Hi guys
I have started the scary task of looking around at backpacks to take away with me (how am I supposed to live out of one of those for two years??!!). I am going into London at the weekend to have a look around at some, and hopefully try as many different ones as possible to get more of an idea of what I want. I am also interested in travel packs etc. Do any of you have any recommendations of the best shops to look at in town? I have been searching the net aswell, but it is always best to ask the people who know from experience rather than from an advert or directory on the web.
Thanks for your help!
Love Mags xxx

I bought my last one from Nomads - they're pretty helpful and have a reasonable choice:

Kensington High Street (High Street Kensington tube) has a number of shops next to each other-ish, and there are also a chunk of shops around the southern side of Covent Garden, although they tend to be a bit more expensive

Thanks a lot guys! Think I have settled on Osprey Sojourn 80... I know, I know, I should probably go for something smaller, but I find travelling light hard!!
