I bought this pack for my girlfriend (5'1" 110 lbs). So far so good, she is an inexperienced backpacker and was frustrated on her first trip because she used a travelers backpack. I convinced her to give it another try and we ordered her this back pack. We ordered the extra small pack, it fit well and held up during a quick weekend trip. This pack completely changed her outlook on backcountry hiking and camping.I have the Oprey Kestrel and this backpack is the exact same design. She was able to store everything she needed with ease and comfort.
