The great question of most adventurers is, how to get more comfort on a short or long distance road?

Measuring The Torso

Why Is Torso Length Important?

The most important factor to take into account when buying a backpack is the length of the torso, that is, as it goes from the base of the neck to the beginning of the bone of the pelvis. Technically speaking, it is the distance between the beginning of the iliac crest and the C7 vertebra. Regardless of the weight you are carrying, you will want a backpack that fits comfortably to your frame. To do this, you have to rely on the length of the torso, not the height, to choose the one most suitable for you.

How To Measure The Torso?

Tilt your head forward and locate the most prominent bone at the base of the neck. This bone is the C7 vertebra and the beginning of the torso.

Place your hands on your hips so that your index fingers align with the beginning of the basin bone and point to the navel and thumbs pointing at the spine.

Draw an imaginary line between your thumbs and follow the line to the point where you cross the spine. That’s the end of the torso. The beginning of the basin bone also has the name of iliac crest. It is the bone that supports the weight of the backpack when the waist belt around the waist.

Stand up straight, and ask a friend to measure the distance from the C7 vertebra to the imaginary line between the thumbs. This distance corresponds to the length of the torso.

Measure The Hips

Why Is Hip Size Important?

If you carry heavy loads over long distances, it is much less tiring to carry your weight on your hips than on your shoulders. In fact, approximately 80% of the weight of a backpack should be supported by the hips, so it is really important to find a suitably adjusted abdominal belt.

How To Measure Hip Size?

Take a flexible tape measure and wrap it around the upper hips (not the waist). It is the same point where you have thumbs and index fingers when measuring the length of the torso.

 Custom Settings

Once you have adjusted the backpack and determined torso length and waist belt size, it is important to make other adjustments as you go. To get started, loosen all straps on the harness and waist belt and put 5-10 kg in the backpack, evenly distributed.

Then follow the steps below for maximum optimization:

1.Abdominal closure: Place the backpack on the back and position the top of the cushioned hip protection so that it is about 3 cm above the iliac crest (beginning of the basin bone).Then, snap the belt buckle around and tighten the belt.Most of the weight of the backpack should now be supported by the waist belt.

Suggested fit: The cushioned section should envelop and cover the front area of ​​the bones of the pelvis, but should leave a margin of at least 3 cm on either side of the central buckle of the abdominal belt.

2.Shoulder Straps: After adjusting the waist belt, pull down and back the straps at the bottom of the shoulder straps.In doing so, you are adjusting the backpack to the body.The area where the top of the shoulder straps attaches to the back panel should be 3-5cm below the shoulders.

3.Cargo lifts: Cargo lifts begin at the top of the shoulder straps and are attached to the body of the backpack above the shoulders.Pull the straps so that they are straightened out, but be careful not to over tighten as it will create a gap between the shoulders and the shoulder straps.

Adjustment tip: For large backpacks, the lifting lugs should ideally form a 45-60 degree angle between the shoulder straps and the backpack body. In the case of backpacks of less than 50 L, since the height of the back of the backpack is lower, the lifting lugs can come directly from the shoulders or have a negative angle and attach to the body of the backpack. In this case, the lifting lugs act more like compression lugs.

4.Pectoral Strap: Locate the chest strap between the shoulder straps and adjust it up or down so that it is comfortable on the chest.Then snap the buckle into place and tighten the chest strap.

5.Load Stabilizer Loops: Some of Thule’s larger technical backpacks are equipped with load stabilizer straps that attach the waist belt to the body of the backpack.For better stabilization of the load, pull the load stabilizer lugs forward toward the front of your body.

 How To Pack In The Backpack

A backpack with a good packaging will contribute to its balance, stability and comfort. So you can enjoy your walks to the fullest. Here are some suggestions on how to best pack in the backpack.

  1. Place heavier items such as food, camping stoves, and water in the middle of the backpack next to the spine.This holds most of the weight of the backpack, the center of gravity, attached to the body.If heavy items are placed too high, the load may become too unbalanced and unstable.If they are too low, the backpack may fall out.
  2. Lighter items, such as sleeping bags, awnings and clothing, should be placed above, below, and behind heavy items.
  3. Raincoats, headlights, snacks, and other essentials should be placed on the top or outer pockets of the backpack.

Negative Points:

The part of the removable divider of the backpack does not split 100%, because if it has some small part it can pass through the sides of the divider and it will be in the sleeping bag compartment.

Another detail is that the backpack has no raincoat, as the manufacturer Thule does not say if the backpack is waterproof or if the raincoat is sold separately.
