The Cutaway pack currently comes in two sizes – Smaller and Taller. Due to the lack of hip-belt and the height-adjustable chest straps, both sizes will ride comfortably on most people. Needs such as having a particularly large or small torso, having flexibility issues, or needing the smallest possible pack volume can dictate which size you select.
Poor Flexibility: If you have flexibility issues that affect your ability to access water bottles, select a larger pack height so that the pack bottom rides lower on your torso.
Small Pack Volume: If you expect to carry small volumes often, select a pack with a shorter pack height. It will have the same max volume but will pack down smaller.
Strap Length: (see video below) A measurement along the path of the strap can help you select your correct size. In order to get an accurate measurement, stand up straight with your back against the wall. Find the base of your sternum where the bone ends, and imagine a horizontal line traveling across your rib cage. For women, this will be at or close to your bra-line. Determine if you would like to wear your straps wide or close in on your chest and find a point on the horizontal line that would represent this strap position. With a measuring tape or string, measure from this point up over the middle of your shoulder, and to the wall behind you at the same height as the top of your shoulder. Select the size that more closely resembles your measurement. Due to the height-adjustable chest straps, measurements up to 4″ shorter than the specified strap length can still be accommodated. It is not recommended that you select strap lengths shorter than your measurement.
