Need some advice on getting a travelpack...I'm going to England for three weeks in May. Any suggestions as to what size would be good? I want enough room so I can bring back some souvenirs, but I don't want to be horribly weighted down, either. I'm just worried that I'm gonna run out of room...I don't want to be kicking myself b/c I wasn't able to get something I really wanted. After all, never know when I'll be able to go back! Any suggestions would be appreciated!

oh, and any women out there...is it better to go with a pack that is specifically designed for women or doesn't it matter??

Hey Stefro, I think that a pack that fits women's frame would be better for your spine, but I used a regular one and was fine. If you're staying in one country, England for 3 weeks, you just need a regular size backpack, and if you want to bring souveniers back, then get the larger size up and leave the extra room for your goodies. You can also pack/fold another back in the pack, and use it later for your goodies, the only thing then is that you have to carry an extra bag around.
