Your correct backpack size is found by measuring your torso from the seventh vertebra (the big bump where the shoulder slope meets the neck) down the spine to the point in the small of your back which is horizontally level with the top of your hip bones (iliac crest). To find the iliac crest, use your fingers to trace the hip bone upwards until you can feel the point where the top edge of your hip bones curve inwards, on the side of your hip, creating something of a shelf. Holding your finger on the seventh vertebra, measure down your back to the point in the small of your back level with your iliac crest. The measurement is most easily obtained using a string or a cloth tape and help from a friend. This is your torso length, and using it, you can now select the correct frame size.
Pack was used to train for and attempt Mt Rainier in 2015. Overall, I really liked the pack. Easy to pack, enough pockets to hold the small things, but not too compartmentalized. Two points I'd make: 1.) The pack is supposed to be waterproof. We got caught in a winter storm(rain/sleet/snow/hail), and it did get damp inside. Glad I took RMI (JJ) advice and lined with garbage bag. 2.) I heard previous sizing complaints, and in the end I found even though I bought a S/M, I needed a M/L hip belt. That made it the perfect pack!
Use Situation: RMI 4-day Rainier summit attempt
Great pack... good features, and great balance. sucks that the side pockets are small, but you can always use a biner... simple, water resistant and perfect for both day long alpine climbs or week long - if you know how to pack efficiently.
Use Situation: Day and weekend backpacking/climbs.
