Hello and quick question about wearing cross gender backpack.
Hello there, I'm 23 and interested in day hiking.
I was browsing the store, looking for a day pack. I settled on the Gregory Maya 18, not knowing that is was the female model. I tried it on and it fit comfortably, so I'm just wondering what is the difference between the male and female models? Is there a commonly understood difference between the male/female model backpacks? Should I bother returning it if it fits? It didn't seem to look any different than the Miwok 18.
Sorry for leading off with a question.
If it fits, wear it. Nobody can tell the difference from looking at it.
The difference is a female pack is generally for a shorter torso. There may be some adjustment differences, but it's nothing anyone would notice.
Ah, that explains it. My torso is ~17 so that's why it fit so well. I'm glad I got it now.
Thank you for helping me.
