I'm debating between the 2650 CUI and 3100 CUI Redwing packs. My torso length measures out to approximately 19". Do you have any input or recommendations regarding which I should choose?
Great question! It really depends on what you are more concerned about size or fit. They are both terrific packs, if size isn't the issue and you are only concerned about fit, if you have a torso length of roughly 19" I am pretty sure they will both fit you decently, but I would recommend the 3100 for two reasons. 1) You don't want a pack that will be to small or to big for you, the 2650 coming in at 16.5"-18.5", might be a little on the smaller side for you. Whereas the 3100 will cover you if you overestimated and your really 18" or underestimated and your 20"-21". 2) If size is the issue obviously the 3100 is bigger. The 2650 is perfect for a carry-on pack for travel, but the 3100 isn't that much bigger that it can't also easily be used for travel. Both are really versatile, and great packs, truthfully you really cant go wrong with either. Stay safe and have fun out there! Neal
