My wife has a torso length of about 14.5/15 inches and we are having difficulty finding a pack that fits her and is large enough to carry her gear for winter camping/climbing/expedition without needing a sled. We live in Alaska and as such need to use some fairly bulky gear to stay safe. The sled is OK for the expedition type stuff, but we really need a pack that can carry all out gear. The largest pack I could find for her was a Gregory Deva 80, but in the extra small size that fits her it is only 75 liters which is not quite enough considering our -30 bags etc. The Denali 100 is perfect and about the size we are looking for, but the torso length is too long.
Anyone have any suggestions for a pack that would fit her? Or is our only option getting a custom fitted pack? What do all the short mountaineers of the world do?
