Comfort and Fit???
Thinking about a SB and wondered if there are any big folks out there who use a Light Hiker. I am 6'4" and 260 pounds. Can I get comfortable in a Light Hiker? I sure the standard would be better but I would prefer the shorter length and lighter weight.
^shane^ did a review here. At the time of the review he was 6' 220#
...for the link. Seems like he was just barely good with it. Let's see...another 40# and 4 more inches. Sounds pretty tight.
I'm 6'-1" and 200#. The Lighthiker is too short for me but I love my original Switchback.

Still 6' and about 200# now... I still like the LH better, but if I were any taller, I'd think the LH would be just too short.
Taking my LH to St. John, USVI for two weeks (not camping, just hanging when I'm tired of laying on the sand) on Sunday. Hope to share some pics:)
