Summary

Great ultra-light backpack. Sufficient storage space, but could be improved.

Pros

  • Ultra-light
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Pockets too small

I've had this backpack for a couple of years and have been using it for short (3 days) and long-term (2 month) trips, mostly instead of a suitcase. I took it for short (2 day) overnight hikes as well.

It is a comfortable backpack, fits nicely around the waist and is nice and tight against the back. Well-designed to fit along a woman's body.  

It has a front, a main, a bottom and a top compartment. The main compartment has a pocket against the back that can fit a water bag. The bottom compartment fits a sleeping bag nicely. The bag also has side pockets, too big for a water bottle but too small for a mat. It has a pocket on each of the waist straps. I would have appreciated having more and/or larger pockets, especially on the waist straps. Those pockets are very small and quite impractical (don't even consider trying to fit a snack in them). 

I bought this backpack on sale ($150) and that is probably how much it is worth for me. I don't think I would have bought it for more.

You can adjust the length of the torso and adjust the waist-belt on the GoLite Women's Terrono 65 Backpack. That means you get the perfect fit each time you go on an adventure (well, unless your adventure includes secret eat and drink potions that grow and shrink you more than this pack's adjustable four inches).
