    The problem with the S25 is that it's long and the bottom of the bag may end up reaching the end of your butt or something, which isn't good for carrying heavy loads. If you have a long torso, I think it should be okay? I'm 5'3". I wear mine with rather short straps. That and my long torso means that the base of my S25 ends up touching the top of my jeans pocket, which is still feels like 'correct' backpack carrying.

      Thanks for all the input. I am going to go with the 25, as it is more for weekend outings, and some 2 day overnights and I think I need the space. Also, I tend to wear my backpacks up high, so hope that it will fit me. If not, I know TB is awesome for returns, and I will just order the 19!! Thanks all, pics to come once the bag arrives!!!! (AAAAHHHH!! is it here yet?!)

        I can't wait to see it. I ordered the 19, which is on back order.

          What type of material is the external for this Grey/Wasabi combo? I am pretty close to ordering it!

            The grey is cordura, and the wasabi is 200d Dyneema.

              Those of you with grey bags in hand, how does it compare to steel tone-wise? I just received the LOVELY S25 in grey, and it is the same color as my parapak steel pouch--much darker than I thought it would be. Once I can detach the small children from my leg, I will take a pic and post, but I thought I'd ask first to see what everyone else was experiencing. (Still haven't used or practice packed due to crazy work/crazy life this week, and it is making me nuts!!)
