We went to Midwest Mountaineering today and looked at packs. After looking at a large number of packs, she went with the Granite Gear Vapor Ki. It's the women's version of my pack, the Vapor Trail.
In coming to her conclusion, she tried on, and rejected, the following packs:
- GoLite Jam^2
- GoLite Pinnacle
- GoLite Quest
- Osprey Talon 44 (my bro's pack)
- Granite Gear Vapor Trail /w women's hipbelt
And she hates purple. But she got it because it fit and was comfortable. So be it. We're heading up to Split Rock State Park this weekend for an easy weekend trip. It will be her first backpacking trip.
