Yea man i was gonna say.. i have a 60Litre.. it's like only 3/4 full..which worked out nice becuase when youw anna carry food you've got the space... but still i brought way to too much stuff man... like i think a person could seriously do with like
1 pair of quick dry pants that zip into shorts
1 pair of shorts (that can double as swimmers)
2 of those fancy high proformance te shirts that dry in like 20 minutes
2 pairs of quick dry undies
2 pairs of socks
1 pair of shoes...maybe a pair of thongs (flip flops of course)....
and i still managed to bring a sleepinbag, bivvy bag and air matress, water purifyer all that cool stuff
... personally i'll never bring cotton shirts again because they get dirty and gross quick, and they're harder to hand wash n' dry than those coolmax kinda shirts
Depends what your doin, really.. if you've gotta bring nice clothes becuase you wanna try n' pick up at the bar or maybe you just plan on being sweaty in the outback with a bunch a boguns (excuse my french hehe)... or maybe both.. i don't care about washin stuff in the sink every night so i broughtg less, hence a smaller pack .. the only real consideration i took into mind was people who had to sit next to me on the bus.. i didn't want to make them uncomfortable with my gross smell..(not that i'm a smelly b@st@rd but you know) ... but it doesn't matter because in my travels theres ALWAYS someone on the bus/plane/tram/shuttle who's stinker and dirtier than you hehe so.. depnds what you wanna get out of it.. but a 60l is huge and still have a whole pile of stuff i don't use. so..
