Reviews Summary

Here's what the reviewers think about the Deuter Groden:

Reviewers like these things about the Deuter Groden

  • Reviewers thought that the Deuter Groden pack's suspension design is practically a benchmark in most packs nowadays, intended to keep most of the weight directly off the back and weigh it more effectively to be dispersed, preventing that notorious back sweat from making a rather unpleasant and chaffing packing experience.
  • Other reviewers remarked that it fits pretty comfortable on the back.
  • Testers found that the bag's engineering and design certainly justify the price tag.
  • Users thought that it is best for hikers who require slightly more than the fundamentals of a day pack and are looking to upgrade to something that can pack more without adding significant weight.
  • Reviewers noted that it features a mesh back for ventilation.
  • Testers found that it has a muted, earthy color scheme and a fascinatingly bulbous design.
  • Many of the reviewers pointed out that it is an excellent choice for a day to day pack.
  • Testers noted that it almost outshine the youngsters with their elegant look reminiscing good old times.
  • Other testers said that it is incredibly sturdy.
  • Many users who used it found that it provides stable tension for the airy back mesh and creates the ventilation space between pack the wearer's back for the moist, warm air to dissipate.
  • A lot of users thought that the pack's round spring steel frame is very lightweight and flexible.

Reviewers don't like these things
