How to Measure Your Back

Montane backpacks are fitted on back length. This is measured from your C7 vertebrae (the boney protrusions when tipping your head forwards) to the centre of the hip bone (where you 'put your hands on your hips'). It is useful to have a friend help with this measurement.

Running Packs and Vests

Due to the close fitting nature of these packs and vests, Montane use chest measurements to determine the correct size.
