[pct-l] packs: comfort vs weight: Why packs work, Part 2

My problem with these light packs is that they do not consider that a women's 
body is different then mens.

We have to have a wide and long hip belt.  If we don't, we are carrying the 
weight with our stomachs instead of using our hips.  

I have been carrying a Dana for a long time and spent so much time when I 
first got it getting the right hip belt...Now I would like to go to a lighter 
pack, but they fit me like an overweight guy who has his stomach over his 

My Dana fits me like a glove.  I am very small and can carry a good bit in 
it.  However, empty the thing weighs 8 pounds.  I would be better finding 
something else.
