Ok my bad. Not many people with a 48" waist at 5'11" got there by weight lifting. Most people with those measurements would be classified as obese. I imagine if you lift that heavy your a mountain. It will be hard for you to find a pack outside of a custom. For example. Olympic weight lifter and strongman competitor Mark Henry had a 48" waist but a 64" chest. They simply don't mass produce things for people of this size because they are so rare. I'm sure you've encountered this trying to buy suits or other clothes.

It can be a real pain, but that's why I came here. I was wondering if there was anything like the etensia that might fit. My girlfriend has the barrage and I'm going to try it next time I see her. Supposedly the condor goes up to 50", too.

Though it doesn't have molle (which is a negative thing imo, molle just adds weight and trying to attach stuff to it always destabilises your pack if it has any weight), you might want to look into normal civvy backpacks with a replaceable waistbelt? Most companies who manufacture those, have bigger sized waistbelts so it can fit everyone well.
