@Laurelgs I'm a guy, so not sure how relevant this is but I had the same concern (I'm a bigger guy). I shopped and looked at the measurements for waist and sternum and was a little worried (I've got a 40" waist). I got a Gregory Paragon 58 and the measurements on the specs were spot on. Very comfortable. I also looked at the Osprey Atmos and tried a few on and they were pretty spot on too. Hope this helps.
one or more gifts or other benefits from the co-op.
