I offered this pack for $50 (The offer is still standing). It is brand new, only been used once. My only concern is it big enough for 2 weeks in europe?

That should be easily doable for 2 weeks in Europe. I did 2 weeks in an Eagle Creek Continential (google it) and I think it was smaller than this one.

that is an awesome looking pack, if you pack light then it will do just fine, if you look in the packing list sticky on this forum then you will find good suggestions of what we mean by packing light.

some of the members on this site get by with smaller packs than that. i took a pack about that size for a month and a half and i had a computer and a camera soooo it depends on what you take

It looks like a nice enough pack and the size should be fine.
