What is the size needed for a week hike? Not sure what size pack to get. Is there an average size or should I say minimum and maximum size for an average female?

A week long hike will usually require around 4500 cubic inches (about 75 liters). Some people can use 60 liter packs, other people can use even less. It just depends on how many comforts you want to bring along. But with a bigger pack you are going to be more tempted to carry things you don't need. This pack would be an awesome pack for week long trips.
