Strength:

- Many pockets
- Pockets within pockets
- Water pack ready
- Normal helmet can be stored on back
- Fullface can also be stored on back, but you need additional straps
- Perfect fit through multiple adjustment straps
- Lots and lots of pockets

Weakness:

- Can get hot, though not as hot as you fear
- Carries a fullface only with additional straps

Since my Deuter Race was too small for longer tours, especially in the Alps where I needed additional clothing, protectors and helmets, I bought the Transalpine 30. I don't regret it.

It's easy to adjust for a perfect fit due to the multitude of straps, so it always sits snugly but not too confining.

It has lots of easily accessible pockets, often with more nets or pockets inside, closed by zippers. You can access the main storage either from top or bottom. A raincover is included and can be removed completely for cleaning.

It has a few straps that carry a normal helmet, but in order to carry a fullface you need to buy additional longer straps, but then that works as well. Maximum load I once had where fullface, elbow protectors and an entire protector jacket. Plus the usual stuff of first aid bag, water, minitool, etc. A bit cumbersome, but once you get to the top of the trail, you're glad you didn't have to actually wear the whole outfit on your way up.

If they ever come up with a backpack that has better support for fullface helmets, buy that one. Until then, the transalpine is the perfect backpack.

Strength:

Durable, great layout, rain cover, great adjustability, zippered pockets in the waist belt, separate zippered pocket for wet gear.

Weakness:

Can get hot on the back

I use this mostly as a commuter pack as it is big enough to carry clothes, pair of shoes, shaving kit, food, sometimes a laptop.

I love this thing for commuting. I have also used it on long bike day trips where i carried food, clothing and water/gatorade for others and it was good for that. Almost too big.

I used to use a Deuter Futura 28 but it was just a little too small but I loved the mesh back on it. That is the only thing I wish the Futura 30 had.
