The Deuter Quantum 70 + 10 Hybrid Travel Pack is for the world travelling person that considers themselves a bit adventurous. A typical travel pack, with all its bulk and basic harness simply won't do. You want to go off the beaten track.
The main compartment has top-access, as with most hiking rucksacks, as well as front-access, so you feel a bit more civilised when unpacking in a hotel room. Conveniently clipping onto the front is a handy 10L daypack which features a myriad of pockets to keep everything you need for a day trip organised. The main pack has stretch side pockets for holding water bottles, a lid and two hip belt pockets to keep those necessities easily accessible, and a host of other features usually only found on Deuter's specialist trekking packs. Most important, is the Aircontact harness system - you're going to remain comfortable even on a long hike with a heavy load.
You won't be restricted to the city with the Quantum 70+10. This is a fully-spec'd rucksack that is just as at home on the streets of Berlin as it is in on the Camino de Santiago.
I've been using this pack for 3 weeks now, traveling around Japan. It's been on a few overnight hikes and it does pretty well. The bag cover is awesome!! Really waterproof and great for transit. My only problem is with the day pack, I've been hiking with heaps of stuff a typical hiker wouldn't take... Like a laptop, woodworking tools and a bunch of other stuff I've bought. I would like a waist/breast strap for the day bag, and maybe some ways to strap things to the outside... But other than that this bag is great! Don't underestimate the size, I've got 20kgs in it.
Hi guys, does this pack have a bladder/hydration pocket??
While the Deuter Quantum isn't hydration compatible, it does have a pocket that you could sit a bladder in.
The Quantum is a beautiful pack, with the front loader and bottom compartment including lockable zippers. However if the top isn't lockable, it kind of make the other sections kinda irrelevant. Unless, is there a way to lock it up like the BlackWolf Sierra?
I've just had a look at our display model, and no the top lid is indeed not lockable, and there isn't any other way to do so unfortunately.
However, this pack does come with a rain/transit cover (which you will most likely have to put on if travelling on a plane) which has zips that can be locked - so you will be able to keep it secure that way, Laurence.
