Speed Lite 22 SL
I travel a lot with one International carry on and need a backpack that can accommodate all my extra items. My list: Camera in bag, 10.5"iPad Air, extra shoes, make up bag, chargers, 2 pair of glasses in. cases, small moleskin note book, misc small items, travel pharmacy (think quart size bag), Bose head phones, and small cross body purse and an 18 oz hydroflask. ALL of that needs to fit in a back pack...I know I'm asking a lot but hey, that's what I need. I ordered 17 backpacks and test packed all of them. This was a loser! I ended up buying the Victornox Sport Pilot because everything fit comfortably with a little room to spare!

This pack is perfect for our 20 month old- it is tiny, but that's exactly what we needed for our little one to carry on his back. It is only 5L as opposed to other kids packs that are 10L or 15L- they're too big for our little one. It is large enough to hold a water bottle, a sweatshirt, and a snack. Our little one also uses the pack for his daily heavy work when he needs to carry things around to help him with sensory input. Plus the semicircular zipper is my preference- I hate backpacks that open at the top with a drawstring and you have to dig around to find whatever is at the bottom. Excellently padded, comfy straps, and super cute design. I do wish that it didn't have the characters on it but you can't win 'em all- and at least the animals are happy. It's a winner for us!

A very light backpack. Unfortunately the straps do not have enough padding and are too thin, so they dig into my shoulders, so I returned the item.

I ended up keeping this backpack out of all the ones I tried out. I like it a lot for these reasons: hip pockets, water bottle space, water bladder sleeve, closures, great zippers. I wish that the pack, was woman-sized for the women of today, though. The pack fit ok, and the men's fit certainly did not work. The hip pockets and shoulder straps could be farther apart. I also though that the v-shape made packing it awkward: there was a small base but big top. Forget getting to the bottom if you've filled it halfway. I used it as my only bag to travel Europe for three months, and it held up well. I think it will be a great summer pack (I traveled during the winter months).

So excited to use this bag. I was looking for a bag that would hold 2 weeks of travel items and be able to hoist it on my back for metro stairs and cobblestones in Europe, Essentially for those times when a rolling bag is a hassle. This bag seems to fit the bill. I had been using a Travel Pro 26" roller bag that I calculated to be 3,000 cubic inches so this bag is about the same volume as that large bag (even a little larger at 3,660 cu in). I have not taken it on a trip yet, but I packed up all my stuff as if I was going on a trip and carried it around the house. The back pack straps are comfortable even with a full load AND it comes with a hip strap which is super important when you are carrying a heavy load. Usually my bag weighs about 35-45 pounds when I travel (so I don't plan to carry it long term but just when I need to). The wheels are large and study and the bag rolls easily. The straps and hip belt are tucked away into a zippered compartment at the back of the bag. Only test now is to see how it manages to hold up being tossed around by the airlines.

comfortable and stylish. haven't used it for hiking yet.

I got this as my day hiking pack. I wanted something small to carry water bottles, lunch, extra clothes, etc. This backpack gets used nearly every weekend. It never gets fully unpacked - it has a permanent spot by the door where I can grab it on my way out. The pack has been abused but still looks new. I’ll buy another Deuter if I ever manage to destroy this one.

I purchased this to replace my older black Speedlite Pack. Unfortunately this pack was much less ruggedly built than my older pack. Material, zipper pulls, zippers, etc, seemed quite flimsy compared to older pack. Will send back.

The bag was well made, light, and a nice color. Unfortunately, it didn't fit. It didn't fit my younger smaller daughter either so I had to return it.

Good quality, well made, relatively light weight and out of 6 different ladies backpack I tried, this one fit my torso the best. I am 5'5" and weigh 138 lbs. I will use it as an overnight bag/carry-on for the first half of a trip over seas then as a backpack while hiking. I will not be using a hydration bladder as I will use Bobble 22 oz. filtering water bottles. I find the side pockets are not deep enough to hold the bottles in place securely, but the cinch straps will take care of that. Smaller water bottles should be secure in the pockets, though. The pockets on the waist/hip belt are not big and bulky like other packs I tried... They should be perfect for small items... lipstick, small comb, breath strips and my "can't do without" cloth handkerchief. My iPhone SE fits easily in the pocket, too. I have to say that I LOVE the black with pink zippers... it had my name written all over it!

Well made, light weight and fit my curved back. My only objection is that the water bottle pockets are not deep enough and do not have cinch straps like the Deuter Speed Lite 22 SL has to hold them in.

I should have read the reviews before I purchased this. Like the other reviewer said, this back pack is small. No, not small - it' tiny. This back pack would be appropriate for a one year old. Seriously. This is not a school back pack. It's more like a toy for a very little child. My daughter is five and we took one look at it and started laughing. Well, I laughed, she cried.

Very cute but very small. Not a school backpack

Very cute little backpack. Wonderful color. Perfect size for a small bottle and a snack.
