In the past, our team of engineers, made up of hiking enthusiasts, designed backpacks based on gender.
Now, it designs its backpacks according to your size, rather than your gender. Why? Because it asked itself the following question: is there a real difference between the male and female morphology?
On the skeleton, yes. But beyond that, there are different builds, different muscle masses and different types of fat, which are not specific to women or men. After conducting field tests, it emerged that the most important factor in finding a backpack, which will suit every hiker, is the height of the back.
More important than the gender-specific features (hips, chest, etc.) is your height. It is the stature that takes precedence. A person of short stature feels more comfortable with a pack that has a relatively small back, while a tall person will prefer a larger back.
Having made this observation, it seemed obvious to offer our mountain walking backpacks in two sizes: A size S for hikers under 1.70m tall. And a size L for those who are more than 1.70m tall. Here's a tip if you are between 1.65m and 1.75m tall: make sure you try on the backpack before buying it. Depending on the length of your legs or your back, you will need to choose between the two sizes.
