To find your torso length, you will need a helper and a string or a cloth measuring tape.
- Step 1: Stand up straight and bend at the neck so your nose is pointing toward the floor. Ask the helper to locate the bone poking up in the back of your neck. This protruding bone is the top of the measurement.
- Step 2: Put your hands on your hips with your thumbs pointing behind you. The imaginary line that would be created if your thumbs touched each other is the top of the hip bone. This imaginary line is the bottom of the measurement.
- Step 3: Have the helper run the tape down the back of your neck along your spine, starting at the protruding neck bone, and stopping at the hip bone. Now you’ve got your torso length.
- Step 4: Now place the tape on the backpack measuring from the bottom of the lumbar pad to the adjustments. Set the pack to the closest webbing placement on your backpack.
