This infographic measurement instructions and basic information on choosing the right backpack. See my specific recommendations for backpacks here
The most important thing about a choosing the right backpack is getting a proper fit.
To carry correctly and comfortably a pack must fit both torso length and hip size. Torso length is measured along the spine between the base of the neck and the top of the hips and hip size is measured around the top of the hips, (don’t confuse this with waist size).
