Write your question here...Is the hip belt and suspension the same as the Naos?Any other significant differences?
I like the pivoting hip belt in a women's pack. any other suggestions?

Thanks, Dianne

I am pretty sure that the hip-belt pivots, and has nothing special for suspension, just adjustable straps. Great pack, my friend loves hers.

The Maia has the identical pivoting hipbelt, and suspension (dual alum. stays laminated to foam/plastic framesheet) as the Naos. Just proportioned differently to fit a womens body. One of the best packs made

The hip belt does swivel, and my wife loves hers. There are a few other packs that have swivle belts like the Arcteryx Altra 62, and the Gregory Diva 60. While the Gregory is a good pack, I feel Arcteryx packs are surperior.
