The Deuter Quantum 70 + 10 is a load hauling beast designed to handle anything your travels throw at it. Whether you're about to embark on a two-month Eurail trip or you're going to spend a year circumnavigating the globe, our Top Pick for Extended Travel will almost certainly meet all of your travel needs. This pack's name is deceiving - the Quantum actually holds 90L of gear (body = 70L, brain = 10L, and daypack = 10L). Even though we weren't looking for the best backpacking backpack, we loved using this pack for multi-day backcountry adventures and loved using it to carry mass amounts of gear. We were looking for the best travel pack on the planet and this one has some sweet features that land it pretty high in our lineup. It is super comfortable and has plenty of space for all your stuff.
The Eagle Creek Deviate 60 is 30 liters smaller than this bag but similarly works really well for travel and backpacking, especially if you're a lighter packer. The Deuter Quantum 70 + 10 wasn't as easy to pack as many of the other packs in the review and lost some points in this category because the front panel doesn't open as far making it difficult to fit clothes inside without wrinkling them. If you're looking for a travel backpack that will take you around the world and back, continue reading below to see how our Top Pick for Extended Travel performed compared to the other packs in our travel backpack review.
