I'm trying to decide between the Burton S Series 162 and the 168.

I weigh 160-165 lbs and am 6 ft tall.

I'll be doing 2 - 4 day trips in the eastern sierras from Feb to May with a 40 - 55 lbs pack.

According to Burton's site, the 162 is designed for a weight range of 140-190 and the 168 is designed for a weight range of 160 to 190.

Which board is right for me? Do I need to include the pack weight when I look at Burton's recommended weight range?

Your help is very much appreciated.

Dan
