Is this is a decent pack?? Also a little more about me....

I am 6'0 215/lbs. I am going to Europe for the first time this October for 2 -1/2 weeks. I am flying into amsterdam and leaving from Rome. In 06 I plan on going back to go to Ireland and the UK.

Will this pack be enough for two and a half weeks? Is it a decent price or should I look to spend more? Is it comfortable loaded up? Any advice would be great!! Thanks in advance, look forward to joining the world-wide traveler circle!!

Personally I like north face they have a good product but keep in mind that this is a top loading pack and that if you have something at the bottom you have to remove everything above it. it should be comfortable and the price is decent Size all depends on what you take.. for a 2 week journey I would say it would be fine...
I'm sure that someone else can give you more info and others will post their opinion.

good luck and have fun.

North Face has decent packs, and this one looks to be a good size for your trip. There are a lot of others good ones out there. Have you compared this one to Sierra Designs, Dana Design, Kelty, Marmot, etc? I think its a matter of doing a little research and find which one works best for you.
