Definitely try them on in person if possible. I bought the Crestrail and it is a great, quality pack. I wanted it to work for me because it had so many features that I loved. Unfortunately the hip belt did not fit me right. I have not heard anyone else complain about it. Backpacks are very personal, what fits one person might be uncomfortable to another.
The hip belts of both the Crestrail and Aether are new for this year.
And be kind toward one another
