I haven't had this pack long but I have done quite a few miles with it and, so far, I'm not terribly impressed but I will admit that it is a good pack. The one thing that really bummed me out was when I got the top caught on a little thorn and it ripped. I'm sure it has to do with the material being so lightweight but I didn't expect a little thorn to actually penetrate the fabric. I haven't had the hip belt custom molded yet and I don't know if I will, as it seems to be adjusting on it's own. However, I have gotten blisters on my pelvis but I'm going to thank my bony hips for that. I'm hoping this will subside the more I wear the pack. But overall a great pack that can carry some serious weight and not feel too bulky.

I love this backpack. It may not be huge cubic cm wise but it can hold anything. It's very comfortable, and it's a good price for what it is. Not only that, I'm a 21 year old female. Who says you have to spring for the extra money on women's packs? I think it's just another way to jack up the prices!

These boots are adorable. I'm a 21 year old female and I usually wear a size 6. I actually wear a 6 1/2 in my Vasque hiking boots. But when I got this pair of 6's in I couldn't even walk in them. Haha. I loved them, but they were enormous! I would recommend going a size down...an ENTIRE size. I'm not exaggerating. I sent them back for a size 5 in kids. Here's a tip: look at the UK sizes in your other shoes. Then get the size of these boots that corresponds. My 6 1/2 Vasque's are a size 4 in the UK, and these Sorel Boots are a size 6 but in the UK, a size 5. I should have been more observant! I hope this helps!

I really like these boots. If you like to hike in boots that feel like tennis shoes, that are easy to break in, and aren't too heavy, these are perfect. I crossed 8 or 9 streams in these, consecutively, and the GoreTex kept my feet completely dry. The Vibram sole doesn't hurt either. However, if you're carrying a heavier pack, as opposed to the 30 lbs. I'm used to, you may need a heavier shoe than this. Other than that, they're great!
