    Are you sure you are measuring right? That is insanely huge! Measure from the top of the hip bones to the big lump in your spine when you bend your head forward. Have someone do it for you.

    25 inch torso! LOL I don't think you measured right. Measure from the ball on the back of your neck to the bottom vertebrae where it meets your hips.

    Well I don't know any internal frame pack that would even fit you. I'd suggest an medium alice pack with a frame. How tall are you?

    (Most tall packs have a max torso of 23 inches)

    I have a Kelty Redcloud 5600 with a pack cover. PM me if you're interested. It should fit you. I'm 6' and it fits me well.
