Arc'teryx Bora AR 49 Pack - Women's
Arc'teryx Bora AR 50 Review | Backpacking Backpack | Backpackers.com
Arc’teryx also makes this line with a women’s-specific fit, and there are two pack models: the Bora AR 49 and the Bora AR 61. All of these packs are excellent, and built in almost the exact same way. If you want a durable, capable backpack that can handle pretty much anything, just make sure to get the size and gender that’s right for you

Kelty Coyote 65
Kelty Coyote 85 Review 2020 | Kelty Coyote 80 UPDATED | Backpackers
The Coyote 65 is great for shorter backpacking trips, and the Coyote 105 is simply massive — as in, too big for our tastes. Compare Men’s Kelty Coyote 85 and Women’s Kelty Coyote 60 prices below.

"What are you even doing here with your +10lbs base weight?"
Less than half the weight of my trusty Kelty Coyote 65, (which I love, by the way. It will carry a house without complaining and their customer service is amazing).

Nice riding pack.
Took this pack on the first outing last weekend. Pack rode nicely and is well made. I would make a few tweaks to the design if I could. The top flap pocket has too narrow an opening. And the pockets for water bottles interfere with the lower hip chinch straps. Overall a nice pack for the price

Comfort

Arc'teryx Bora AR 49 Pack - Women's
Best pack I've owned
Definitely the most comfortable backpack I've owned (and I lead backpacking expeditions for 10+ years). The "floating" waist belt system is incredible - because the pack moves as your body does, it feels like substantially less weight, esp. when moving uphill.
Wore the pack through rain and snow...

Amazing Bag
First time backpacking with this awesome bag last weekend. The trip was 20 miles in 3 days/2 overnights. The bag fit great, carried everything I needed and more. Lots of pockets and removable frame.
