Daypack Back Lengths

Where a daypack is not fitted with a substantial hip harness we specify the back length so you can judge how it might rest on your back. Some long daypacks may be too long for use on very short torsos.

Where we quote a back length of 450mm this is the distance from base seam on the harness panel up to either the shoulder harness top stabiliser strap anchor buckles (if present), or otherwise, the seam where the fixed shoulder harness arms attach to the pack bag (as with the classic canvas daypack models). Our daypack back lengths are either 400mm (S), 450mm (M) or 500mm(L).

You can think of these lengths as corresponding to the backpack sizes S, M and L for packs that ARE fitted with substantial hip harness systems. If you are a size L in this type of pack then you will also be able to comfortably carry a 500mm back length basic daypack.

The majority of our simple daypack models are 450mm, suitable for all but the shortest torsos.
