Pros: Holds a ton of stuff.
100oz bladder
Form fitting.
Shoulder strap design is women-specific, it's not just a rebranded men's version.

Cons: None.

Recommendation: My wife has this pack and it holds enough water, food and gear to last a whole day, AND she can fit her Canon 40D camera with 200MM lens in the outer pocket.

Pros: Absolutly love this pack!! I used to just have a standard day pack "backpack" I would have to stop when I was thirsty and it wasn't very comfortable when I loaded it down with stuff. Plus it wasn't very sturdy, shifted around on rough rides. No problem getting used to the chest and belly staps, actually prefer them. Much more secured feeling.

Cons: Zilch, couldn't ride with out it, feels weird if I just go around the block with out it on!

Recommendation: Any one that is comfortable with using a backpack will totally dig this pack.

Pros: Not too bulky for having huge capacity for water & necessities; stays put while riding; lots of pockets; nice colors!

Cons: None - I don't even think twice about taking this pack on shorter rides since it doesn't feel heavy no matter how much water you're toting around.

Recommendation: Great women's pack, same capacity and features as the M.U.L.E.; enough room for everything so you're always prepared!
