If you’ve been looking at a new Mont large capacity pack or large daypack you may have noticed the different Harness Systems and sizes available.
All packs fitted with Moto-Active and Novo-Lite harness systems are available in up to three sizes to make sure you find a perfect fit: Women’s, Medium and Large. The Women’s size have more contoured and slightly narrower shoulder straps, the Medium and Large sizes are more universally styled to suit men and also women with larger bone structure.
To determine your harness size you will need to know your back length. Measuring your back length is easy with the help of a friend.
Once you know your harness size it is important to fit the pack correctly. A correctly fitted pack is essential for load carrying comfort.
Small & Women’s: 40 to 50cm
Medium: 45 to 55cm
Large: 50 to 60cm
Hip-Belt Minimum Circumference
Small & Women’s: 62cm
The best way to evaluate your harness fitting is to load the pack up with about 12kg and go for a wander. A correctly fitted pack will distribute a majority of the weight comfortably on your hips via the hip-belt, the shoulder straps are largely for stability.
Follow these instructions and you should have a correctly fitted Mont Backpack ready for adventure.

Earlier in July I went for an overnight Ice Climbing trip at Blue Lake in Kosciouszko National Park.
I setup camp with my Moondance 2FN tent in a nice sheltered spot that I often enjoy under Mt Twynam.
