I am wondering if this is too much pack. I am debating between the Ariel and This Xenon. I really like all the added features of the Xenon, Including the removable hydration packs so off trail jaunts, and the front access, but a am a petite lady. 40-45 lbs is my top comfort range but smaller pack usually don't have enough padding for my wiry frame. I am thinking 5-7 day trips as well as the occasional weekend. Any suggestions on what else I should take into consideration?
