Eagle Creek Truist Vita 65L Pack - Women's - 3950cu in - 2009 BCS
Whether you plan to trek from village to village, sleep in a rainforest canopy treehouse, or camp on a remote beach, the Eagle Creek Women’s Truist Pack helps you get your gear from point A to point B. A framesheet and aluminum stays work with women’s-specific shoulder straps and hip-belt to ensure this burly travel backpack doesn’t scrunch under its load and feel Goliathan on your back. A drawstring and zip closure on top gives you room to expand, just in case you pick up a few souvenirs, and a front panel zipper makes getting to that pair of socks you stuck in the middle a cinch. A bottom compartment with a zippered divider gives you a spot to stash a sleeping bag or some extra layers, and the lid turns into a chest or waist pouch with pockets for town and trail extras.
Talk shop with all the gear freaks out there: ask 'em questions, upload/browse photos, and give your 2¢.

I'm 5'7", medium build and fairly large chested. The Truist is a little on the heavy side, but with the rain fly and detachable fanny, it's not a bad bag. I think it's comfortable, and the fanny works extremely well as a lumbar pack for me. The straps are really easy to cinch up and adjust/tighten the fit while wearing the pack. The hip straps sit in just the right place on me. I don't mind the front and top entry, but I can see the straps not zipping into the pack as an issue on flight travel. I think it's a great grab and go weekend pack, but not perfect for extended travel. Still, it's a bargain.

This pack is awesome, and not just for travel. I just took this bag on a two-week Down Under vacation with one whole week of that in New Zealand's backcountry. This pack is specifically made for travel by the compartments in the detachable fanny pack, so it was nice to sort all my travel documents and have them in a safe place (and extra cool to detach and use on a day-hike). The sleeping bag compartment was perfect to store my boots, esp. through the airports where I had to take them out in both AUS and NZ to be inspected. The compartment can also be unzipped, which was nice to be able to store my trekking poles inside so nothing had to be left on the outside. The ice-axe notches came as an added bonus for carabiners and the side pockets were nice for map storage. The pack is super easy to adjust. And as the final bonus, the rain cover is an unnoticeable trait that comes in great for night dew and rainy days. I haven't a bad thing to say about this pack, for travel or backpacking your favorite trails.

My wife and I use these packs for any sort of big trip. They aren't for backpacking and for that reason they may not be the most popular item at Backcountry.com, but I feel like once you get your hands on this pack its value is immediately apparent. It is actually very nice to have a pack that was thought out specifically for travel when that is what you're using the pack for. It can be stripped down super clean if you're going to check it and are worried about straps and buckles, but it actually gives you some organizational options that you just can't get out of a pack designed primarily for hauling loads on the trail. I highly recommend these packs to anyone heading out for a hostilling trip, riding trains or travelling for an extended period.
