Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Deuter Speed Lite 20 Pack

(1/1)

Comfortable to wear on back or even the front on your chest. Zipper pulls are smooth and never snag.

Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/1)

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

Deuter Speed Lite 20 Pack

(1/3)

I plan to use it for hiking in the mountains in Spain this summer. Should hold lunch, water, a light raincoat, light towel, and a swimsuit. Only disadvantage is that the side outside pockets are not transparent so I can't put the flashing red lights in it that I use when walking to the University in the early morning hours; both the Deuter 26 and Deuter 15 have mesh pockets that are ideal for that purpose. But the Deuter 20 (which is what I am reviewing) is very light weight and I am very happy with it so far

Carry-on

Deuter Speed Lite 20 Pack

(1/1)

Final thoughts: All things said I love the bag, but will scope out the 20L one. I have filed for a return, so if you'd like a deluge of images of me shoveling various things in it for the next 15 days or so to get a sense of what all can fit, then send me a message; I'll try and entertain them.

Size

Deuter Speed Lite 20 Pack

(1/3)

I bought this backpack because I need a "small" 20L for my daily use (office, commuting, everyday carry) and ULTRA LIGHT.

Strap

Deuter Speed Lite 20 Pack

(1/1)

15 liter Deuter, green for female, 5’8”, 140 lbs, C cup (—related to fit with backpack straps) Pros -Light and sturdy. -Easy to pack it inside suitcase (for travel) -Functionally “large enough” small top pocket for wallet, keys, energy bar, smal headphones, etc. -Very comfy even when chock full with water bottles (I have terrible back problems) -Fit well (female, 5’8”, 140lbs, mid-broad shoulders, C cup) -15 Liters big enough for light rain jacket, headlamp, light jacket or Down light jacket, small book, large Bose on-ear headphones/case, snacks, with room -fits 2012 ipad. -nice green color Cons -No front open “shovel” mesh stash pocket or daisy chain to add stretch cords for make-shift stash place—this is the biggest drawback -pack gradually tapers on the bottom which is almost indiscernible from inside, but the little plastic clasps that attach the light weight “belt” on the bottom of the back panel are mildly and periodically annoying
