I'm 5' 4" and use a Rambler. Both sizes fit me fine, but the Rambler holds a ton when opened up and is more manageable when in its smaller mode. While short, I do have a long torso (long enough that some of my bikes are 54 cm, even though my legs are more 50-52 cm sized, and I tend to fit a large in backpacks), so you may have a different experience. My wife, who is much taller than me but with a short torso, couldn't find a bag of theirs she felt good with. They say that they will be coming out with something for smaller torso folks but that's all I've heard.
