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.

I measure 180 cm (5'11''), used a size L in the 40L for the past year while hiking, skiing, climbing, biking. Overall I really like it and would recommend this backpack to a friend. Things I like... The straps and features on the pack are simple yet modular so it's easy to adjust the setup for what you want or don't want on any given adventure. All the webbing, hooks, etc. can easily be moved or removed. The pack handles loads really well and feels small yet stable on my back. Something I don't always experience as I have a small torso. Just under a year in and this pack is just dirty. No serious signs of wear and tear from rocks, ski edges, etc. Things I would change... Fastener inconsistencies: I like the theory of aluminum hooks for the compression straps as they are more durable than plastic buckles, though they tend to come undone if the backpack doesn't have much in it. And if one is going to abandon plastic buckles, it would be cool to do the same for the waist buckle given that is the most abused fastener point and needs to be the most durable. The sternum strap sits on a plastic track and is want to get pulled off if gets caught on anything when putting the pack on or taking it off. This could be easily solved had it been attached to the shoulder straps with webbing. I'm biased towards a back or panel access system. While the side zip is nice, a full panel access would be much preferred. Especially on a big deep backpack like this one.
