What kind of pack cover have folks found...
What kind of pack cover have folks found to fit this pack?
I would suggest the XL Gregory cover:
If my height is 190 cm / 6'2 what size is...
If my height is 190 cm / 6'2 what size is best to take - L or XL?
Packs are measured by torso length which is from the C7 vertebra (that bump where your shoulders and neck meet) and your hip-shelf (the very top of your hipbone). Torso sizing is as follows: M (18 -21 inches) L (20-23 inches) XL (22-25 inches)
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
A great pack! Plenty of room for my things including my Ham radio gear and dog stuff.Not sure how well the buckles will hold up and would like longer straps for my pads on the bottom.Make sure you spend extra time fitting the pack and you will be pleased with it.
Great pack for long backpacking journeys, plenty of room to fit my rather bulky sleeping bag, tent, sleeping pad, pillow and other essential items. There is exceptional extra room for food and water after all of the essentials are packed i'm very excited to use this pack. The support it provides to your back is remarkable
