  • Tip
    Measuring is more accurate if you are wearing socks. For best results, wear the socks that you would wear with the shoes.
    Always measure both feet and use the results from the bigger foot. If you are in-between two sizes, we advise you to order the larger one.

Backpacks

When selecting your backpack size, there are two important criteria to consider: capacity and back length. On all Jack Wolfskin backpack models, the greater the back length, the larger the capacity of the main chamber. We give the back length for backpacks that are primarily used for treks of one or several days.

You can find the back length next to the product description on the product page of each backpack. Backpacks with “WOMEN” in the name indicate that the suspension system is designed for women, as opposed to our unisex models.

Back length* 38-42 cm 42-46 cm 46-50 cm 50-54 cm 54-58 cm 58-62 cm
Suspension system unisex     S M L XL
Suspension system “WOMEN” XS S M L    

* If your measurement is at the upper limit of a size category, we recommend that you opt for the larger size. A backpack will only be comfortable if it has been properly fitted!

To calculate your own back length, measure from the shoulder to the upper edge of the pelvic bone.
