Oh my! Look at what I've started! In my attempt at brevity, I've stepped in the poo pile.

Trekker,

My profound appoligies! I'll bet I have you mixed up the TrailTreker.

I'll be more careful in the future. :nod:

LOL!

Yes Trailtrekker, when I step in the pile with one foot, the other often follows. :lol:

I hope our playful pratter hasn't chased off the original poster.

Bucky,

If your still with us I'll add a few more comments. I did what was NOT recommended. I read up everything I could find on pack fitting, got myself measured, then bought an expensive quality (name brand) pack that was WAY to big from a cheaper online vendor. The pack did work for me, but as I think was said above, I managed to fill it up. I paid a HEAVY price for that, literally and figurativly speaking. The other posters in this thread (myself NOT included) have been doing this for many years. Give it some thought.

Again, Best Wishes!

Jerry
