No need to burden yourself.
You wouldn't have much of a say about how comfortable your pack is if you were a mule, but fortunately for you your mom isn't a horse, so go ahead and get the Lowe Alpine Women's AirZone Trek+ ND Women's 33:40 Backpack before you have to endure another overnighter with a sweaty back.
Featuring Lowe Alpine's AirZone back panel, the design of the Trek+ ND puts a premium on comfort and breathability, with a back panel that minimizes contact to maximize airflow between your back and the pack. Soft and breathable mesh at the shoulders and hips keep the pack comfortable where it rests against your body, and the divided main compartment gives you a spot to stow your sleeping bag and can be accessed through either the top or front of the pack. The lid can be heightened to make extra room for your snack-heavy food bag, and lateral compression straps keep your load secure and balanced, so you don't get discombubulated on those sketchy log bridges. Lowe Alpine also attached a rain cover to the pack, so you won't feel like a goober when spitting rains make you realize you left your trash bags back home.
