    I just returned from a 3 day backpacking trip on the Washington coast using this new pack. It is a well-constructed, durable, and attractive backpack. I could fit everything I needed inside, but I found that the straps pressed painfully on my shoulders if I loaded it with more than about 20 lbs. Once I lightened the weight of my gear I was a happy hiker. I am 5'1", and it is quite possible this pack is more suited to a taller person. I met another woman on the trail carrying the same pack and she said she LOVES it. I recommend this product if you are traveling light; otherwise I would buy a backpack with a more substantial frame.

    Really thought this was the one. Size spot on and the lid is removable ++. Design is simple only side pockets. I planned to use it without the lid to have even lighter pack. When loaded and testing out it hung off my back somewhat leaving not a lot of back contact which I thought would be cool and non-sweaty, but concerned about shoulder strap load. There is a thick bulging lumbar pad that hit my back with enough pressure to hurt. I returned it and kept searching. Give this pack a try, maybe the lumbar will be fine for you, if so it's a winner!

    Plan to walk 800 mile approx 40 days GOd willing, looking for lightest, roomiest, stable bag. I am only 5'1 with a smaller back and femme curves.

    This bag truly is very light and roomy with out all the extra pockets & gimmicks(added weight). The colors and fabric are fun & femme. The small size was just right. This is a great light bag for camping or travel where you will not be hiking/standing for hours and hours everyday for 40 days Or if you dont need the extra back support (I am busty & short).This bag may be for you, it is uniquely light, roomy & attractive.

    My concern is less stability and comfort with Straps & lumbar - especially when compared to weightier Gregory Jade 50. THe Lowe is by far roomier and lighter. The Greg Jade belt & straps are far more comfortable, padded, wide & feel stable. The Jade is still fairly light, but still weightier then Lowe. My concern is that the Lowe Alpine straps will rub/chaff and they sit awkwardly close and near neck/collar bone. I really wanted the light & roomy Lowe Alpine to work.

    Since I have never walked this many miles or for such a long time- comfort is essential but so is a light weight packed bag. I am going to try the Jade one size up in a small. And maybe try a golite.
