great find on 03/31/2010 09:17:26 MDT Print View

This is a great find. I picked up a women's medium jam last month for around this price. I have an 18.5 torso, 38 chest, and the fit is good. The hipbelt is flared out a bit more than the men's, to better suit a female's figure, but in all honesty, when the belt is cinched tight, it does what its suppose to do. The harness is wide enough, and the belt distributes weight. Other than a small inverted triangle logo next the the word 'Jam' that designates this as a womens pack, this is no way to tell this is a female pack...especially if you buy the gray/grease color which they still have a medium in. Give it a shot, it may work for ya..and of course its REI, so return it if it don't. Another perk, the straps are all shorter, so the women's pack weighs less than the mens. Good luck!

thanks. i considered getting one to try, but im 6'1" and i doubt the medium would be anywhere close. im right between a medium and a large for the guy's pack sizes. plus im happy with my golite pinacle.

sizing on 03/31/2010 09:38:01 MDT Print View

yeah, I think that would be cutting it too close with your measurements, and also, as you said, you already have a pinnacle. According to the sizing chart, both women's and men's medium packs are to fit 17.5 to 19.5 torso. However, I've always felt golite packs were a lil undersized, and in the case of my womens jam, I don't really think that anyone with a spine length more than 18.5-19 would find it comfy. They also dont have a Large in the women's series. Still good for someone else out there.

Got mine! I hope she likes the blue color. If it all works out, I'll be posting a GG Virga on the Swap soon.

make sure of the weight on 04/01/2010 11:11:28 MDT Print View

i would wait to see what the weight is on the Jam before selling the Virga. I ordered a Jam that was supposed to be 26 oz, and it was 31, so back it went. My virga is 20 oz and the medium GoLite was too small on my back.
