The pack was too well padded to the point of being bulky. Also, the padding was too stiff to be comfortable. The hip belt pockets were tiny. The mesh side pockets were just plain strange. One was like a regular vertical mesh pocket big enough to hold a liter water bottle. The other pocket was horizontal with the opening facing the wearer. There was no way to keep things from sliding out. The front access panel for the main compartment was located inside the beaver tail. This meant removing everything from the front pocket just to reach the zipper. Mind as well just dig everything out from the top of the pack. There's not much in the way of pockets for organizing. This is mostly one big compartment. Unless you're going out for a month long excursion, the week/weekend backpacker with bulky gear might find the Gregory Amber 70 Backpack - Internal Frame (For Women) to be a more comfortable fit.
