the big Molle pack DOES have torso length adjustment

my error. I"d never have noticed it on my own, but a video about another pack, the Lowe's, shows that theres a HUGE velcro back panel, which is telesccoped down into another sleeve, matching velcro, and getting it to release is REALLY hard on the back of your hand/wrist. The hook part of the velcro rubs there. That's a design flaw, since it could easily be the soft part of the velcro with the hook part on the other side. Now the pack sits properly on my hips and isn't pinching the hell out of my love handles. :-) I expect that to be a HUGE help. sorted thru the 3 gallon bucket of wheel weights and removed the ones that are adhesive (soft lead, can't cast anything but muzzleloader balls out of it, as well as the weights made out of zinc, aluminum and iron/steel. The good stuff went to my buddy and the scrap will be the weights in my pack.

My pack, has a built in panel that provides some support, but it is designed to be removed so you can slip it between the Velcro sides. This makes it easier to adjust the torso length.

The right length is critical to proper fit

Okay seriously, is this the older CFP-90 Woodland Camo or the newer USMC Digital Woodland one?

In all fairness, I'm the one that suggested it was a CFP-90. Boati never said what it actually was, other than it was a big molle pack...

I know, in just curious as I've never messed with either .

I do know the CFP-90 under went a few changes in the adjustment system. At least two that I've seen pictures of.

Just trying to get an image of what he's dealing with about fitting and balance.

It's hard to say, but it sounds like one of the following issues to me:
1 - the torso is too short and needs to be lengthened
2 - he has the Hip belt way too high up. If it is a wide belt, then it should be over his hips so that the part with the belt is sitting on his hip and the pads are over his hips.
3- he has the load lifters and shoulder straps set wrong.

he needs to address 1 & 2, then worry about #3.
