Your profile's quite sketchy, not sure if adding a bra completes your packing list
Why don't you check 'packing list' in the 'Tools' section (see navigation bar on the left)?
Coincidently there is actually a store called Itchy Feet, and they have a few country- and activity-specific packing lists on their website - www.itchyfeet.com. If you want to be sure that you get the right bag, and one that fits your back properly - thereby maximising comfort and minimising the potential of injury, then it is best to go into a store where people know what they are talking about and get the bag fitted properly.
