Write your question here...Two questions:
1. Can you reverse wrap the hip belt so it is out of the way when not in use?
2. I have a 33 waist yet the smaller hipbelt is 29-34...the larger 34 and up?? Love the pack but fearful I will be in-between sizes and not able to snug down tight enough in summer if I go large....wont have enough room in winter if small. Anyone have similar experience?

Hi, I hope these answers are helpful.

1. Yes, you can wrap it around the pack and buckle the hip belt that way if you'd like.
2. I have a 28" waist and have probably another inch or two on the medium if I had to. There's PLENTY of room to expand too – I'm not sure but I'd guess the medium could fit a waist size bigger than 34". My advice is to go with the medium if the torso size is a better fit; the belt should be accommodating, and if not you always have BackCountry's great return policy.
