Deuter Descentor EXP 22 Review:


From home to the airport, and to the slopes I expand the pack to 26L to hold a pair of gloves, beanies, a jacket, insulated pants, a water bottle and a down mid layer (in the external front compartment for easy access when it gets chilly) - fully laden at 5 to 6kg. On the slopes, I trim the pack back down to 22L to hold riding essentials like water, a midday snack, my GoPro/ Contour (when not attached)/ Samsung S3 in the padded front pocket, and there's still space for my helmet when I take it off to hike. I don't remove the Shield system and weight was not an issue. Overall, this is one tough pack that has seen me through 12-hour flights (to & back each), 5 solid days out on the snow, and likely able to take way much more as we go along.
