I've used this pack for almost four years and I love it. I originally bought it for rock climbing as I needed a stronger, well padded pack for the weight of the gear and it was perfect. Its also great as a day pack, using either the detachable front pocket alone or the main pack separately to cut back on weight. It also works well for backpacking and seems to hold exactly what I need for a long weekend without a problem. It adjusts easily and is very well padded. The only negative I've found is the hole for the bladder tube is too small.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Be as rough and tumble on the trail as you want with Marmot's Femme Nikita 50. Durable nylon ripstop materials are matched up with a women-specific alpine backcountry pack fit that features a smaller, removable daypack for short excursions off the main path.

The Marmot Femme Nikita is a women's pack that can do it all. An Alpine climbing and backpacking pack big enough for multi day use and constructed with back panels and shoulder straps designed specially to fit women. At 3100 cubic inches, the Femme Nikita is just right for an all around, multi-use pack. A removable front pocket/daypack is ideal for quick day outings away from camp. You can also carry skis in a couple of different configurations.
BioSpan load-control system customizes the fit, whether you need more control or want to loosen the load. Closeout. Dual ice axe loops with lash straps allow access to tools and equipment. Four side-compression straps stabilize the load and double as a ski- and snowboard-carrying system. Front pocket can be removed when not needed and can be used as a daypack for short trips away from camp. HDPE framesheet and two aluminum stays provide an optimal blend of stiffness and torsional flex while supporting heavy loads. High-tenacity 420-denier nylon and 1000-denier stretch Cordura nylon provide excellent abrasion resistance and tear strength. Padded S-curved shoulder straps with load-lifter straps and sternum strap work with the padded hipbelt and lumbar pad for proper weight distribution. Pocket and port for hydration reservoir lets you haul enough water to keep you hydrated during intense activity (reservoir sold separately). This technical alpine backcountry pack is designed specifically for a woman's frame, with a shorter torso length and narrower shoulder straps. Top-loading pack with front-panel access lets you find a particular piece of gear without unpacking everything else.
