Torso size guide:

Use a flexible measuring tape and have someone measure your torso from C7 vertebra to the top of your hip bone. Measure multiple times to get the most accurate results. If you fall just between the sizes, we recommend you pick the smaller size.

Torso Size [cm] Size
39-41 XS
42-44 S
45-47 M
48-50 L
51-53 XL

Hip Measurement:

Measure your hip circumference. Be careful to measure around your hips and not your waist! For maximum comfort, the padded part should overlap the front end of your pelvic bone.

Hip Belt size:

S: Padded up to 65cm adjustable 70 to 110
M: Padded up to 75cm adjustable 80 to 126
L: Padded up to 85cm adjustable 90 to 142

Shoulder strap pocket options:

None - Well none 🙂

One side - We will add an integrated pocket on your left side (easier to reach with right hand). If you want pocket on right side let us know in the comment section on the checkout page.

Both sides - We will add integrated stretch pockets on both sides.

Shock cord kit:

The pack comes standard with a shock cord kit which we can install for you.

  • 3,2m of 3mm shock cord
  • 4x snap hook
  • 2x pack hook

Installation options:

  • None - You will receive the complete kit which you can install if you need it.
  • Install only side cords - Only the side cords will be installed. +6g
  • Install all - We will install the whole kit (side+bottom+front) +29g

If you decide to install it by yourself, here are default lengths:

  • Side cord: 2x28cm
  • Front cord: 160cm
  • Bottom cord: 2x50cm

Edge binding:

Even though it doesn't look like it, the edge binding tape can add up to 10% of the final UL backpack weight. Maybe even more if heavier binding tape is used. It's mainly used to prevent fraying and give a cleaner look, but since all materials we work with are quite resistant to fraying, edge binding is not needed. We recommend to save the weight and pack something else to avoid those »stupid light« moments 🙂

If you select Yes in product options add +26g to the final weight. We do not charge any extra for that.

Non-binded edge

Pack volume:

You can choose between two different pack sizes:

  • 42+10L
  • 34+8L

34+8L is a scaled down 42+10L version. More narrow with slightly smaller side pockets, height is the same.
