The Gregory Women's Deva 70L Pack is a women's backpacking pack for exploring the backcountry on weeklong excursions. The women's specific Response A3W suspension lifts heavy loads, regardless of the season, adding comfort thanks to the vented and formed backpanel, and LifeSpan foam through the back, shoulder harness, and hipbelt. The lower back is supported further thanks to LumbarTune, a removable 10mm insert and a silicone grip to prevent slippage. Inside the top loader, you'll find a hydration sleeve/daypack called the SideKick, it's removable and has pack straps for side ventures to that waterfall over yonder. The top pocket features zippered pockets, is removable to drop weight and an included rain cover is hidden inside the front zippered pocket. Load up the SideWinder with an extra water bottle, or stow it when you're traveling light. The U-zip front access allows gear-grabbing from the center of the pack while the lower zippered compartment provides accessibility to your sleeping bag, with a removable internal divider.

Wide shoulder strapsI ordered this for my wife. She said that this pack is everything that she was looking for in a backpack except the shoulder straps are wider than most packs for females and was unable to carry this pack without the straps overlapping onto her breast and causing great discomfort. She contacted Gregory to find out if maybe they have more narrow straps to purchase and they do not. For that reason we had to reluctantly return this pack. She was heartbroken. This pack will work out great for women will smaller breast.

It's like the Cadillac of packsThis thing is the jam, as in, really awesome, but also as in, slightly heavy as one would imagine a full jar of jam to be. 5 stars for awesome, but minus one star for heavy.
I love all the bells and whistles- the quick-draw water bottle pocket, the included rain cover, the great side/top pockets. It fits our bear canister (BV500) perfectly in the bottom compartment. The handy little daypack included is a nice treat too- a good way to transport water bottles to the lake for filling or similar tasks.
The fit system is pretty stellar, too. I'm 5'6" and was surprised to be a size small, but it does fit great. I'm also rather buxom and find the fit to be no problem.
This was the right pack for me since I'm carrying 2 peoples' stuff (I adventure with a kindergartener) and it's going to weigh a ton regardless. After using it for 2 2-night trips and a handful of one-nights this season, I'm quite pleased with it.
