How long were you guys planning on going for? I'm going for several months, and was thinking of something larger. Of course, if you were going in august, then you probably wouldn't need as much stuff as me, as I'm going in november/december.

You cant got wrong with an Eagle Creek. The piggy back day pack is in my opinion the coolest feaure for a packer. It allows you extra storage, plus you can ditch your bag at the hostel for day trips. I got an Eagle Creek for my Euro trip last summer and I Loved It! I packed a bit much, but mine was a bit bigger than yours, so maybe that will save you the agony of a tired back. You will love all the cool features that Eagle Creek throws in there, I didnt even find some of the secret compartments until half way through my trip, they really think of everything. Its too late for you, but for everyone else out there, if youre considdering a pack, other than getting one too big or too small, you will simply not be dissapointed with an Eagle Creek. Take it easy everyone, Kyle.
