I bought this backpack to try to move to a more ultralight backpacking style but after a five night trip, decided I needed something that has a top pocket and more features. Otherwise I loved it.
I'm female, and used a size Medium (torso 18-21in.) I'm 5'6'' and it fit me perfectly.
Bought on garagegrowngear.com for $275. Only used on that five night trip. No rips or tears.
Selling for $250 + shipping. I'm in Canada but have an upcoming trip to the US so can ship from either country.
