hi all
i am looking at different backpacks for my rtw trip next year. I have a Regatta one at home but i think it is too big. Can anyone recommend a good woman's one (around 40 - 45 litres)? i would prefer if it had the daypack / rain sheet inc. How much is a reasonable amount to spend on a good one. I've seen some great looking ones but maybe they are a bit costly. What features should it defo have?
any help much appreciated. :) cheers!

Hi
If you trawl through the different forums and threads their is and has been 100s of posts ref backpacks and 100s of answers,have a look,theirs a good one on RTW forum today.
I just have a shoulder bag with very little in it as places I go everything is cheap anyway so saves me carrying !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and if I like something I want to bring home I post it home.
Take the one you have and when you are on the road in India,Asia,Central/South America?????? just assess the load and buy a really good one very cheaply out their,maybe even part-exchange!!!!!
Sorry I cant be of more help,have a great time on your travels.
