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

Osprey Talon Ghost 22
Review from husband
Great hip belt with large pockets, nice design and perfect size for a long day hike. The back panel is pretty good but not as good as Osprey's trampoline back. It is difficult but not impossible for me to get my water bottles in and out of the mesh side pockets. I like the roomy rear mesh pocket - h...

FYI, I have a 40 inch waist, not slim by any means, but a size that is accommodated bu most packs on the market sized M/L. With the Talon 22, wearing a tee shirt...

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...

Osprey Talon Ghost 22
Slim, comfortable and excellent fit
The Osprey Talon 22 is the Cadillac of day packs.

The frame sheet is very supportive so this will handle a good load of water and all t...
