Deuter Guide 45+ Review:


I cannot say enough about this pack. I felt trapped between a big 85L pack (8 lbs, bought in 1984, summited Mt Rainier a couple times, but ugh) and my tiny 25L day pack (really only good for shorter fair weather hikes), but needed something for day scrambles of 5-10 hours and summit pushes on multi-day climbs that could hold more gear, ropes, maybe a bivy, food etc. Enter the Deuter Guide 45+.
Great price, super solid construction, waterproof, and what really thrilled me was last week when I sized it down for my 10 year-old on a three-day backpacking trip. It was only slightly too big for him at its smallest (and we didn't load it full, of course). (Even most kids packs don't go small enough in the waist for my son whose waist is 24".) I was kind of grumpy because he had my favorite and my 12 year-old had my 70L Osprey while I was stuck humping along in the family truckster pack once more.... But now, when looking for a pack for my kids, I'll consider this (or the Guide 30) which will still be usable by them when they're grown!
Back to me: I really love this pack for me as well, though it might be too heavy to tack onto the outside of my bigger packs for use on summit day only for overnight climbs. On the few climbs I have made with it (all in snow this winter), I love the fit, strength, capacity, features, etc. Can't wait to bring my skis up on a climb with this baby. My ONLY gripe so far: the color is a bit blah. I'm not an ultra-light kind of guy, but will probably try to make due on an overnight or two in good weather with this....
