Bought two different sizes for my daughters for a hut hiking trip in nh. This was their first such trip and a comfortable well fitting backpack could make or break the trip. Well, they loved the packs and did not complain once about carrying their gear. Well worth the investment.
I love love love this backpack- ease of access, anti gravity feature- I’ve taken this on several trips and will be taking it on a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail!
