Torso & Hip Belt Sizing

Hip Belt Size

Below you will find a list of sizing for our hip belts. The first measurement (the absolute minimum) is the total length of foam and clip. The second measurement is the maximum the straps will extend to. Using a measuring device, pull it around your back at the level of your iliac crest and connect it in front of you. This will be your hip belt size. Using this pack for a thru-hike? Please that weight loss into consideration when selecting your hip belt size.

Small Hip Belt – 25″ of foam and a total of 32″ of adjustability.

Medium Hip Belt – 28″ of foam and a total of 38″ of adjustability

Large Hip Belt – 33″ of foam and a total of 44 ” of adjustability

X Large Hip Belt – 40″ of foam and a total of 50″ of adjustability

Torso Size Info

All packs are built to your specific torso. To find your torso length you will need to find your C7 vertebrae and your iliac crest/hip shelf and measure the distance between them. Still need help finding your torso? Check out this video https://youtu.be/Vl1wHHMcSrA

Packs without a hip belt will measure from the bottom of the pack to where the shoulder straps are sewn in. This is the same for packs with a 1″ removable hip belt or fanny pack.

Packs with a padded hip belt will measure from the center of the hip belt to where the straps are sewn in. If you choose to have load lifters then your pack will measure from center of hip belt to the load lifters.

All orders placed on 11/26 - 12/2 will have a one week processing time. Happy holidays and stay safe!!!
