      by fromGreat day pack! I was looking for a simple pack for day hikes, mostly for when we decide to go 15 miles on a whim because the weather is nice and we've never been there before. I love the lumbar support, but once I have it packed the tear drop shape can make it difficult to take stuff out. I use it everyday for light loads and for school books, and my back never hurts! it definetely makes you stand up straight. it serves the purpose of what I was looking for, putting in a few layers of clothes, food and water and going. for longer hikes and more gear I would recommend the Jade 38.

      by fromGreat Pack! I am new to hiking (day trips) but was fitted for this pack at my local REI store (thank you, Scott!) and it's GREAT! When I've got my water and gear in it, it's rather heavy to lift but once I've got it on my back and strapped on properly, I hardly know it's there. I just did a 7.5 mile hike last weekend and never once thought about taking my pack off... Most times I forget I've even got it on! I'm still new enough that I haven't really figured out exactly what I want to carry and/or how I want to load it so I really can't speak to those things but I do tend to overpack and I've never had to leave something behind because it couldn't fit into the pack. The only reason I didn't give the pack a 5-star rating is because I haven't used it yet in wet weather and haven't gotten to test the rain cover feature.... But I really do like that the pack comes with a cover that lives in it's own place in the pack and I don't have to buy a separate one or remember to pack it.

      by fromAnother Gregory Winner I've been a fan of the Gregory packs for two+ years now- this is my second pack. These are the best woman's packs I've found (I've tried many), and best of all they work great on my plus-frame frame. The straps fit all the way around, and are super adjustable. Best of all? The straps STAY where you adjust them to- no slipping. This certainly isn't an overnight pack, but I have plenty of gear, including an oversize first aid kit for the whole family, and plenty of room still for lunch or snacks.

      by fromThank you REI~ this ROCKS! After extensive online research, I headed to my local REI, knowing I was not going to leave until I came home with the perfect women's specific hiking day backpack. [...] I chose the Gregory Jade 28 size small in black & gray, the darker colors are much easier to keep clean and still maintains a feminine, yet outdoorsy look. The Jade 28 shoulder straps weren't as abrasive & bulky as I found the women's Osprey Sirrus 24 to be at the armpit and top of neck. (If you're a tank top girl like I am wear one when you go in to try on packs, then you won't have any surprise rub spots later on the trail!) The women's REI Venturi 30 was in the running for a very short while, there's just something about it's fabric that looked cheapish and bulky. Once I became attached to the fabric & raincover on the Jade 28 the women's REI Venturi 30 was no longer in the running . The Jade 28's top compartment is the perfect spot for lunch & snacks. I do not hike with trekking poles so haven't found a cutesy use for the elastic loops just quite yet, besides slipping wildflowers through them. I'm bouncing back and forth between a widemouth Camelbak 2L bladder and 3L and am considering trying a more 'rigid' bladder as to keep the water distribution even in the bladder and not just in the bottom of the pack. (I choose a widemouth bladder so I could fit my own ice cubes in without having to buy a special sized tray.) I've always enjoyed myself out on the trails, but this awesome backpack makes it that much better!

      by fromGreat Pack!!! This pack has tons of space and straps everything down tight. I was amazed at what I could put into this pack and how well it organized my needs. Carries well, the air vent for your back is terrific. I would highly recommend this product for anyone who wants to get out for an entire day, overnight trip.

      by fromGreat Pack! The last time I purchased a pack manufacturers offered one size fits all. It is terrific to have a backpack made for a smaller frame. The pack is light and comfortable.

      by fromPerfect for a 2-3 day hike love this backpack...sturdy and lightweight. (Unlike the Osprey: I Had bought an Osprey 22 and the buckle cracked before i even used it.) The Gregory is ergonomic and fits well(i'm 5'4" weight 125lbs) -the rain cover came in handy -the two zipper pockets on the waist belt came in handy -I used this to fit clothes and food including a 3Liter playtpus water hydration bag for my hike down into the colorado river from the grand canyon south rim end of September

      by fromGreat Daypack for hot weather I needed a daypack for 90+ degree desert weather that wouldn't put too much strain on my shoulders. The hip belt on this bag is wide and well padded. The bag is also slim in width which allows for a full range of motion. The shoulder straps aren't itchy against bare skin. It fits plenty of liquid, food and a few layers comfortably. I tested it out on a 14 mile hike in 85 degree weather and it was perfect. The mesh panel that keeps the pack off your back is fantastic. This is a great daypack for those willing to carry a slightly heavier daypack that distributes the weight down to your hips.
