Awesome pack for smaller women!
I got this pack because my North Face Crestone 60 had been giving me some back and hip trouble, and I also needed a larger pack since I'm planning on doing some more intense mountaineering. The Osprey pack is wonderful-with very convenient pockets and is easily adjustable. The moldable hip belt is also extremely nice, especially since my hip bones stick out a bit and normally become bruised. At 5'5 and 110lbs, this pack is by far the best I have had yet. The only problem I've had with it is that I'm still getting a knot (the same problem I had with the North Face pack) in the upper right shoulder/neck area. I don't know if this is a problem with the pack, or if it is just a problem I have that flares up with added weight. Otherwise, I'm in love with this Osprey pack, and I would definitely recommend it for smaller women who have a hard time finding a large good-fitting pack!

Xenon 85 vs. Gregory Deva 85
I had a really hard time choosing between the Xenon and the Gregory Deva. Both are great packs with +5000 cu in of storage, which was hard to find in a women's small. I chose the Xenon because it fits a Bear Vault easily and the wide mouth sleeping bag compartment holds my sleeping bag without the wrestling match that came with the Gregory Deva. Also, straps can be added to the removable hydration sleeve so you can carry the bladder without the pack. That's a million dollar feature for day use while in the back country. All packs should have this capability. The Xenon had two minor issues during it's first use. A buckle broke on the sleeping pad strap and the hydration sleeve ripped. Both had little impact my overall enjoyment of our trip. And Osprey will repair under warranty. But it does make me leery of the pack's ruggedness, especially since the problems occurred on a really light weekend trip. This pack has to survive a lot more abuse if it's going to be my trusted load monster.

The best ever pack for women
Osprey has been know for creating great packs, and this Xeon 85 pack is perfect for women. It's loaded with so many features that your amazed how you ever got by without them before. Some of the best features is the custom molding waist belt. All you do is take your pack to your local Osprey retailer and they take your waist belt and bake it in a special oven designed by Osprey and it makes a perfect custom fit to your body/hips. But the comfort fit doesn't stop there, the back panel is designed to provide great support through an Air Mesh designed which helps immensely with keep your back dry and comfortable for mile after mile hikes. The two side pockets on both sides of pack near your waist belt are very convenient for storing cameras, snack packs, water bottles, and anything else you want close at hand. And finally, one of my favorite features is the front stretch pocket that has mesh air vents is perfect for putting anything from guide books/maps to wet clothes or jackets for the rain. Osprey has truly thought of everything you might need for a long week trip with this backpack, and the fit is truly perfect and designed just for women!
