Great pack for smaller women!
I have always had trouble finding a pack that fit my small frame and would allow me to carry a lot of weight. The Jade 50 is it! I use my pack for weekend backpacking, day hikes, carrying all my gear for rock climbing and travel, too. I find it a bit small for backpacking, but otherwise superb. The pack is not squirrel proof though - mine was just chewed to bits by a hungry squirrel in the Sierras. I'm going to replace it with another Jade 50. :)
