Women's Backpack

Post by Vabea » Mon Feb 18, 2019 8:07 am

I've been backpacking for over 4 years now. I tried on many backpacks and gone through about 4 different internal frames before I found my Eureka Torrid. However, my wife wants to start backpacking and I don' t have a clue about womans packs. How should they ride, different suspension, etc. I'd perfer that she bought an internal frame. Any suggestions or stores. We wil be checking out REI this Sunday. Any online stores?

Just have her try on a bunch at REI (with weights!) and see which she feels most comfortable with. The weight should sit high on her hips.

Personally, I've had this backpack for 7 years: https://www.rei.com/product/127756/deut ... ack-womens
Its gotten a ton of heavy use, its held up great, and is always comfortable, even on long trips. I love love love this backpack.
