I bought this pack because I am very short (5'1") and was having trouble finding a pack to fit my torso. This one is wonderful and fits great. It's durable, lightweights and has lots of storage options. The ONLY complaint I have about it (after multiple adventures and miles) is that the side pockets that ride on your hip belt are NOT easy to zip up one handed when you are in the middle of a hike. I keep my inhaler in that pocket for easy access, but it takes two hands to zip that pocket back up. Overall a wonderful little pack tho.
