great but not for me
the ventilation back would have been awesome. I needed the pack for point counting in the forest and chaparral. I was concerned about the fabric tearing in the chaparral but the number of compartments, female frame, and capacity tempted me to purchase it none the less. The main compartment is only about 30L capacity and is tall and narrow making it harder for my bike grocery runs to fit things in. Despite the female build the torso was still a tad too long ( I am 5' 2" and most of that is legs). The thing that ultimately made me decide on another pack was that when I tilted my head back (as I would either on a bike or birding) my head would hit the top of the back and not allow me to tilt my head as far back as needed. I would love to get a 30L version of this some day.
