Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I will start off saying I love Osprey. This was my 4th Osprey pack. But what happened to the waist belt?! I got the same size as for all my other ones (small) and I am 5'4" and 125 lbs. I messed with it for awhile and the waist belt doesn't appear to adjust?! It barely came around my sides, it kept going lopsided to one side. Never had this problem before. I took it out on a 17 mile hike with only 15-20 lbs and my entire hips are BRUISED and SWOLLEN. I may up the size on this one if not completely return it, but so far not impressed..

Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: 40

Been wanting these for a long time so finally snatched them up on sale! I took them out first time on a climb in the CA Sierra's to a near 13er by Mt Whitney. 12 miles, route approach over boulders, 5,000 ft gain, with 1,800 of it up a steep chute full of scree (snow still not quite there yet). These boots were perfect...Until coming back down the trail portion the last couple miles. Toes were getting banged. No hot spots or blisters, felt very snug comfortably around my heels and ankles. I have a size 8 in Lowas, La Sportivas, and the newer Arcteryx hiking boots and they never toe bang. I went with a 40 in Scarpa (roughly 8.5) and they are too small. Returning for a size 41. Love everything about them so far, just need the right size. I will review again after I get the size up.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've had it about a month or so now and already used it multiple times, it's saved me, literally! I love the light weight of it. Haven't had an issue with the spike protector breaking yet. Leash adjustment doesn't work too well for me but I have a tiny wrist. Also I am 5'4" and bought the 66cm. It's almost perfect for me but I think I could have went a size longer. So far no complains!
