I was specifically looking for something that was NOT a laptop backpack (since I've already got an awesome Timbuk2 Commander messenger bag for that purpose) that would hold about a week's worth of clothes and supplies for business trips. I was previously using a hard shell roller bag and I just prefer the convenience of a backpack when traveling at this point since I tend to travel on the lighter side. I have not yet used this bag for backpacking or hiking but plan to do so later this year when the U.S. Northeast thaws.
Features I like about this bag:
- it's basically one big pouch with a pull-string at the top and a cover. I highly dislike the trend towards multiple "main" compartments and specifically searched for a backpack with the single pouch + pull-string top configuration.
- The front is zippered to allow for easy packing & unpacking and/or access to the bottom of the bag.
- The hip belt can be stowed when not used. I like having the option for a hip belt - I use it for hiking and backpacking, but not business travel, and the ability to stow the hip belt makes this pack more versatile.
- Well balanced and very comfortable.
- Stretch side pocket with strap. Something that bothers me about previous backpacks I've had with side pockets is just how easily a bottle of water (or whiskey...) can fall out, for example if I lose my footing or put the pack down or if the pack is just too overloaded. The "bottle" pocket on this pack is deeper AND it has a clever pull-string to hold on to your whiskey!
- Integrated (but removable) rain cover. I'm not that experienced a hiker or camper so I wouldn't have thought to look for a pack with this feature (I'm a garbage bag guy) but this just seems clever. Not only is it more sturdy and more stylish than a garbage bag, but it's a better fit around the pack. Plus, if you don't need it you can detach it and use the stow pocket (outside, bottom of the bag) for something you DO need.
- There's a key clasp inside a zippered pocket on the top cover of the pack - it's the little things. When I park my car at the airport and get into the shuttle, I set the pack between my feet, unzip the top pocket, clip my car keys to the clasp, put my parking voucher in the pocket, and zip it back up. Similarly, when I'm in the shuttle on the way back to the parking lot, I can easily open the same top pocket to get everything. I also find myself using this pocket for phone chargers, snacks, even reading glasses or shades - things I need to get at frequently and easily.
So far the quality of construction seems solid. I've taken roughly a dozen trips with combined car, train, subway, walking, and airline travel, and the pack looks brand new. I would definitely buy this pack again (if it ever wears out) and I highly recommend it to others looking for a similar type of backpack.
Pros: Lightweight. 40L is plenty of capacity for day hikes. Room for a large water bladder. Built-in rain fly. Stretch pocket is great for stashing a rain jacket. Adjustable and comfortable. Main compartment zipper access is a nice feature when loading or unloading. Solid construction. Nice to have both top-load and front load flexibility.
Cons: Could use an additional external pocket or two, tiny pocket on waist belt it pretty useless. Bottle holder pocket is kind of small and difficult to reach with the pack on - better to have the internal bladder installed. Note that this isn't designed to be a lockable pack. Would be nice if waist belt was either removable or stowable for use in those "off label" situations.
In hindsight I would spend a few more dollars and stick with the tried and true pack with the spread winged bird logo :)
I deal with a company through work that has started using Deuter harnesses for their commercial backpack vacuums and the quality is really unmatched. Deuter has really perfected the weight distribution and breath-ability for us people who work up a sweat.

this just works, usual high quality deuter. really comfortable and stays cool on your back, not as cool as the mesh type that sit off your back but you do have better stability with a closer fit like this.The zip opening of the main compartment is great, its not perfect in implementation as it can sometimes be a little fiddly to do back up if the pack is upright (say hung from a branch), but all in i really like it. very stable to wear this pack with the possibility the clinch in right done to compress it to a nice small size. all in comes recommended
Im Vergleich waren diverse andere Modelle mit 40/50 Liter (Vaude, Osprey etc.).
Ich habe mir die Rucksäcke in verschiedenen Stores zuvor angeschaut und getestet. Wichtige Kriterien für mich waren: Tragekomfort, Verstau- Möglichkeiten, Material / Verarbeitung, Frontöffnung, Platz für längere Wanderungen / Touren.
Das rennen machte der Vaude Asymmetric und der Deuter Act Trail Pro bei mir.
Ich habe mich für den Deuter entschieden, da dieser trotz lediglich 40 Liter Fassungsvermögen alle benötigten Outdoor Gegenstände verstauen konnte (inkl. Schlafsack, Nahrungsmittel, Equipment, Kleider, Camping- Kocher, Decke, Handtuch, sowie 4 Liter Wasser) und bei 10- 13 KG Gewicht trotzdem angenehm sitzt.
Mit 40 Liter lässt sich so einiges verstauen, eine 40+10 Variante wäre jedoch noch besser, falls z.B. noch ein Zelt oder größeres Equipment Platz finden muss. Leider muss man beim 40+10 Modell von Deuter jedoch auf die Front- Öffnung des Rucksack verzichten, was ich nicht wollte. Fazit: Es passt erstaunlich viel in den Act Trail Pro!
Nach einer mehrtägigen Wanderung mit 1300 Höhenmeter und ca. 13 KG Gepäck hat sich bestätigt, dass der Act Trail Pro hält was er verspricht.
Trotz eines fehlenden Faches für Nasswäsche (die jedoch separat in einem Beutel verstaut werden kann), der etwas geringeren Größe und dem teureren Preis, kann ich den Rucksack nur weiterempfehlen!
