I am a pretty big guy. I am 6'4", and around 290 lbs (trying to get down to 275). I was considering the Kelty Redcloud 110 for the cost, but have been wondering about the Argon 110. Any advice? Also, does the size of the pack only refer to load capacity and space, or does it have to do with the frame size as well? I assume I should certainly buy the XL. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Osprey makes some of the most comfortable and durable packs money can buy! If you need all out performance and tons of carrying space the Argon 110 is top notch. The 110 refers to the capacity of the pack while the size refers to the frame size which is a custom fit for your torso. At your size the XL will be the way to go. I am 6' 2" 225lbs and I rock an XL with a bit of room to expand so you would probably fit it just fine.
