Yo, the black pack is listed as having a torso fit of 17-18" (oddly enough, the same as the purple pack). The smallest the hip belt gets is about 29.5" (so, 75cm). Putting the buckles all the way at the end of the straps, it is about 57" (145cm).
I can't comment on how accurate that torso fit is though, I simply do not know enough about how packs are measured and supposed to fit. I can say that the part of the back that goes against the spine and is made of harder material is 21" long.
Seems like the purple and black packs are about the same fit.
I'm happy enough with mine and am around 5'10" and skinny as a rail.
Hope that helps!
