It is definitely a well designed and well made backpack but to my disappointment it did not fit me and I had to return it. The cusion on the lower back is quite thick, this made the backpack hang to the back and hang heavy on my shoulders instead of standing on my hips. Could not fix it by adapting the aluminium rod. What I liked very much about the backpack is that it fits a wide range of torso lenghts. This model also fits women with a tall back. Normally I wear a man's M or L and back lenght of this pack was more then enought, the load lifter straps had still a good angle.

Perfect lightweight backpacking bag
I took this on the Pennine Way for 10 days carrying all my gear. It was very comfortable and practical. Very robust and I didn't miss the features of a heavier rucksack. The optional detachable pocket was handy for carrying the wet tent and at food restocking points.

Simple, strong and comfortable
I purchased this bag for long distance trekking. I had been looking for the proper weight/durability/comfort balance in a pack, and I have found it.The Exped 60 women's has no frills, just the necessary hip and back pockets. The straps around the pack make it easy to stuff to dry for example, but also to make the pack a bit more compact. The hip belt is very comfortable and can carry a load of 24 kg.The material the pack is made of, is very durable. There are 2 extra parts on the pack (1 accessible from the outside, the other on the inside) where you can store and organize your things.The torso size of the pack can be adjusted, plus the frame itself can me modified as well if needed (there are videos online on how to do this).Short - it's made of durable material, simple and strong. Loaded with 10 kg and 15 kg I can feel the weight being transferred on the hips properly. The size can be adjusted very simply whenever you want or need it. I think this is the perfect bag I have been looking for!
