Eagle Creek has discontinued the Deviate 60, but cruise over to our Travel Backpack Review to see our current picks!
If your trip lasts longer than a week or two, this pack is a little on the small side. The volume of the Deuter Quantum 70 + 10 is 90 liters (the detachable daypack isn't included in the pack's name) giving it a 30 liter advantage over the Deviate. Further, the Quantum was more comfortable when carrying heavy loads. While we loved the Deviate all around, it wasn't as easy to pack or as durable as the Editors' Choice winning Osprey Farpoint 55. That said, the Eagle Creek Deviate 60 is an excellent pack that works really well for traveling, hiking, and even skiing and climbing. Because it is so versatile and does nearly everything well, we gave this pack a Top Pick for Outdoor Versatility.
