Get a pack that fits you. Inevitably you hear that advice when talk turns to pack selection. But if you’re new to backpacks, achieving a proper fit from all those straps and buckles can seem daunting

Wayne—who made his first backpack as a 14-year-old Boy Scout—was the first to offer packs designed for different torso lengths and with different harness and waist belt sizes.


This a good refresher, especially if you've been updating your Trailspace profile and wondering what exactly is your torso length.
