I used the women's version of this pack for a few seasons. It never did fit me well, with weights above 35 pounds I just couldn't get the weight to transfer to my waist, so it killed my shoulders. Well made packs overall-- my husband Luke hauled out several caribou with a Bora 95 years ago. As a company, arcteryx has great customer service...they mailed us anew waistbelt clip no questions asked when we broke one...everything is guarunteed, no reciepts required. They do cinch down well when empty, but just aren't designed with hunting in mind.
