Re: Which pack for an old Man
I've had Osprey, Mystery Ranch (Dana Design), Kifaru, and Granite Gear.
I've had one Kifaru pack, the EMR it was. I just couldn't get the fit on it down so I sold it.
You'll find that MR and Kifaru packs are made out of very high grade materials with heavy zippers (I like that part). Also the new G2 Kifaru packs are susposed to have a better fit/suspension than the old G1 packs.
I suggest you go with MR or Kifaru G2 packs and they will take care of you.
For me I have my own body type 6'0ft 270lbs 36" waist with large back/chest, and the Osprey and Granite Gear hug my body best at this point.
