You need another one.
You never thought you'd have to add another pack to your quiver after you bought your old one, but you've been proven wrong before. Your pack collection has steadily expanded over the years far beyond what you thought it would, and now that you're doing more multi-day trips than ever, it's about time welcome a new member again. If you've got gear-heavy long weekends and longer treks in mind, the Vaude Astrum 60 + 10 Women's Backpack makes a strong choice to be your next addition. Small fit issues can become huge problems on longer trips, and the Astrum's women's-specific fit helps make sure you're not swimming in a design meant for someone twice your size.
In addition to its women's-specific design, the Astrum 60 comes with a highly customizable suspension system meant to adapt the pack to be comfortable for a wide variety of torso sizes. Pull the straps where you need them, then enjoy added support from the Astrum's supple waist strap, which stabilizes without inhibiting movement as you hike. Added touches like a sleeping bag compartment, detachable top lid (complete with ten liters of extra space), and compressible side pockets simplify the packing/unpacking process when you're setting up camp at dark and leaving before dawn to hit your daily mileage. Waist pockets keep trail candy and a smartphone for pictures easily accessible, and an integrated, detachable rain cover comes to the rescue to shield your stuff in the event that a surprise summer storm interrupts your reverie on the trail.
