Via Rapida™ 35 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable pack I've ever owned. I am 5'2" and 110 lbs. I have never had a pack that really fit me until the Via Rapida. I bought the small and I love it! I can cinch the hips down and the pack actually stays on my hips. It doesn't pull at the shoulders or dig into me anywhere. The pack has loads of room and many options for carrying gear. I've used it for ski touring, snow shoeing, hiking, and light backpacking. I highly recommend this pack for any small framed woman. My only criticism is the top flap of the pack- if it has too much weight in it, it loosens itself. I tie off the straps to prevent this- and you can just take the whole flap off if you want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from carries loads well I have used this pack doing some winter climbs-both day trips and overnights. It has carried 35lb loads with no problem, and hugs the body when climbing. I am impressed with the pack so far. The only gripes I have are pretty minor-I wish there were gear loops on the hipbelt-I had to add my own. Also, the buckles on the back of the top lid are placed poorly-the straps keep loosening up because the angle is wrong, should have been set lower. I fixed this by replacing these buckles with the camming ones that are on the front. All in all a great pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so versatile Love love love this pack. It's so versatile. Took it on a 2 night hut trip, many day trips xc skiing, and about to take it to Costa Rica.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need this! This pack is great for lightweight backpacking trips, day hikes with lots of gear, and casual travel. It's loaded with features- extra 5L extendable neck, auxiliary gear straps for a tent or sleeping bag, and removable hip belt. My only concern is that the stitching really seem to stretch when the pack's loaded down. So far they've held up, though. I'm 5' 9", 150 lbs, and the medium fits me perfectly.
