To choose a backpack or vest which fits you perfectly, Ortovox suggest you measure your torso length and/or height then select the pack you are most interested in from the table below.

Long 180 - 210 47 - 56

How to Measure Your Torso & Waist


Ask a friend to run a tape measure from the top of your shoulders (i.e the same place where the collar on a crew neck T shirt finishes), down your back to your waistline (ie the small of your back, at the same height as your naval or the top of your hip bone).


Run a soft tape measure around the narrowest part of your waist, just above your hip bone and in line with your naval.
