re: Ohm Frame
Mark, the Ohm does have a frame, and it's rather robust, even for being so light. It's a pretty ingenious system that has worked for a lot of people. Given that, Sean I think you'll b...

Re: Re: Re: My pack fit
Sorry--I wasn't clear enough. By "up" I meant in torso length, not up in the belt adjustment. In other words, I think you might do well with an extra 1.5" or so of torso length...

Re: I am BPL my hiking buddy is BPH
