YAY I got my backpack I'm so happy with it, I love it, it's sooo comfortable and it has a detachable day back right at the front, the best part is that I got it only for $119 CAN. After reading all your threads I was worrying that I'd have to spend well over $250 for it! Here's the link, go ahead and let me know if I made a good decision in getting this back. The girl at the store told me that's the most popular one. Anyway Weee I'm so hahhy

Looks good to me!

I am sure KCL, our resident pack guy, will chime in soon.

60 liters is plenty of space to pack and the detachable day back is a great add-on.

Good choice...I do believe that was the pack I took w/ me to Europe....although at the end of my 2 month stay, the back supporting bar ripped a hole in the top & kept trying to come out...

I have a 60L pack as well and I agree that 60 is plenty of space as long as you have a day pack.. which is necessary anyways!!

Looks good - you should have enough space. Only things is it looks a bit luggagy (yea, made up word) and might not be as comfortable if you have to wear it for long periods. Over all though I think it will seve you well.
