    Default Womans rucksack

    Hi all, i am after a decent rucksack for my 16 year old daughter,to do her Duke of Edd expedition.She borrowed my jack Wolf skin sack last weekend.She came back complaining that it was too large for her.
    Sack needs to be large enough for a weekends camping,bag,stove food 1/2 a tent etc.etc,etc.

    My 13 yo daughter (148cm tall) uses a Karrimor Monsoon Ladies sac. The main thing is to get a ladies sac where the back length, how the shoulder straps run down the front and hip size which is where the weight is carried are matched to the female figure. To be honest there is no substitute for going to a shop and trying them on for size.

    The problem for kids camping with the Scouts or DoE is that all the kit is the same that we as adults carry so they still need a 50-70l sac for a hiking camp.

    My daughter has just used a Berghaus Freeflow IV 35+8.

    She is quite slight and this pack has won her vote hands down.

    I know they aren't cheap but the lady Berghaus range is worth every penny I've paid. I've got three of them in different sizes and they really are comfortable.
    The adjustable backplate and the freeflow feature make all the difference.
    I'd happily lend but I'm the other end of the country....

    This is the basic model (my big one is now 10 years old and still going strong so it's not expensive) comes in at just under 90 but it will last her as she grows too.

    smaller sizes available too
    http://www.outdoorkit.co.uk/products...category_id=80 though I have the Bullfrog one and for a weekend on light kit it's excellent

    Usual disclaimer, no connection with the company, just looked for a suitable link.

    I suppose the best bet is to get to a biggish store with enough variety to try different makes though if someone doesn't offer.
    Hope things go well for her.

    cheers,
    Toddy
