BACKPACK/TORSO LENGTH SIZES
Depending on pack volume and intended use the suspension system of a backpack becomes an essential feature. Defining torso length is not necessarily critical on a daypack but crucial on backpacking or alpine touring packs, as only perfect fit can warrant transfer of a bulk of the pack weight to the hips.
The center of the hipbelt ideally rests on the hip bone crest (pelvis) in order to bear the bulk of the load (refer to diagram) especially on large internal frame backpacks. But no rule without exceptions and sometimes a shorter torso length is better, for example in alpine or mountaineering situations where a short back allows easy access to the climbing harness.
How to measure torso length
Use a measuring tape to measure the distance between the top edge of the shoulders or C7 vertebrae (the one that protrudes when facing down) to the top crest of the hip bone (pelvis).
Backpack Suspension Size Ranges:
Medium (M) = 19 - 20.5 in / 48 - 52 cm
Long (L) = 21 - 23 in / 53 - 58 cm
Note: Even the most elaborate suspension system can only work perfectly when fitted correctly! And as no two backs are identical, we recommend testing backpacks with sample weights in an outdoor specialty shop.
SLEEPING BAG SIZING
EXPED sleeping bags come in different lengths and widths, depending on the style, to ensure a good fit for a variety of different users and body types.

Tested it at home as soon as it arrived. Love how quickly it worked, the size, and light!
Mostly a Good Product
What I like: It is a simple device that works, and does its job well. It quickly blows up my double-wide pad without issue. It also looks good and it is easy to charge. What I don’t like: for starters, there aren’t any directions—there are a lot of pieces parts and understanding what they have in mind wasn’t immediately clear in my mind. The big flaw: while this pump is worthy of a prize for industrial design (it really is a pretty gadget!), figuring out the buttons is very difficult. The light and the fan utilize the same rubber cover, and there is a raised symbol that—in the best of light in my living room—is nearly impossible to distinguish from each other. Filling up your pad at night in your tent is going to require a lot of fumbling—each button behaves differently and remember, there aren’t any directions. You could do a lot worse (I sure have!), and I’m sure that with practice, I’ll get used to the quirky interface. This IS my go-to pump for the future.
The Ultralight Compromise Hack
Looking for equipment that keeps your pack light is always a compromise between comfort and necessity. This little gem gives you both-an adequate lantern for when the sun goes down, plus inflates your pad very quickly. Now I can carry an item that is roughly the same size of my other go to lantern and never have to blow up my pad manually. The widget pump is one of those purchases that make me smile every time I set up camp, without the sacrifice of added weight or bulk to my pack for a comfort item.
Compact and works well so far, but we haven’t been outdoors at camp with it yet
Don’t count on this in cold weather
I have used this pump in 50F and worked flawlessly. Then I took it cold snow camping. The pump was fully charged. The temperature was 39F and it would not pump Megamat lite up. Fortunately, we had the schnozzel as a backup.
