Reviewed by jordan peters from indiana on Tuesday, December 3, 2013This pack is actually pretty great. Its very light weight material but still very sturdy. The size works well if you have a small packing sleeping bag and gear. Plenty of space for a couple nighter. As far as the sternum strap, I don't know what the other reviewer is talking about, because the strap slides up and down on the shoulder straps. It has about 5 inches other adjustment travel, so its not just stuck on the nipple line. The shoulders work well for a smaller frame woman, but I(a dude) can put in on and its comfortable. Overall its comfortable, breathable back, quality design and nice looking.
Reviewed by Anonymous from Rockville, MD on Friday, September 20, 2013Nice backpack--seems quite compact, good looking, and after some adjusting, it seems to fit well. I don't have quite the same problem as the other reviewer with the sternum strap, but maybe it's just my body. It looked a little narrow to me at first--I have relatively broad shoulders but am small in the bust area, it works for me and seems to hold quite a bit. Am glad it came with a rain cover which is definitely a plus. I'll try it out in two weeks to see how it actually performs.
Reviewed by Magdalena from Chicago on Friday, July 19, 2013This pack looks like it will be fantastic - lots of compartments, apparent good quality materials and craftsmanship. My only complaint is that the "sternum strap" falls right at the nipple line. Not comfortable, or flattering for that matter. If this had been moved up a few inches to sit above the breasts then I could agree with the description's "women-specific fit." I might try moving it myself or just not using it, and since I purchased it on sale it's definitely worth it, but if you are the kind of person who is concerned about comfort in that region and having a chest strap, you might want to consider a different pack.
Aside from this one area, it looks like it will be a comfortable, practical, and stylish backpack.
