After hunting for a backpack for my girlfriend, I have come to realize just how hard it is for women to find a god fitting backpack. It seems that most girls give up in their quest to find a backpack that fits them just right and settle on a generic fit. Luckily for the ladies out there, there are a few decent pack made to fit you just right. One of those being the The North Face Primero 65 Pack.

design with the female form in mind, the The North Face Primero 65 Pack is designed to fit women of all shapes and sizes comfortably. Tow of the main female friendly features of the The North Face Primero 65 Pack include a smaller waist belt and shorter torso length. It is surprising just these two small changes can make a huge impact on the pacts comfort for women. Don’t underestimate them.

Not only does the The North Face Primero 65 Pack feature a shorter torso length for women, the suspension also offers and adjustable torso area. This adjustable torso are lets you create a fit that is customized to your body size. In addition to these women friendly features, the The North Face Primero 65 Pack sports all the staples of a great outdoor backpack.
