What is the length of the hipbelt and shoulder straps?
The Small/Medium (48 liter/2900 cubic inch) size will accommodate torsos ranging from 13"-19" while the Medium/Large (50 liter/3000 cu in) fits 16"-21" torsos. That info has been drawn directly from Kelty's website, but regarding the actual length of each of those straps, I cannot seem to locate such info. In any case, I don't think it's really the strap lengths you should be focused on, but instead what size pack would accommodate your body, if you are considering purchasing. Hope this helps!
It's not. You'll have to buy a cover if you want it to stay dry.
Thats right. Its only 420D Polyester. Click here to check rain covers on Backcountry: http://www.backcountry.com/Store/catalog/search.jsp?q=backpack+covers&s=a

Timeless and Functional

This is an updated version of a timeless design and my favorite pack for many situations. I've owned many new good quality internal frame packs, but keep going back to this one.
A back saver for heavier loads and multi-day trips as it effectively distributes the weight to your hips rather than your shoulders. The padding on the lumbar belt and shoulder straps is very good.
These packs are highly adjustable for fit. I'm -5'8" -165lbs -42"chest -30" waist and 18" torso. Even the S/M adjusts out enough to fit me.
Strapping my tent, bag, and pad to the outside leaves 3000 cu in of internal storage which is plenty for me personally. If you need more, step up to the Trekker.
Good organization and access. 6 external pockets, an internal divider, and water bladder compatible. The water bottle pocket on the outside fits my 40oz Klean Kanteen perfectly.
External frames are great for distance hiking, load carrying, and ventilation. That's why many of us still use them. They don't fit as tight as most internal frames, so I still use an internal frame pack for more challenging technical mountaineering.
Yes it's a somewhat old school design, but there's a reason why it's been used for decades.

Write your question here...So is the Kelty Yukon not to be reccommended to full size adults (@ 5'10" 220 ibs????????????
That's correct. It's designed for short, slender people. You're not short. Or slender.
Internal? or External?
This pack is an external frame, whereas I prefer an internal. It is a large pack did not have the back support I needed on long hikes. I used this pack on 3 different occasions. Total of 76 miles logged under one.
