Hi, this is my first post here. I'm leaving for my first trip in two weeks and I still need a backpack. I've been trying to find a good travel pack, but I don't know what size I need! Can anybody help? A lot of online stores only have the size in Cubic inches, how many do I need?

Thanks,
Mal

sorry, I just found another post that's about the same as this one at the bottom of this page... oops! So 60-65 litres is good? Does anyone know what that is in cubic inches? (stupid measurements!!)

Hmmmm, I went from a 40L pack to and 80L pack and I had a bit to much room...so your idea of a 60-5L pack sounds to be a good idea!

we just picked our packs today and I went with a 60l pack without daypack and my fiance went with a 50l + daypack (I guess it's either 5 or 10l). I tried out some 70s and 80s but they just seemed way too big.
