lightweight and well made, and it carries a load comfortably.
The back design and suspension system positions the pack some distance from your back, allowing a lot of air flow. This is great for keeping cool on California summer hikes. However, this gap between the load and your back takes some getting used to (or at least it did for me). I would prefer the back design of the Guide 35+ model, but it's larger capacity than I want for this particular pack.
I do like the bag design overall, with it's top loading and available side pockets. For me, the perfect pack would be this bag on the suspension used on the Guide 35+ model. I believe it would feel more stable when scrambling class 3 and 4 stuff. I need to tighten the suspension straps on this pack often (every 20 minutes or so, even when just hiking an easy trail) as they tend to slip. Webbing with more friction, or buckles with more "bite" would solve that problem.
Overall a good pack, but not perfect. I'll likely buy something new in the spring.

Comments: This backpack is great and I can't wait to use it on my trip. I love that there are side pockets that allow for more storage and accessibility. There is also a rain protector included with this bag so you don't have to purchase one, which cuts down on the cost of buying one.
