I am 5'4" and 130lbs and new to knowing how packs were actually sized. Ive mostly worked off of borrowed friends gear for the last few years, and beggars cant be choosers. Still, I recently purchased this pack (M), building up my collection of gear. Its gone on one trip with me, weighted down with 34lbs for 16 miles of AR hills, and did FANTASTIC! Having a pack that fits like a glove is AMAZING! My back is fresh, but my legs are a different story. I didnt get close to using its 60L capacity, but it cinched down pretty well. The outside side pockets were stretchy, which was nice. It would be nice if the bladder pocket was easier to access, but that is my only complaint. If you get it, I hope you enjoy it! No worries and safe travels!
I really enjoy this pack

I bought this pack a few years ago and I really enjoy it. I bought the 70L last year I needed more space. very light and a with the mesh back its really nice for backing in the south.

Jade Ventilated Backpacking
These packs provide True Ventilation across your back without sacrificing the positive load transfer of weight to your hips. The two critical points that make the suspension work, at the scapula pads and lower lumbar pad, are the only points of contact with your back. The proprietary waistbelt system is adjustable to 3 different sizes and ensures a custom fit and comfortable carry out on the trail.

Hey. I'm going to Ghana in February with Peace Corps...I am definitely going to get the Gregory Jade pack...I'm just not sure on what size I want...the 50 or 60...I tried on the 60 at REI and it was a great fit and I know it would be a good bag...but I'm wondering if I would want a smaller one...I'm not going to be doing a lot of intensive hiking or backpacking...can anyone give me their opinions on size...I'm wondering if I should just give in and get the 60...is it really that much bigger than the 50?
If you aren't going to be carrying it much, then I would actually go with the 60 so you have the option of larger capacity. You can always cinch it down if you don't fill it, and the weight penalty for a larger pack is not an issue for you. If you planned on carrying it, then I think the weight would be a more important factor.
You can always make it smaller, but it is much more difficult to make it bigger.
I bought this pack for my fiancé and she loves it. After several backcountry adventures it still looks new, a testament to its durability. It's large enough to fit everything you need for several nights on the trail. We fit a down sleeping bag, sleeping pad, cookware, clothing and food for several days all in this pack. My fiancé has climbed Horsetail Falls in Northern California and continued to hike all the way to Aloha lake. This is a fairly intense trail (4 pt. scramble through many parts) and she was comfortable the whole way. Most recently we hiked 14 miles into Desolation Wilderness with some fairly aggressive altitude changes and she was very comfortable (even loaded with nearly 40 lbs). I highly recommend this pack.

Load it up and head out
This pack has worked really well so far for me. I gave up cubic space for the option of an extra small frame, which really forces me to pack efficiently. Its a good sacrifice for a well-fitting pack. If you're "vertically challenged" like me, this pack is fantastic. Heavy in my hands and light on my back. Fill it up and hike the days away.
