Your torso length, not height, determines your pack size. There is a pack sizing explanation on our pack product pages but to reiterate, we recommend the following to determine your correct sizing:
- Tilt your head slightly forward to locate the bony bump at the base of your neck. This is your 7th cervical (or C7) vertebra.
- Using a flexible tape measure, have someone measure starting at that spot and running down along the curve of your spine.
- Place your hands on your hips so you can feel your iliac crest, which serves as the “shelf” of your pelvic girdle. It is the imaginary horizontal plane going across your hip bones. Position your hands so your thumbs are reaching behind you near your spine at that imaginary horizontal plane across your hip bones
- Have your friend finish measuring at the point where the tape crosses an imaginary line drawn between your thumbs. This distance is your torso length.
- Small 15” – 17”
- Medium 17” – 19”
- Large 19” – 21”
- Tall 21”+
***If your measurement falls on the border between sizes, we suggest you choose the larger torso size. Ex: If you have a 17” torso, choose a medium, or if you have a 19” torso, choose a large.
