Altrec rules
May 13, 2011

The pack is great, love the versatility, lots of external attachments for gear, very comfortable, doesn't seem hot, very light. Looks cool. The pack shipped in a thin box and the left waist strap was kinked, deforming the plastic skeleton. I called altrec and the customer service agent was awesome - he sent me out a slip to ship it back at there expense and sent out a new pack right away. It's just great customer service and I'm recommending altrec to everybody.

Bomber pack
May 30, 2011

I know that this pack is heavy and ultralight is in vogue. I value comfort and durability more than what a scale says. This pack rides better on me than Osprey or Gregory packs, is easily adjustable, and feels much more durable (with more tricks) than the similarly comfortable ACT lite 65. I'm looking forward to many years of using this pack.

this is a solid pack for trekking. Very comfortable. A bit on the heavy side.

Nice Backpack

Well constructed backpack... This backpack will hold up on the trail for years... Pockets are in all the right places. Plenty of storage room inside the back. Fits and carries a load very well... I would recommend this backpack without reservations... Happy Trails...

The Aircontact 65+10 Backpacking Pack is a very good product. the adjustability is really great and very simple. this is the third Deuter pack we now own and all have been very good. it's not the lightest pack out there but with all its great features it can't be. if you're not a weight weeny it's great.
