My wife loves it
My wife always made fun of me and my friends because of our gear addictions. She would say you don't need all of that expensive gear to enjoy the outdoors. Well, this pack has changed her mind. I bought it for her as a gift, and it only took one day of wearing it on the trail to convert her over to the dark side. It is the most comfertable pack she has ever worn, it is totaly waterproof, and it is a cool blue color. I have the mens' version, and it is my favorite pack ever. If you shell out the money you won't be dissapointed, and the pack will last for ever thanks to Arcteryx super durable construction. My wife is 5'2" 130lb, and she is in between a small and medium... Both would work for her, but we chose the small.
