I recently ordered this pack from SWD, and unfortunately even the large torso length is too short for me. Due to customizations, I am unable to return the pack.
Other than the pack not fitting, I love the way this turned out, and if I end up ordering another custom extra-long torso'd version, I wouldn't change a thing. It weighs in at 29oz, with the two hipbelts and shoulder strap pockets included. From what I have seen, if you order a full-suspension backpack from them with a large torso, the weight seems to creep up.
The small increase in side pocket height(1") holds smart water bottles so much more securely than my old SWD 50L with the standard pocket height.
