This is my first real back pack, I am very one the fence about it. I've heard great things about Gregory packs, and the price was right so I thought I'd try it. The pack itself is fine, but the fitment just isn't quite what I expected it to be. I am in between a XS and S, the XS is too short but the S I have strap fitment issues. I can't quite get it to adjust to my body right. I also wish it had more little pockets on the straps for chapstick, hair ties, bandages, and sunscreen...piddly stuff. What I do like about it is that there is plenty of pony tail room up top. I don't feel like my head is all jammed up due to my pony tail. I can move my neck back comfortably and my head side to side with out any issues. My next pack will probably be a Marmot or Deuter.

I was a little leery on purchasing the XS because I never tried Patagonia's clothing before, but smalls are generally too big for my small frame. I am glad I got the XS! I am 5'3" and 34C, it fits great and is super comfortable. The white isn't white! It's ivory, the picture is wrong! The only thing I do not like about it is the way the bottom is cut. It's shorter in the front than it is in the back by 2 inches, which looks a little funny with jeans. It's also short in the torso, which holds me back from wearing more. The hemline and torso length is the only thing holding me back from giving it 5 stars. It pairs well with yoga pants/capris or shorts and that is about it, unfortunately. The scoop neck makes it difficult to find the correct bra to wear under it, with out showing the outer edges in front. The shirt doesn't offer much support as it advertises, I highly recommend a bra for anything over an A-cup. I've washed it many times and lined dried it, and it's held its shape very well and has not stretched or faded. The empire-line is very flattering and makes you look super slim! I get compliments on the shirt every time I wear it. :)

I'm SO glad I found this! For a long time I was using small glass bottles to transport my wine while hiking and camping. Now all my worries of bottles breaking in my pack and dragging around the extra weight are no more! I've even left half a bottle in the bag for 2 days and it still tasted good. I love it so much, I purchased 2 more and even gave some as gifts. My only draw back is it's hard to get all the water out after cleaning it. The package says "clean with water only and tip upside down to dry." Even tipping it upside down for 3 days doesn't get all the water droplets out. Quite strange...but I still love it.
