LL Bean has some great packs, I have used this on many occasions, travelling - the cottage - hikes and weekend trips. It is large enough for everything to fit into it, but still the perfect size to be wearable while you are trekking through the city, or through the woods. It is such a versatile bag, clearly functional and styled for hiking, but funky enough to wear through the town. This would be my bag of choice while "bakpacking" through the countryside, or the country - because of the construction and the fact that it is specefically designed for women.
You may not think that a bag designed specefically women makes a difference, until you have worn a bag. if you have a bag that is going to be on your back for hours upon hours than this indeed does, make or break your back at the end of the day!
It comes in four colors, purple, blue, grey or yellow. I chose purple. I love purple, it makes everything more fun! This bag has so many compartments and so much room, that it is a winner for all of those long trips!
