Now here is a backpack just my size. I am a small person and while I have done my fair share of backpacking over the years, I have usually had to do it with a back pack sized for someone else. While not quite hobbit sized, I am short and proportionately narrow as well. I bought my husband an Osprey Exos 48 liter backpack for Christmas, He liked it so well, I decided to treat myself. I like almost everything about it except for the pockets on the front of the hip belt that are much smaller than necessary. I like a lot of things at my fingertips when I go awalking, and these pockets are not capacious enough to suit me. Furthermore, I would prefer that backpack makers in general would make them or at least parts of them waterproof. (I can and will use a sturdy plastic bag, but how inelegant) Otherwise this backpack makes me sing. It fits me every which way. It is very lightweight, it moves with me. It carries just enough, never too much. If you should spot me in the wilderness, I'll be the one dancing ahead while lesser mortals stumble and sweat.
Best ultralight pack!! Best for day use. Will still hold 10-20lbs!
