Steady, steady. I made this mistake years ago. You need to make the rucksack fit without belt kit. There's lots of times you need to carry a rucksack without belt order. When you have got the belt order on it doesn't matter so much because there's plenty of adjustment to get it further up your back. I'm bang on 6' 0". I bought a Cyclops Roc in a size (rushes to spare room to check...)
Hmm, the label has rubbed through! B ugger! Anyway I recall it was a size 2. I actually needed a size 3 because otherwise it was too short from hips to shoulders and all the weight was carried on the shoulders. You could get away with this over (wait for it!) 58 pattern kidney pouches but really it was a pain in the arrse more often than not. Last year I bought a second hand Crusader in size 3. Bliss! I can carry anything in it all day, no bother. I think at your height a Size 3 will be correct too unless they've altered the sizing in recent years but measure carefully according to whatever size plans they show in the catalogue.
Hope this helps,

Just wondering if a size 2 might be ok thats mainly the reason why iv posted this to see if anyone my height has used this and what sizes suit them ?

While they claim it's made of milspec IRR material they're lying like a bastard crossbreed of Kira C*chrane and Pi*rs Morg*n.
