- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
When I saw this pack online, I was disappointed to find that NO sporting goods stores in my area had one in stock, so that I could give it a rigorous fondling in person. But, since your site has always been a breeze to work with, and you could get it to me in two days (for FREE!), I decided to give it a whirl, since I had a little mountain adventure planned without the appropriate pack.
When I opened the box, I was THRILLED with the overall look and design of the pack, but after having taken it on it's maiden voyage snowshoeing, you would have to tear it from my cold, dead hands to get it away from me.
It's a great size, EXTREMELY comfortable to wear, and wonderfully adjustable.(And did I mention that it's gorgeous?) Living in the Pacific Northwest, I know the time will come when I will need the extra slick integrated rain cover, and although I hope never to need it, the chest clasp that doubles as a safety whistle is a smart touch. The shoulder straps are molded perfectly for the female physique and nicely padded for comfort. I am 5'8", my torso length is 20.5", so I got it in Large. Loving it!
