I bought this pack even though it's technically a dude's pack but it has worked out great for me! The only downside is that the straps that are supposed to hook around my waist, are actually just above my hips. Totally not a big deal for me and since I am only 5'5 they would be just fine for most guys. This pack holds quite a bit more than I was anticipating. I am able to pack pretty much any gear I want to take with me for a day of hiking. I like that there is a magnet for the mouthpiece. It makes it easy to grab a quick drink and it also keeps it from getting dirty. Bottom line, love this pack.
