Back pack question...North face skareb or an Osprey

Travel Forums Travel Gear Back pack question...North face skareb or an Osprey

Do to a major lack of backpacks at the stores by me i ordered some online...I got the Skareb 65 by Northface. It seems like it is more for trekking and camping then travelling. I will be travelling around India for 5 weeks, leaving this sunday. It is kind of thin but says its puncture proof. It is super light and comfortable, but would the Ospry be a better choice for lugging around India on long train rides and buses...
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks
Mike

Both are great companies and 5 weeks is not 5 months. I would go with whatever pack was cheaper.
