I overall like the idea of this backpack, but I think new designs should incorporate an adjustable length of the waist belt versus sternum strap and shoulder pack. I know that would probably add a bit of weight. But this would make it more versatile. I purchased this pack as a larger pack that you could go day hiking with or frankly pack items in but still packing your suitcase when you go on vacation. 6 foot six person here with long everything so the torso length for this path needs to be probably normal sized or a bit smaller for it to fit correctly.
