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.

I was looking forward to my next walk. A last visit to the Walls of Jerusalem before all of winter’s snows melted. The forecast was promising, with more snow due to settle over the weekend. I had all my cold weather gear packed, snowshoes, Mont Spindrift sleeping bag, Mont Icicle down jacket, Mont Epoch tent etc. Then, a last minute check of the forecast the night before and it all fell in a heap. The snow forecast had turned into 2 days of steady rain..... Time for an alternative.
