Osprey Kyte 66 Litre Women's Thru-Hiking Backpack
If you need a pack that can handle scraping through sandstone canyons, scrambling up snow-covered peaks, or hauling your gear for a day of trail work, the Osprey Women's Kyte 66 Litre Backpack can manage all that and more. For extended overnights, the Kyte's close-to-body design and low-profile harness help you move efficiently through challenging environments. It wouldn't be an Osprey without adjustable torso lengths to help you dial in the perfect women's specifiCOLORfit, and an AirScape backpanel to provide ventilation, whether you're working hard or hardly working. The integrated raincover can be deployed at the first sign of precipitation, Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole carry allows you to stash your poles when bushwhacking or scrambling, and a large front panel U-zip into the main compartment means you have easy access to all your gear at once without dumping it on the trail. Made from rugged nylon fabric, the Kyte 66 is dependable and will give you confidence in the backcountry.

First of all, ordering from Seven Horizons was a breeze, and I was extremely impressed with their efficiency and the care taken in packaging the order. As for the product itself, it is very, very light, and a good size - though I did struggle to get everything into it for a 3-day cold weather trip (which might say more about me than the pack). The bottom compartment does suffer a little from being split in two and could be a bit larger, and while the side pockets on the hip straps are a great idea, they are too far back to actually reach easily while walking - if these were moved forward a little they would be brilliant. The pack is comfortable to carry and all the straps are easy to adjust even when you have it on. It appears to be quite tough as well - nothing about it felt flimsy or fragile. So yes, there were some design features I would change, but all things considered I was very happy with the pack and I suspect it will be getting used rather frequently in the future.
