Got the new pack for a bigger trip this summer, however, we just went snowshoeing into a yurt and I was able to try it out. It is a very nice pack. Very good fit and great support. We only carried in about 40 lbs but it was quite comfortable. Well designed and appears to be quite sturdy.

Recently I went backpacking in S.America and I decided to swap my old frumpy backpack to a new Osprey pack. Right out of the box it fit my small frame very well. I wound up stuffing my pack to about 65lbs. and surprisingly this pack held up very well and it was super comfortable. After hiking 40 miles or so. I am super happy with this pack. I would recommend it to any small women looking to carry heavy loads.

Great packs, great present.
My two girls are planning a backpacking trip across the North and South Island of New Zealand, then Australia, and finally to Fiji before returning to the US beginning in June. I did a lot of research on the two packs I purchased for Christmas and they meet the bill of fare advertised. A great woman's pack which will be much appreciated after 6 weeks traveling and exploring this summer.

Best All Around Backpack!!
I did a lot of research on womens backpacks, and finally decided on this pack. I wanted an ultralight weight pack that was sturdy and versitile enough to meet my needs. Little did I realize how well this pack fit the bill, and much more. I can't even begin to say how wonderfully designed this pack it. The hip belt is perfect, particularly since you can get a size to fit your body (i.e. different pack size and hip belt size), the whole pack sits well, and if you fit it correctly is hardly noticeable! To top it all off, besides the noticeable bells and whistles (like compression and other innovative designs), the top pocket converts to a hip pack with our pack hip belt, and quite easily. Besides the ease, it connects and cinches in tightly, making this the most comfortable pack I've used in many years allowing for decent day hikes from base camp. There's sufficient space for lightweight packing or short trips, and again, comfortable. Something I personally haven't had in years from a backpack. Many kudo's to the pack designers who thought through their design rather than just throwing it together like so many other companies.

Sturdy, Good looking pack
Osprey packs are great because you can order a different sized hip belt from back pack/torso size to get the best fit possible. Took this all around Africa and it held up nicely although the outside got dirty quickly. This was the only bag I brought and I could fit SO many things in it- seemingly bottomless. I love the different access zippers and the straps. Great pack. Nice color too.
