  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this pack in hopes it would turn out to be my one pack, perfect for climbing Colorado's 14ers, light backpack trips in the desert and traveling.
I am 5'9", 135lbs, generally wear women's size small to medium. I purchased the S/M pack as the shoulder length fit the best for my taller frame. The waist belt is a bit big, I have to wear it cinched as tight as it can possibly go, so I wish that the waist could be just a tad smaller (the XS/S size fit my waist perfectly with plenty of room to adjust).
I just returned from a 12-day trip from Colorado to New England. The pack was my primary bag for the entire trip and I wanted to make everything as simple as possible. I carried the bag with me everywhere. I walked all through airports, flew, rode busses, trains, hitch hiked and rented a car.
The Opsrey Kyte 46 was perfect! At first I was worried about not being able to take enough clothes for the trip, but I managed to squeeze plenty of days worth in there. It has so many nooks and pockets that I was able to keep everything pretty well organized.
It strapped down super tight and fit like a gem in the larger jet's overhead bins. The only time it was too big was in the smaller Boeing jets/prop planes for the shorter flights. For those I just did the quick check at the gate which worked out great because I was able to pick the pack up right at the arrival gate. I never once had to worry that my stuff would get lost in baggage.
I carried the pack stuffed full all round Boston, carried it riding the subway and trains and buses from Boston to Maine. It was heavy. I never had a chance to weigh it, but it had to be a good 50lbs or more. Carrying the pack around at that weight tended to be a bit much on my shoulders, but it did a great job of keeping the majority of the weight on my hips. It never once got unbearable uncomfortable. I even managed to cram a few more momentos in the pack to take home as well!
Overall it was awesome, I can't wait to take it up mountains!

Great weekend pack!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used this pack for an overnight backpacking trip and it was the perfect size. Very comfortable pack with just the right amount of storage. I'm 5'5'', 125 lbs and the S/M pack fit just right. Would definitely recommend this great quality pack.

I am 5'1'' and I was wondering if the small or x-small pack would be better for me?

Hey Zilah,

Pack size does not depend on height, it depends on torso size. To find your torso length, measure from the C7 vertebra (the big one at the base of your neck), down your spine to the line between the top of your hips. Once you find this measurement, refer to the size chart.

Let me know if you want to talk packs or if you are having difficulty figuring out sizing.

The One

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Finally upgraded. This pack is the perfect size to carry my stuff and some of my kids' overflow if necessary to spend a night or two at a hut. (I would not describe us as minimalists). Took a bit of walking and trial and error to adjust all the straps correctly but after 2 heavy days, no backache! One thing...I was misinformed that a rain cover was not included (and thus bought one) however this pack DOES come with a rain cover. After backcountry realized their mistake, customer service was very helpful and responsive....

This pack seems perfect for my upcoming...

This pack seems perfect for my upcoming Nepal trek but I'm wondering if it could crossover as a ski touring pack. Can you strap skis to it and are there spots for probe, shovel, etc?

Hey Jackie,

There isn't a designed ski carry on this pack but with the right resources I bet you could get something to function well enough on short tours if you really had to. However, in this price range you should be able to find a good pack at the same price and size that does have a ski carry as well as the other features you are looking for:

Might be tough to find something that will accommodate skis and still have the (back) breathability you'd want when trekking.

so great!

so great!

took this pack to Nepal with me and it survived!! lots of pockets and big enough to put sleeping and camping gear along with a few nalgene bottles.
