I know this is probably personal preference but I have my choices between different types of packs. I have looked through the boards for advice on which type and still am unsure. So if anyone can give me advice. I am goign to europe for 30 days in july. I was deciding between like an internal frame backpacking pack or a travel pack. Probably this one.

It should be big enough for a few outfits and a toothbrush and toothpaste and some goodies.

I was just wandering what everyone thinks. I'm really confused.

This pack is small, very small, and the waist strap is think and looks uncomfortable (click "suspension" on the link you posted). I think for 30 days you'll want something a bit more.
