i have about 5 days til i leave so i need to order my pack right now, but im torn between a few.

i found one that is ENORMOUS but a little too well priced for me to trust. here are a few links, please check them out and let me know which would be best.

im going to be backpacking for a very long time, 6months+ so i definately would need the room.

The Mountainsmith looks great except that its huge! 6000cu is a lot of space....but it looks like it is the best of the three for over all features

I just got this http://www.eaglecreek.com/10039.html

At a local retailer, their site has a store locator. A little expensive ($200, but it has a lifetime guarantee) but it is like a suitcase. It has a lot of space, a security wire, and a separate area for dirty clothes.

I was looking at the top down backpacks (wilderness style) and the lady did not recommend it.

Just stuff to consider.
