Ordinarily, having a pack with an adjustable torso length--like the one that you find on the Jansport Forsh7th 50 Backpack--is a good thing. But when you have a sticky-fingered roommate, the fact that the Forsyth 50 adjusts from 16 to 19 inches just means that when you're gearing up for a day or weekend in the backcountry, you just might find that it's missing from the gear closet.

Sturdy fabrics stand up to abrasion and an adjustable suspension system evenly distributes your load for optimal weight transfer between a breathable EVA back panel, ergonomic dual density shoulder straps and a molded EVA hipbelt.
