Good observations.

This is the frame from my wife's pack and is a little short for me. My pack also has a front bag which keeps everything in balance front and back.

I also quickly threw the pack on for the photos. If I tighten the shoulder straps the carbon fiber tubing curves to match the pronounced hunchback that I call my own.

Take a look at my next picture post. I'll tighten up the shoulder straps and you'll see what I mean.

Part of the challenge working with carbon fiber is to find a length and stiffness that supports the load but bends enough to conform to one's back curve. My wife's back is very flat and straight. The frame in the pictures fits her well without even bending.
