The Vaude Triset 25+4 unisex rucksack has a narrow shape and concave back system that are cool and comfy. The Vaude Triset 25+4 hip fins feel lovely, too, even when carrying heavy loads, and the shoulder straps are nicely padded. A light and incredibly stable pack with twin compression straps and a slim profile that really does hug the whole back. Hard to fault for the money.
