View Full Version : Karrimor Alpinist size help
I am getting another pack as my Karrimor Alpinist 50litre from 15years ago (little use) is a bit short for me. The hip belt only has a bit on my hips.
I've been offerd a Karrimor Alpinist 60+15l from about 5 years ago. does anyone know if the etra size will mean it's long enough in the back
If I remember correctly the Karrimor Alpiniste Sacks, the purple ones, came in a variety of back lengths: Short, Medium and Long, or it might have been numbers. You'll need to check the label located by the haul loop between the shoulder straps to get the size.
Hope this helps
Andy mine is a 'regular' size alpiniste 45 + 10 from about 8 years ago. I'm 176cm tall (5'11") an it fits just right. Don't forget that the hip belts were designed to sit high and allow room for a laden climbing harness underneath. I have had several comments about the way it sits high but that is the reason so I wouldn't get the long back length unless you need it. It is similar to the sungpak rocket packs where you are supposed to fit webbing under the belt.
Thanks, I'm a bit shorter then you so I guess I'll keep the one I've got for some stuff and get a different pack for the next one
