You dont have to take my word for it that the Gregory Women’s Deva 60 Backpack isn’t just a marketing scheme.

My old lady is a tiny little thing and I know from experience how hard it was for her to find a pack that fit her well. She didn’t end up with this version of the Gregory Women’s Deva 60 Backpack, but she did end up taking home an older model Deva. After living out of it for a year, she hasn’t had too many complaints.
