    Womans pack

    Hey guys looking at getting the mrs a smallish pack as she wants to come hunting and nothing i have is suitable. She is bloody tiny so unsure what would be suitable and comfortable for her.
    Any suggestions that will not break the bank and are user friendly ( she is only 5'2" and is 55kg~). Looked in Macpac the other day but just spent a few bob on boots and not keen to spend up large on a pack until she is more into it.
    cheers

    I thought about this with my Mrs, I thought about getting a decent day pack. When we get to the hut or set up camp, unload her gear into the separate compartment in my pack and we hunt using the day pack. Means she cant pack to much shit either.

    @Projects that is my thinking but my big pack has a clip on 15lt on the front which she can use and i run that method when we have been in the past but may have to step up to a 30ltr+ kind of size in stoney creek etc. @Rangidan i am watching those but more something i would buy when she is competent with carrying a load as she is a little lass
    Cheers for the tag @chainsaw will see what that turns up

    Macpack Torlesse 35 or 50 are a good option.

    Is she short in the leg too? About the same specs as one of the gadgettes and finding it difficult to find something to drive that she can reach the pedals on.

    Suppose they've been out of the water a little too long to decide they're undersized and throw them back?
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    One of these might sort them out.

    Look hard at the Osprey packs, they have a great range of packs specifically for the ladies.
    My wife is a very similar build to your wife, I think she has one of the Tempest models.

    If she only needs a day pack then a fleece pikau from hunt tech is cheap and comfy.. quiet in the bush. And fits a surprising amount of stuff in it

    Deuter Fox 30 or 40. Kids packs but open up quite a bit in the straps, might offer a good fit
