alright, time is ticking down for our month in europe. spent the day looking for packs, but I'm kind of confused on what size to get. I'm a pretty big guy so I can handle a large pack, but I"m just wondering what size would be suitable for a month of travel. I'm kinding of the thinking that it's better to have room for things we pick up, but on the other hand if I have the space will I pack more. the pack I'm considering is 80L (sorry, don't have a link to it).

I think 80L might be a bit big, you would be fine with 60-70

you could try getting one with an expansion gussest in it.
that way u leave home with it closed, but if u pick up some really coool stuff u have an extra 10L or so space.
