Shoulder Harness Sizing - appropriate shoulder harness fitment ensures pack stability, proper gun mount, and reduced fatigue after a long day in the field. To determine your torso sizing, please take the following measurements.
Find the top of your hip bone (i.e. iliac crest) - stand straight, feel your lower back right at/below the typical waistline for your "hip bones".
Touch your chin to your chest and feel the back of your lower neck for a large protruding bone, this is your C7 vertebrae.
Measure the distance with a soft/fabric tape measure from your hip bone to your C7 vertebrae.
We recommend 20" and under selecting the Regular size and 21"+ going with the Tall size
