The North Face Terra 55 Internal Frame Pack
Nice pack for youth/small adult
Although this is a youth size pack, I am a 21-year-old woman and this was the one in the store that fit me best. I am 5'2" and 115 lbs, so I'm quite small. I took this pack with me to Ontario on a four-day stationary (non-camping) trip. While I didn't do a lot of walking in it, it was quite comfortable and definitely fit all of my stuff. I would like it to have more pockets on the outside/more places for carabiners, however. One convenient thing was that it has zippers in many different places, so you can open the pack from many different places.

Although a good sized bag and very versatile, it lacks the amount of pockets I like. But I'm a pocket kind of guy.

Yes, this pack is a little expensive for the size and you can get a larger pack for the same price. However, the quality and comfort of this pack is difficult to beat. I have owned appx. 4 different packs and I returned all of then except this on! Best of Luck!

Confusion about the Terra 55
The North Face website has the Terra 55 as Women and Youth only. I bought one at [@]and became confused by this. Finally found out that [@]appears to cary a unisex one. The rep on the North Face chat didn't even realize it until I pursued it. Am I buying a 55 that is designed to fit a male? It sure seems that way and its a well-kept secret!

Great bag and great service!
I bought this bag as a gift for my boyfriend for a trip we're taking to Europe in August. He hasn't used it yet, but the bag is everything I hoped it'd be: durable, comfortable, easily adjustable and with lots of pockets for extra little things. A very attractive bag, definitely a keeper! He's using it for a 3 week trip, and I have no doubt it'll be big enough for all the essentials.

This is a great backpack. Lots of room, lightweight, and it makes you look ultra pro wearing it. I fit a sleeping bag and a week's worth of clothes in it.

Great pack good quality but....
A great pack overall very comfortable back straps, side straps for access gear. A few things that would add a better touch to this pack is a couple of side pockets for flashlight, Knife, you know your small stuff that you want easy access to there is only one pocket on the top of the pack and one on the inside.

Over all quality
This pack has plenty of room for a multi-day hike. Easy access to anything packed from the bottom to top, and it's very comfortable. I've had mine for half a year and have yet to see even a thread out of place. For the price, this is very very recommended. It is just as capable as some other $450 packs I've seen.
