Here's what other sites are saying:
Osprey designed the Women's Xena 70 Backpack to haul heavy loads down long trails, and as the smaller of the two Xenas (Xena 85 being the larger), this option is more practical for weekenders or minimalist expeditions. To help you haul heavy loads, the Xena employs a rigid LightWire peripheral frame wrapped in an Airscape back panel with mesh-covered foam sandwiched between for support, ventilation, and cushy comfort. Essentially heat-molded foam, the BioForm harness boasts comfort at the shoulders and hips, and you can replace the hip belt for something less beefy for trips where you won't be hauling mountaineering gear around the alpine.
The Osprey Xena 70 carries boatloads of gear in a smaller but very capable 70 liter package that delivers incredible comfort for weekend, weeklong or longer backpacking trips. The Xena's legendary load-carrying ability keeps you comfortable throughout the journey, and a women's-specific fit, interchangeable hip-belt and harness sizes with custom molding allow anyone to dial in a perfect fit.
