eberlestock and everyone I have played with has been too long for my liking even when shortened up with the torso length adjustment. With weight on my eberlestock always sat too low and rubbed on me to the point of serious damage on long multi day pack outs.

Ha!!! Thanks guys for the info. It seems I am more confused now than before.
I am particularly interested in a pack with the capacity and capabilities of the M5. Any brand that will fit a big guy for long days chasing elk. I am really interested in narrowing the search a bit so when I make it out of tiny town Wyoming I will have the search down to three or four good ones.
Thanks again for any and all feedback my friend.
T.S. what is your torso length?
