Product Information

I wanted to love this pack so much that I immedately cut off all the tags, including the small sewn-in ones. The large is too big for me (there isn't any adjustability, I'm right around 19.5") and despite what Gossamer Gear claims via email, I doubt a return will workout without those wee tags so just trying to sell it myself. The only thing I did was remove all tags, adjust everything, and try it on with some added weight. I just bought and received the pack last week.

I like the large side pouch on the right, and the double decker on the left. It's very lightweight (my max carry is usually about 24lb including pack, so this is my style) and I found the strap padding comfortable. The simplicity is appealing, and it's not too different than my existing pack except it's lighterweight and more attractive. This has J straps and I also think I need S, which is the only reason I won't be trying to buy the medium - with my female chest I didn't love the strap fit. I think a long-torso with a flat chest would be ideal fit and I'm sad this won't work for me.

Questions

Question

I'm around that as well, but willing to gamble on asking too, 200.00?

Answer

I suppose I'll have to eat some more of the cost due to my idiocy of removing tags, but I can't offer free shipping at that price and I want to be sure you'd fit; I think you need to be 20" at least - it was significantly too large for me at just under 19.5.
