Tche Terra Nova Quasar 55 Backpack carries everything you need so comfortably you may not want to come off the trail. The Quasar 55 has a cavernous main compartment on an alloy-framed, single-strutted, stable support system that won't weigh you down. Terra Nova also loaded the Quasar 55 with a gaggle of smart features like two lids, waist-belt pockets, and attachments for all your alpine gear.
- Lightweight PE back system with single-strut alloy frame delivers excellent support and stability, even under a large load
- 8mm removable foam on back for comfort while carrying a full load
- Removable lid with double pocket accesses spacious main compartment
- Second low-weight mini-lid option for day hikes or lower-capacity trips
- Extendable main compartment can be stuffed to the hilt as the straps optimize or cinched down for small loads
- Super-strong Terra Nova Matrix and Ultra fabric is lightweight and extra-durable
- Cordura and Dyneema reinforcements protect high-stress areas
- Regular stitching uses strong Coat 50s thread, and bar-tack points use ten-times-the-strength-of-steel Dyneema thread for crazy durability year after year
- Shoulder-strap load adjustment provides proper fit and carry position
- Fully adjustable chest strap lets you distribute some weight to the front and adjust carry position
- Internal hydration pocket and port for easy hydrating
- Multiple gear attachment points, including reinforced ones for crampons, hold everything you need where you want it

I am 5"2' @ 102 lbs with a 14.5" torso...I have tried the small Golite Jam 70 but was WAY tooooo big in frame size as well as volume. I need an ultrilight pack with a 14.5" frame and 50+ Liters...sany suggestions. I work for Mountain Gear and we have nothing that fits me...ironic?!?!
Have you looked at the kids packs in Osprey or Deuter? They make stellar packs for adults so their smaller packs I assume would also be great. Also look at the Deuter SL line made for women but might work out. Neither brand in the super light weight catagory though. I've had to order quite a few packs online and return until I found some that really fit - it was worth all the shipping costs to find.
