This is a tiny pack and is made for someone 5'2'' and under. I kept trying to pull the pack down to my lower back where the padding is located, but realized that wasn't going to happen. The DAKINE packs come with a size tag on them and this pack is checked as a "girls" size. There are also small and large lengths available. If you measure your spine as shown by DAKINE, most women will fit in a small pack. I'm 5'4'' and this was just a bit too short for me based on the listed measurements. I really wanted it because of the pink, of course going fashion before function but had to go with function this time and re-order the small. Totally awesome pack for the shorties though!
