Women's L.L.Bean Ridge Runner Pack, 15 L is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and roomy Bought this pack for a trip up to Acadia National Park. Fitted it with a 1.5L bladder full of water and kept a Nalgene with an electrolyte replacement beverage in a side pocket (Nalgene never once fell out - pockets are deep and kept everything in them very secure). Still plenty of room to fit extra clothes, sun screen, first aid kit and lots of snacks inside the pack with the water. Wore it for a 6 hour hike (longest) and was very very comfortable on both the shoulders and waist. Great pack! Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointed Backpack is extremely nice quality and worth the price. I was very disappointed when this arrived at my house though. The platinum color shown on the website looks nothing like the actual colors when you see it in person. It appears to be a light grey with very light blue accents. In reality it is a dark grey with dark blue accents. Very disappointed in the misrepresentation of the colors. I'll likely be returning this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Day Pack I searched everywhere and tried many day packs and this is the only one that worked. It is sized and shaped for women and holds everything you need for a day hike. The pockets are well designed and placed. The price is right, and the colors are nice without screaming. Thank you for this thoughtful design.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor water bottle design This is a nice little pack. However, on my first hike my water bottle fell out numerous times and there was no way to tighten the pockets. The pockets are very loose, angled, and too shallow. Very disappointing. Returned the pack and bought the Stowaway Day Pack which holds a bit more and has mesh water bottle holders that can be cinched tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, versatile and attractive pack Wow this is a great backpack! I am an avid hiker and was looking for a small day pack that could accommodate a lunch and possibly a camera. I think this will be perfect, but I actually discovered it when I was looking for a ski backpack. (By the way, I purchased the blue color which is a lovely color - rich and elegant looking.) I recently switched to walking to the lift in Park City and wanted a pack to stow my shoes so I didn't have to walk in ski boots. I also wanted room for a water bottle, different lens for my ski goggles, and possibly an extra layer. This pack is perfect! It is super light and low profile. I can keep it on while riding the lift and I don't notice it at all while skiing. It is cut well to fit a woman, and both straps are very comfortable and stay in place. There are several pockets (one lined) to keep small items safe and easily accessible. I purchased this after going into many expensive ski gear shops in Park City and not finding anything nearly as nice looking or well designed. Way to go LL Bean! (The LL Bean store in Park City is really great and the staff are very friendly and helpful.)
