I'm curious if anyone here can comment on Grivel packs and their fit, durability, etc. I am considering the Grivel Lavaredo 35, but will have to order online as no one seems to carry these in store.
The reason I'm asking about fit is that I have a longer-than-average torso, thus making bag selection a difficult task. If you could compare fit to other common bags (I own Gregory Advent Pro and Gregory Z40), that would be great.
I have a Grivel Haute Route (30 L) It's a fairly average torso length I would reckon. Similar to an REI backpack that I have that is a 'medium' The hip band is a little higher than on my BD Creek 50 L. I'm a tall guy, but all my length is in my legs, so it works for me. Seems like a durable bag, but to be honest I haven't used it much so can't say long-term. Overall the design is very well thought out with useful features.
