Yet no 42l version for women? What, do women not do winter climbing? Not the reviewer's fault of course, but am pretty tired of seeing reviews for stuff where women are still treated as second class....so I wont be buying one and will stick with the Scandinavian and Swiss brands that don't  discriminate.....

Hi Jadey,

Apologies for the delayed reply, and for not addressing this within the review. It is something I had noticed and hoped to pose the question to ME, but ran out of time due to the birth of my daughter a couple of weeks ago. 

I've just got back off paternity leave this week, and we'll be seeing Mountain Equipment at OutDoor this weekend, so bear with and we'll see if we can get an answer for you.
