hey, anybody, I do a moderate amount of mountain hikes with my wife, 5-12 miles avg. I am looking at packs that I can train with for more equipment to work up to longer hikes, for 2-3 day hikes. I back sweat a lot when hiking spring climates. I was considering the Mammut or Osprey for their claims of ventilation, but I really like the features and style of the Arc'teryx Miura 50. Will this be OK for adequate ventilation and comfort for trail type hiking. Any advice would be appreciated.
3000-3200cu in is the perfect size for a lightweight 2-3 day summer backpacking trip. Check out the Arc'teryx Axios 50 backpack as well. It is more geared for trekking, while the Miura is geared more for rock climbing. Both are excellent packs, but I believe what you are looking for is the Axios. It is highly breathable and over a pound lighter than the Miura.
