Deuter ACT Trail Pro 40 Ultralight Hiking Backpack
- The ACT Trail 30 is ideal for hiking, mountain climbing, ski touring, and urban adventures.
- I use it for personal and business travel and have received compliments from coworkers on both the style and practicality.
- 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.
- Features I like about this bag:
– it’s basically one big pouch with a pull-string at the top and a cover.
- The front is zippered to allow for easy packing & unpacking and/or access to the bottom of the bag.
- 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.
- The “bottle” pocket on this pack is deeper AND it has a clever pull-string to hold on to your whiskey!<
- 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.
- 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.
- Some of my favorite things: the zipper at the bottom to access stuff that’s buried without having to dig everything out; a very comfortable light-weight waist belt that can be stored away when not in use but is substantial enough when you do use it; very firm, arched back that allows airflow between the pack and your back; a narrow profile; tightening straps for the shoulders to pull the pack closer if you need it (not something I’ve found on day packs though pretty standard for larger backpacks).
- I also have the Deuter ACT Trail Pro 24 Liter and between these 2 packs I am able to carry everything I need and have easy access to find my gear.
- The pack is comfortable to wear all day – the straps are adjustable and wide, and the waist belt helps keep the load centered and spread across your back.
- I stuffed a first aid kit, water, food, extra layers, binoculars, camera, etc for 3 kids plus me for a day hike.
- It has plenty of padding, but the frame doesn’t hold the pack off of your back like some (ex: Osprey’s AG packs), so you can get a little warmer wearing it in hot weather.
- I suspect it might be a tad long for the official carry-on size, but it if it isn’t over-stuffed, it doesn’t look it.
- The pack fit under the seat on the plane, and was great to walk around the city – small enough to not look like I’d hiked in from out of town.
- Main compartment zipper access is a nice feature when loading or unloading.
- 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.
- Would be nice if waist belt was either removable or stowable for use in those “off label” situations.
- I was looking for a light, 2 or 3 day pack and I came upon this one.
- It has “ice pick” and climbing components that I will never use, but those same provisions work fantastically for attaching gear for far less intense hiking and camping endeavors.
- The frame is light and comfortable and it definitely distributes the weight across the body.
- One of the most comfortable riding & durable packs in the small volume (35-40L) range.
- I especially like the multiple access points to the main compartment.
- Access is easy, plenty of pockets, minimal exterior straps saves clutter while cinching up tight.
Deuter Climber Kid’s Hiking Backpack

- Hip belt not ultra-padded but with a light load sufficient to transfer most of weight to his hips.
- Torso length not adjustable, but load lifters on shoulder straps did work well to vary weight on shoulders.
- He loved having a technical pack that looked similar to my pack.
- I packed on 6 days worth of clothing plus 2 pair of shoes and a bag with toiletries in it.
- It’s light, and she was able to carry this on her own, fully packed.
