i love this pack

I just used this pack to hike the Skyline to the Sea trail through Big Basin Redwood State Park in California. (Which is an absolutely gorgeous place and you should go if you ever get the chance!) It was only a 3 day trip and my bag was probably about 35 lb. It was very comfortable... I had almost no lower back or shoulder pain after hiking with it all day. I also found all of the pockets to be perfectly placed and easily accesible and the compression straps helped balance the weight tremendously even though my pack was only partially full. In other comments I had read that people didn't really find the pockets on the waist strap helpful but my experience was the opposite. My iphone DID fit in one, which was great easy access for photo opportunities. Also, we ended up getting caught on the trail with the sun setting, and I preemptively pulled out my head lamp and kept it in the other hip pocket for easy access. I also had kept some almonds in there at one point. On our second day we set up camp around lunch time so we could explore the rest of the area around the park headquarters pack-less. Of course we still had water and maps, etc that we wanted to bring so I de-tached the top and used it as a cross shoulder day bag and it worked perfectly.

I also want to mention that this was the only bag I brought for my whole trip to San Francisco... the hiking was only a small part of a bigger trip. I fit all of the stuff I needed around the city in it with my hiking gear and It still fit in the carry on compartment. I am replacing my suitcase with this because it is so much easier in the airport.

This is the only time I have used the bag so far... but I don't expect my feelings to change in the future. Can't wait to take it on my next adventure!

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.

Holds a lot, feels like nothing

Took this on the JMT and then some (over 250 miles, 24 days) and it kept the load feeling comfortable and like I was carrying almost nothing. Great back support, especially in the lower back, which I found missing from similar sized packs from other brands. I'm not super petite (though I am on the small side), but the belt cinch was completely drawn and I couldn't close it any tighter on the XS pack I bought (you buy the size to fit your torso length, not your waist). I'm glad I'm not thinner or I would've had problems. The chest strap would also roam up and down often when I took off the pack & put it back on, but it's easy to adjust, so that wasn't a big issue. I did get bruises on my collar bone, but the straps are VERY well padded in both the belt and shoulder straps and I always get collar bone bruises, so perhaps it's just me. I loved the detachable "brain" or top compartment on the pack, and having the Nalgene bottle pocket on the side of the pack aimed forward made it SO MUCH easier to remove and replace my Nalgene as I hiked. Lots of great compression straps, which can also be used for attaching things. Sits well on the hips. Would recommend.

Best Purchase EVER!!!!!!!

I needed a new hiking pack. The one I had before was a good back pack, but when I first got it the staff at REI didnt measure my torso, so the pack didnt fit properly. It worked well though for my last trip to Mount Diablo, but with my upcoming black belt test, my needs have changed. I now needed a pack that could comfortably hold up to 50lbs. My last pack could barely hold 40lbs. So I went to REI again prepared to trade it in for an upgrade. This time, the staff that helped me was great! I told him what I needed and said my torso was an XSmall, and this Gregory pack was the first thing he took me to. He loaded it up with weights, put it on my back, and I barely felt the weight. When I took it out on a hike last weekend, it was incredible!!!!
I dont have ANYTHING bad to say about this pack. Ladies, if any of you are looking for a great pack with VERY cush straps, is durable, can hold a lot, then look no further than a GREGORY pack. Best purchase EVER!!!!

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!

Bag may have been too comfortable!

I went though several cheaper bags till I found my way to this one. I must admit I did shy away from it because of the name, Deva. Dumb, I know. I have used this pack for several trips, two trips to Yosemite, the second was two weeks in the back country, Devil's Ladder in Idyllwild Ca, several smaller local trails. I had this pack fitted to me at a store, and can't imagen buying one online unless you know what to order. For the two week trip I had over 70lbs of gear.I found this out after the trip, since the ranger station had a handy scale. I tried not to faint in shock. Yeah I was overloaded, but I made the trip in shocking comfort. Next time I won't do that again. I maybe 170lbs and a heavy build girl, but that was a bit too much to be safe!

Great Pack

I traveled for 5 months through South America with this pack, and I was really satisfied. There is tons of room and numerous compartments and pockets that help to organize my stuff and made it easy to access things if I needed. It was so comfortable to wear, I went on long hikes with all of my stuff and was way more comfortable than most people in my group. The one downside for me was the inability to lock up even a part of the pack. I wanted to be able to lock up at least one of the pockets/compartments so that my valuables would not be stolen on bus rides or in hostels that didn't have lockers. I ended up buying a water-proof cover/bag to cover that pack, that could also zipper up and lock. Otherwise, I love this pack, it will be going with me on my next trip.

a great hug

As a self-declare gear-head, I am always on the hunt for the most functional and most comfortable stuff to play with. This pack exceeded all of my expectations. Not only does the pack fit me like a glove, but it really moves with me too. I have hips and some junk in my trunk, and finding a pack that accommodates my swing has been a challenge. I usually end up saddle sore with hot spots on my hip bones. Not with the Deva.
On the pack's christening trip, it rained quite a bit. The pack held up quite well and didn't slip because of that awesome anti-slip lumbar pad (I was skeptical of that thing at first).
Also, I'm a huge fan of the multi-access points to get to the inside of the pack. It makes it easy to layer and de-layer along the hike.
I'm a Deva now.

Negative Reviews:

Not the right pack for me

First off let me tell you I'm 5'1 and a size 6 but I'm a thick size 6 with hips and booty but a small waist... This pack fit me great in the hips but after taking it for a couple walks around the lake too test it out I was shocked at how heavy the pack is. The Deva 70 is a very bulky pack with thick front straps that are too short so the bottom of the straps dig into the armpit if that makes sense. It's hard to explain but the employee at REI said I'm not the only one to have this issue which made me feel better cause I hate returning things.
I also prefer a simplier pack with less pockets and this thing has too many pockets...I'd rather to use stuff sacks in the main compartment.

This was my experience, I hope yours is better.
