Default packs/belts for larger people

is there a place that deals with larger travellers - im not humongous but about a size 18-20 but i have asthma and cant have anything resticting me too much, would like to have quite a few more inches spare in case my chest is feeling tight while travelling. also the same for money belts, i want a very large one.i find if i have anything constriciting my chest at all it makes me very out of breath (even though i am pretty fit), have oinly had asthma for 3 months so dont want to push it

any advice people? i live in the UK, would have to be available to buy online

whats an 18-20 in centimeters

if you can measure from your shoulder to the point where your hips stick out, and around your waist. a lot of pack companies offer fitment charts.

I am mostly familiar with american brands but we have a lot of world wide punks who can hook you up

nice! errr i dont have a tape i think ill have to go try some on, im more worried about it being restrictive on my chest and if that happens im fucked!!

will check some out in millets, might have to experiment a bit then maybe come back to your offer and post it up on here what i need.

ive backpacked without a pack for 6 years (i carry a big ex-army bag over me shoulders) but i think its finally time to invest in a proper pack.

proper bags can make life easier, i wear a courier style bag because my left shoulder is crap and likes to swell up. a decently fit female specific bag with an strecthy sternum strap shouldnt put pressure on you chest, just on your hips and your shoulders
