I received the Cerro Torre Gecko 47l as a birthday present and have only used on one vacation, but was delighted with it. The adjustments for shoulder to hip weight could be fine tuned to any individual. I kept most of the weight on my hips and the design of the straps (both shoulder and hip) caused very little fatigue, and I'm 55. Only disappointment was that there was no rain fly with mine. Might have been off ebay?? Very satisfied.
Here's what other sites are saying:
From the bottom up, the rugged Cerro Torres Gecko 47L is a superb pack for climbing and minimalist backpacking in questionable weather conditions. Behind the separate sleeping bag compartment is an A" slant hip belt with a two-way adjustable design that aligns the belt and load to your hips and girth. Like the ergonomically-enhanced Rigi 28, the Gecko has padded shoulder straps that gradually narrow to minimize stress and pressure along the lumbar area of your chest. Up top you'll find a detachable rain fly and waterproof zippers to keep your mountaineering and backcountry essentials protected from the elements. Inside you'll find a pouch for a hydration reservoir and a multipurpose pocket for pencils, key rings, guide books and such.
