backpack for short guys

I keep thinking about getting a new pack.  I currently have an old Camp Trails frame pack that hauls weight pretty well.  Also a Crooked Horn day pack.  I'm only 5'8" and don't want to just order a pack that is one size fits all.  There really isn't anyplace around here to try on any of the more expensive packs.  Was considering the Horn Hunter full curl, but there is no adjustment for torso length.  The Mystery Ranch Crewcab looks very nice also.


Thanks for any input

Cabelas Bow & Rifle Pack

It isn't the fanciest pack on the market, but I have been enjoying using my Cabelas Bow & Rifle Pack for the last 3-4 years.  I am 5'7", and I feel like I have been able to adjust everything on it for a comfortable fit and good weight disbursement.  I also have a cheap frame pack that I got on-sale from Gander.  I don't use that much, but I also have been able to adjust it well enough to make me happy.
