Macpac Cascade 75FL Size 3

Hi. I have a brand new Macpac Cascade 75 FL (Size 3) for sale.

Why you ask? Well, on the back of the dodgy retailer thread, I have been sold (or did I willingly buy?) the wrong size pack - so much for "professional fitting". Of course I stuffed around thinking that I could make a larger size work for a couple of months and now it's probably too late to return it.

Pack is blue, brand new (with tags), no marks - been worn for testing, but not used in anger.

Paid $360 a couple of months ago, would like to get $220 but am flexible.

I live in Portland so unless you're local, I would have to post it. Could possibly deliver to the Gramps or Arapiles as well in conjunction with an easy climbing day if you like!

Have a great day!

Size 3 is for midgets.

Hi Sol, I'm 165 and the harness is at it's smallest, so I guess that it would fit anyone from 165 up.

I know I'm short, but if size 3 is a midget I must be microscopic (or you must be a giant :) - I knew there was a reason I was having trouble on those reachy climbs like Diapason.....

cheers

I have a size 3 Torre, and I'm 180cm (although fairly light build, maybe 75-80kg). Refering to your link Egosan, I'm near the top of the size 3 range, so could have gone for 3 or 4, but I found the 3 a little more comfortable. Good luck selling it. It sounds a fair price to me for a good pack.

Its not all fun and games being this tall....

You should see the dents in my skull. There is a special place in hell for all the short
engineers and architects out there.

Good luck selling it.

Same here. I'm, 183cm and I have the size 3 Torre (80litre) and love it. Comfortable as hell, even with 30kg loads. That is a great price for the Cascade.
