I bought this for my wife as an early Christmas gift. She loves it! It is about 24 oz heavier than the little pack that she had been using, but the extra weight is from the heavier material and padding and the extra pockets and organizers that this pack has built into it. It is designed to carry moderately heavy loads if needed, but she packs light so her typical pack weight is about 25 lbs for a 3 day trip, and that includes her new Deva 70 pack. Once it was adjusted properly to her body she stated that this pack actually felt lighter than her old Gregory Jade 60 that she was using before, even though it was filled with the same items and the same weight. Not only that, but she has room left over to pack winter clothing if needed.
So far she has only hiked about 20 miles with it during that one 3 day trip, so we can't speak to it's long term durability, but we have no reason to believe that this pack won't prove to be very durable. So far she still loves it and has no complaints at all.
The bottom line is that she is able to carry the same amount of gear with greater comfort and greater organization than her previous pack, despite the extra weight of the pack itself.
For reference, she is 5'3" and weighs about 108 lbs with a 16" torso length. The extra small fits her very well.
I bought this pack to upgrade from a smaller, lighter version. This pack is heavy, I will say that. I used it for 3 days on a 50 mile hike but could have easily stretched it out for more days. I am 5'2" and 125 lbs...I carried 45 lbs on my back, including the pack weight. It was super comfortable the entire trip, except that I when I was tired, it became difficult to lift back up onto my back, not a design flaw of the pack. The compartments are great. My favorite was two side zippers, where I put my 3L hydration bladder. This was awesome for quick and easy water refills instead of trying to get into the main compartment every time. The zippers on hip belts were key for quick snack breaks and easy access items. The external zippered accesss to main compartment was great when I wanted something on the bottom... I didn't have to unload everything. The outside elastic flap (with buckle closure over) was great to put more easy access items I frequently used. The top hood zipper was great for lots of things as well, like my headlamp and trash bag. I really liked the right side nalgene pocket, which is angled so that it is easily accessible while walking. The compression straps compress down very tight, which is great when you don't have a lot to pack!!! great pack, very durable. wouldn't trade it for anything else.
I just got my pack in the mail but will sadly have to return it for a smaller size. The size chart says a medium size pack will fit an 18" torso, however after shortening the straps they were still 3 inches above my shoulders. I'm 5'5", which is the average height for women so if you're on the border between a small and medium with your 18" torso, choose the smaller size.
The pack is an upgrade from my Gregory 60 and it has a lot more room and pockets. The pockets on the hip straps will be perfect for holding those things you need to access frequently (e.g. digital camera, bug spray) and the extra pocket on the front is perfect for storing layers, gaiters, etc. that your hiking partner can get easily for you without having to take your pack off or try to zip closed.
I bought it in red and the color is very nice. It's a deep red that's cheerful, not obnoxious.
I used this pack for a two month long backpacking and skiing trip and am now using it while backpacking through Europe. I've put a ton of use onto it, and it is amazingly durable, even though it spent a lot of the summer with an ice axe and skis strapped on! It is worth the money and I highly recommend it, especially over Osprey packs, as the material is much stronger and more durable than the osprey packs. It also has extremely convenient pockets and holders - the water bottle holder on the side that allows you to take your water bottle out, drink and put it back in without moving your pack or asking for assistance is wonderful! I also love how easily it compresses down into a smaller size when you don't need the entire 70 l. I honestly could not be happier with it - I really think it's the best women's pack on the market now!
