Hi all

goin RTW in Jan 06, cant wait!!

Just seems daunting choosing the right backpack!

My favourite so far is the berghaus silhouette

Can any one advise me different or will this do fine?

Any other tips on backpacks will be much appreciated

I travelled 6 months with a NOMAD backpack of 55 liters....was fine to my and not expensive. There are very expensive backpacks on the market nowadays like Karrimor, but they are not better then the cheaper packs (maybe if you travel for 80 years everyday and you don't want to buy a new one)

I have a Karrimor at the moment, had it about 10 years. I'm going round the world and want something a bit more advanced.

I'm going to go for the Karrimor Global, looks the nuts.

The thing the Global has compared to my one is, it's not top loading which means you don't have to take out all of your stuff every time you want to get something out from the bottom of your bag, it has a detachable daysack, and the stowaway back system.
