I am looking at the Miura 50 but wondering if it is worth getting the 55 litler (tall) for the extra room. I am 5'10 and i am between a 34-36 waist. I will be using it for trad climbing and winter hiking. I am worried that the tall might be too big.
It is strongly suggested to get the correct size, which is most likely the regular torso size for you. If you have a long torso, you may be able to fit into the tall, but don't get it if will be too big for you.
I think you'll be really happy with the 50 to fit your trad gear anyway, as long as you don't have an abnormally large rack. I'm able to fit my 10.2x60m, my rack, shoes, guidebook, helmet, harness, chalkbag and anchor stuff into my 42 - although just barely. A 50 would give you room for some food/water and a little more gear.
