Exactly as Decribed
I'm 5'2" so I needed a shorter pack with good capacity. This pack is fully adjustable and very comfortable to carry. I used it for winter day hike carrying food, water and extra clothing along with my snowshoes and had room to spare.

is a great backpack is really light, but really roomy too, the best choice for a girl, and also looks great. I love the pacific color. I love everything about it.
