I'M TRAVELING TO EUROPE AFRICA THIS SUMMER,...
I'M TRAVELING TO EUROPE AFRICA THIS SUMMER, 9 WEEKS. TRYING TO DECIDE BETWEEN THE NORTH FACE BACKTRACK 70 OR THE EAGLE CREEK GRAND VOYAGE 90L. EAGLE CREEK HAS MORE SPACE, NORTH FACE HAS SOME NICE FEATURES. ANY SUGGESTIONS.
While I don't have any experience with either packs, if I were in your shoes I'd probably go with the Eagle Creek Grand Voyage 90L only because it will hold more, it's lighter, and it is easier on your wallet. Plus many of the attributes are the same. Both get good reviews... you'll probably be happy with whatever decision you make.
