I’m very satisfied using a Deuter ACT TRAIL 32 for many years (7 or so). May be, its not produced any more but available by a shop? Now there is a (new) TRAIL “family” by Deuter. My ACT TRAIL 32 seems to be similar to the current TRAIL 30.
In the picture its packed for a 2 m activation, with 2 pipes for a pole and 1 pipe 110 cm long for the yagi boom, the 4 elements inside the pipe. When activating on short wave these 3 pipes are replaced by a 7.5 m telescopic pole, 65 cm for transport
For my pack:
Especially I like the “front door” (“front zip access”). It allows an easy access to the SOTA equipment on the bottom of the pack (picture 7).
The front pocket is wide but compressible by two straps.
The rain cover is large enough to cover the pack with the 65 cm long pole (was important on a 2.5 h hike in heavy rain and some other rainy tours.)
I’m using the pack for full day hikes with weather protection clothings, foot and water and I used it also for a two day SOTA hike with sleepover on a hut with service.
Mostly I carry my 5 watt Station.
For shorter hikes with lower amount of clothes and foot and water its enough room for my 40 W PA and my 6.6 Ah LiFePo accu.
