After 6 years in the Jade and a few really uncomfortable trips, I decided to upgrade to the Deva. I have a small and bony build so my Jade was putting a lot of pressure on my hip and collar bones and leaving tender spots that lasted for days after the trip. I've done one trip in the Deva (12 miles in the high peaks region of the ADKs) and I'm seriously impressed with this pack! We had the threat of sketchy weather, so being able to stash my gaiters and rain shell in the side compartments was awesome. They were easy to get to and I didn't risk getting everything else in my pack rained on. The extra compartments and pockets were really helpful with organization so smaller bits of gear didn't get lost in bottom.
I can't say enough how in LOVE with the water bottle pocket I am. It seems like a minor thing, but I like to keep my bottle filled with something with flavor and electrolytes and use my bladder for water so I do use it during the trip. In the Jade, I couldn't get my bottle or put it back on my own without having to drop pack. It also would fall out if I needed to bend over so I needed to either tie or clip it in. The Deva's pocket is easily accessible and I can put it back on my own. There's a cinch on the top of the pocket so the bottle stays put when you bend over. With the help of a compression stuff sack, I easily carried our 30 degree double sleeping bag in the sleeping bag compartment at the bottom.
The only minor improvement I could make on this pack is to add a whistle on the chest strap clip. I needed clip on my own and while it wasn't a huge issue, it was a little annoying.
The hip belt and shoulder straps were very comfortable and made a huge difference in my trip experience! I was able to concentrate on the views instead of on my sore spots on my hip and collar bones, and since my hips weren't super sore, I was able to sleep better. The Deva made my trip a lot more comfortable and I'm looking forward to the next trip with it.
After 4 years in a Jade, I got a Diva for my birthday. The hip belt is wonderful with support and cushion. The lid can also double as a fanny pack for short excursions away from camp. My Nalgene bottles fit comfortably in the bottle compartments and don't get pushed out when the pack is full. On long, hot backpacking trips where I need to refill my water often but I want to use a camelback, I just fit my 2l in the outside middle compartment and run the tube to my shoulder strap so I don't have to mess with items in the inner pack. The shoulder straps are comfortable and don't dig. I would buy this again and again. Don't let the price talk you into a cheeper bag. You will end up upgrading if you stick with backpacking.
