Really depends on what you have in it. If you pack this thing full then yeah, you will probably have a little trouble being comfortable on the lift, but if you just have skins, a probe, and shovel with maybe a snack or something then you should be fine. If it's too bulky you can always swing the pack around onto your lap while on the lift as well.

With packs it is very important to have a good fit, if you don't have experience with fitting packs yourself I would highly suggest finding a store that carries the packs you are interested in and finding someone to help you measure yourself so you can be sure of the fit. Also trying on packs is key, as just because they numbers work doesn't mean it will fit your body well. Good luck!

I haven't used the rain cover on this specific pack, but I have on other packs, including some built in Osprey ones. The built in rain covers are great, they have a separate pocket they zip into when not in use, and it's a cinch to pull them out and buckle them on when needed. That being said, and this applies to all rain covers, you just don't get very serious weather protection from a rain cover. They will protect your pack in mist, light rain, or for a little while in heavier rain, but there is a huge tendency for water to get in on the back of your backpack (The part of your pack against your back, where the rain cover stops). If you want to be truly waterproof use a pack liner (I use a contractor trash bag) on the inside of your pack, and make sure anything not inside that can either get wet or is in waterproof stuff sacks.

Women's specific packs are generally designed with narrower shoulder attachment points, smaller waist belts, possibly a differently shaped lumbar support, shorter back length, differently place chest strap, and other possibly modifications. There are obviously certain people who might be more comfortable in a pack designed for the opposite sex (such as a very tall wide shouldered women using a mens pack, or a slim man finding a womens pack to fit better), but in general I think you're best off using gender specific packs if they are available.

Try chatting with a gearhead by clicking the "live chat" link at the top of the page, they will be able to help you out quicker and possibly get you what you are looking for. I see that they are on sale for $38 now, and the image you gave as proof shows no prices, just slashed original prices. Good luck.

There very well maybe shops that carry these pants in NY, but you won't find a Backcountry.com shop. The only physical location they have is the warehouse store in SLC. So you can either order here, or try to find a physical store that might carry them. Good luck!
