/ PodSac Back Sizes
Just enquiring about PodSac Back Sizes. A lot of people I have spoke to say that its really important to adhere to the rough guidelines given for PodSacs for back lengths. I'm 6'1 so going by PodSac guidelines I should get a Size 3.
I have located a Size 2 for very little. Am I wise to go for it, or could I expect back problems when its fully loaded?
Also consider if you want to climb with the sac. I had a Black Ice size 2. It was about right for me at 5' 10", but the length of the sac back meant I couldn't look up with a climbing helmet on - they interfered with each other and ice climbing was more difficult.
Now have a size 1 and it's much better, for me. Smaller volume also suits my needs better!
Cheers, I'm looking for a PodSac Black Ice - one for climbing with, but also one that can be used for a weekend of walking and wild camping aswell. Good to hear that the sizings are not that strict..
I believe you are selling a PodSac Black Ice Size 2? Is it still available? Possibly pictures?
I am 6'2" and use a pod size 2
