Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I really REALLY want to like this pack. It's the perfect size and I love the hydration system. I knew I was taking a gamble purchasing a men's pack because the sizing can be funky for women...and I think that's the issue with this pack for me. Because of the stiffness along the back of the pack (which I thought I would like), the pack is too wide to fit a woman's body between the shoulder blades (at least for me...I'm slim, but I have very wide shoulders for a girl). It rubs my shoulder blades all weird, and it makes me very reluctant to take this pack on an outing that is more than an hour because I don't want to get rubbed beyond annoyance and end up carrying it by hand. Over a heavier softshell or fleece, it's OK, but I want this to be my go-to pack...and right now, I'm too scared to take it out on anything serious. Not good :( Will probably end up sending it back even though I keep willing it to fit me right... Major bummer. Fits my boyfriend just dandy though! :)
