Hey Katie!

Finding an alpine pack for women that actually fits is really hard! I looked for forever but the torso was always too long and the hipbelt all weird. What I ended up with that really works and kind of gives me a custom fit, is Granite Gear’s Leopard 58 (which cinches down to the size of a daypack if you need). You can fully adjust the torso length and can swap out waist bands, which I did – i got a men’s slim fit for the pack and swapped the waistband out for a women’s XS. Hope this helps!
