I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to measure yourself for a backpack?? We have 2 travel stores where I'm from the first doesn't really have packs they've had the same one for like 6 months and the second doesn't specialize in packs more camping gear. So basically me and my friend are on our own any tips for measuring I'm 5'4 and have a short torso
Thanks

Torso Size: To measure torso size, face the person's back and draw an imaginary line between the tops of the shoulder blades, and another line between the hip bones. Measure the distance between the two lines.
Waist Size: Waist belts should ride on the hips. Measure the circumference of the waist around the hip bones.

Here is a good site with all the info.
