Nice looking pack, GAGA. You got a great deal. Checked out your link....
It is also, I believe, the only external frame pack currently on the market that is designed specifically for a woman.
Well, if it doesn't fit you, it might fit your lucky lady! :lol:

it said "made for girls" in the link. no big deal. i paddle with a bunch of guys that wear 'girl specific' PFD's. these are slimmer guys that don't carry a lot of excess upper body weight. they say that the cut of the vest is far more comfortable. i use a boy type PFD myself. a big tough black one, with a Titanium knife, handle down on the shoulder strap. :mrgreen:
