Good idea CC; think I'll sticky this one as it's such a frequently asked question!
Thanks, CC! Just found this new feature...Travel Gear.
Oh gosh this is good I googled, but can't find anyplace better to read up before buying my new backpack. Great initiative!

Hey guys, i do a lot of travels and finally have come across some really great gear. i bought one of their backpacks for a trekking trip i did to Africa.
Amazing reliability and comfort and the pack is still in good condition.
Have a look i think they are called vital gear, found them at www.vitalgear.com.au and went to backpacks.
any suggestions of other great gear please let me know, im always looking!

hey guys, was wondering if anyone could help me out.
im looking at backpacks that are 45L, 55L and 65L for a trip to europe this summer (and south america next year).
there are no travel gear type stores in my area and therefore am not sure the size of these actual backpacks.
could anyone post pictures of their packs, packed or not, so i can get a size estimate?
(have been looking at the "eagle creek truist" and the osprey "aether")
for * months I found 55L was dieal. Girls seems to like 90L and therefore stuff it wil everything as there is space, for things like hairdryers.
55 or 65 is good. The bigger it is, the heavier. Mine weighed better 8-25kg. Luckily i used to be a kayaker and my shoulders could take it.
Get an inbuilt frame one.
