Our newest pack, the Pandora is a version of the Kolob pack made for people of limited altitude, mainly women in the height range of 5'0" to 5'4". We took the Shenanigans and cut out 2" of height. The goal was to make a small-person-fitting pack with as much capacity as possible (but not a Shinumo)... a go-anywhere, do-anything pack. At 33 liters (38 including the back pleated pocket) it is big enough for most anything except overnight canyons.

The Pandora has the carefully sculpted 3-point shoulder straps of the Shenanigans, plus the women's small wrap-around hipbelt. The back is supported by a plastic framesheet plus 1/2" of foam. Superficially it is similar to a Spry pack, but it is wider and deeper, and thus substantially more voluminous. The better shoulder straps are specifically designed to fit small women well.
Kolob / Shenanigans / Pandora features: large removable lid; pleated back helmet pocket; PVC laminate on the bottom and bottom sides; drainage; strong handle; inside rack for your gear; watertank pocket.
Volume: 33 Liters Body and Lid; 38 Liters including the pleated back pocket.
