Sizing and Fitting of your Osprey Pack
Fit is the key to pack performance. Take the time to get it right. Most Osprey packs are available in multiple sizes to fit a range of torso lengths. To find your torso length, have a friend measure your back along the spine (as shown in the picture below) from the level of your iliac crest (the top of your hipbones) to your C7 (the knobby bone at the base of your neck).
|Kresta 20 Litre Backpack
I am a small female but very active so to find a bag that was light and not to broad on the shoulders or rubbing on my neck with good support was very hard and very important! This bag ticked all my boxes with all the little pockets in the right places, the chest and waist adjustable support straps for long hiking days, the camel back with the handy protection for cold weather so it doesn’t feeze for winter sports was a bonus. All the little tags on the outside where I can attach my speakers, hat, sanitizer and whatever else I need for hiking on the outside where perfect and the size was on point, plenty of room for snacks all my big balms and sunscreens and for cold imbetween weather a standard size jumper a small packable towel and my summer wetsuit all fit with the weight being distributed evenly for comfort on big days I couldn’t recommend it more for a female who always finds bags to large and heavy. Only thing I wish it had was a water bottle holder on the outside but that’s because I do massive hikes and always like extra tho there is still plenty of room to carry inside the bag it’s just a feature I generally like also on the outside but all in all 5 stars from me!
