Can anyone recommend a decent backpack for SEA ? am going for about 3 or 4 months.I dont want anything to big as i dont plan on filling it with to much just clothes an what i need basically (no junk)
I just want somthing robust that will prob fit under my seat whilst i am traveling(reducing the risk of it getting robbed)i dont want to pay to much for one.As long as it does`nt break my back and it stays in one piece I`ll be happy .

Well its a bit difficult without an actual budget. Also these are US packs so not sure what you can get in the UK, but you can't go wrong with any of these.

If you want something smaller. http://www.campmor.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=39166785&memberId=12500226

Gregory makes solid packs so anything from them.

this should be a good size pack for you and cheap. Unfortunately I do no know anything about the company to give you an idea of quality. I am an avid hiker and backpacker and if nothing else you can't go wrong getting any pack from kelty, gregory, Dana designs (if you have the money, expensive but worth every penny), lowe alpine, Osprey or black diamond. I would check sierratradingpost.com and see if they ship international because they have some sick deals. Hope this helps. Brent
