It'll fit, but the Jumbo offers ZERO padded protection (even if you get the real thing.) At most, it will protect you from the elements, but as far as shock protection goes - it's only limited to as much as 600D Cordura (Pantac version, or 1000D for Maxpedition) can provide you. In other words, there is ZERO padding in the jumbo.
If you want REAL protection, get the Colossus... 1000D Cordura with foam padding lining the internals for shock protection.
Take it from me, I climbed a small mountain with my gear and came back with no gear problems. I'm planning to double the altitude next year with Mt. Killimanjaro using the same gear.
