Being tall sucks

I ve used this bag once for small car trip and for good three day backpacking trip out to Shi Shi beach on the WA coast. I love this bag, it takes the weight and distributes it well with space to spare. My only problem is I'm 6'5' 195 lbs and I have a 34" hips with 32" waist. The stock belt didn't fit and the bag didn't sit well to allow my head to use the awesome space Arc'teryx has designed into the bag. Needless to say I have a long shake down period now that I have a small hip belt for the bag. Don't let my fit disappointment shy you away the bag is bomber. I will have this bag for years to come.

Hey, I feel your pain. I also needed the tall frame and small hipbelt! I don't yet have a hipbelt for my Bora though. Where did you buy yours?

Arcteryx is generally good about swapping out hipbelts for a different size. Contact their warranty dept.
