I'm heading to Ghana in February for the Peace Corps. I'll be gone 27 months and am looking into getting a pack for my stuff instead of a suitcase. This seems more practical. I want one that can hold a lot but its not super bulky or too heavy...would this pack be good for that or can anyone recommend one that might better suit my needs?
If you are going to be carrying it on your back for a long period of time this would be ok. I have the argon 85, great packs for carrying. But if you are going to be traveling in vehicles,moving a lot you won't want all the straps that come with these packs. Check out the Osprey Waypoint. Sounds to me it would be perfect for your trip.
Thanks! I'll check that bag out! I won't be doing too much backpacking/hiking trip...It would be mostly for storage to and from Ghana and then I would use it for any short trips I take while I'm there...I plan on taking a smaller suitcase with wheels in addition to a pack but I think a backpack is still a good idea for my situation. Thanks again!
