The size we have is ideal for taller folk with an average to thin waist.

They also have the G5 for $90 and the G6 Whisper for $60.
Also, Check out the upcoming gear:

1. The Mariposa Plus 2007 model. This one is in the last stages of development
and should make it's first appearance in very early 2007. It will feature new,
more traditional Small, Medium, and Large sizing and a removable waist belt
for a more precise fit. If you are a long trail hiker, thru-hiker, or bushwacker
this may be the pack for you.

2. The Miniposa. After much cajoling from myself and anxious customers Glen
gets it, sort of. It'll never make a sub 3-lb list but for the rest of us mere
mortals it's a sweet spot combo of features, volume, and weight. I have a
prototype and it's my go-to pack. I love it and we'll be putting some out
shortly after the Plus. You've heard about it, a smaller (mini) Mariposa.
Details forthcoming. BTW, color will be a pale grey.

3. Code named "The Murmur", this is the pack that Glen Van Peski carries these
days and sometime soon we'll be offering it. Part G5, part Whisper, it's the
pack many insanely low base weight heroes have yearned for. Nuff said.

4. The poncho anorak rain thingy. NOT a poncho/tarp, just some great dedicated
rain gear. Imagine a rain jacket that fits over your pack, is really light but
not all floppy in the breeze and you're getting close. The first prototype of
this is looking very good.
