Here's what other sites are saying:
This dual-access, long-haul pack for women nicely balances comfort, features and value. Combination front-panel and top loading provides easy access to all corners of pack. Bottom sleeping-pad straps and a zipper-accessed sleeping bag compartment with an internal zip-out divider. Angled and designed to fit a woman's shape, 2-layer padded shoulder straps adjust vertically for a custom fit. Contoured, 3-layer ISO waistbelt's foam padding evens out pressure against hips and angles to fit a woman's hipbone shape. Sternum strap, load-lifter straps and belt stabilizers help balance the load; pulley-like Scherer Cinch™ doubles hipbelt tightening force. Removable, floating top pocket converts to a waistpack for forays away from base camp. Two zippered side pockets, 2 mesh water bottle pockets and a large front pocket with organizer keep essentials handy. Zippered stash pocket, security pocket and a fleece-lined optics pocket provide storage for valuables. Daisy chain, ice-axe loop and lash tabs let you strap on extras to the outside of the pack. Spindrift collar cinches down over the main compartment to seal out rain or snow. Main compartment holds a hydration reservoir and features tube ports on lid (reservoir sold separately). High-density polyurethane (HDPE) framesheet and twin aluminum stays provide load support and prevent bulky items from poking into your back. Side and vertical compression straps secure and stabilize the load. Lumbar pad and breathable back panel increase your carrying comfort. Made from lightweight, durable 600-denier polyester Kodra®, 500-denier nylon Kodra and 420-denier micro ripstop nylon.
