The size of your backpack has a big impact on how comfortable it is. That’s why it’s important to choose the right size and shape.
STEP 1: MEASURING YOUR BACK LENGTH
Take a tape measure and place it at the bottom of your back (in line with the upper edge of your hip bone). Measure along the contours of your body to the 7th cervical vertebra, which you can feel sticking out on the back of your neck.
STEP 2: THE RIGHT BACKPACK FOR YOUR BACK LENGTH
Our ORTOVOX backpacks are available in different sizes for two different back lengths. The recommendations for the back lengths are:
|The REGULAR BACK SYSTEM fits a back length from 42–50cm.*
The SHORT BACK SYSTEM fits a back length from 36–44cm.*
*Please note that these are recommendations and backpacks should always be tried on to ensure a perfect fit.
