cyberbillwrote a question about Osprey Packs Kestrel 68 Backpack - 4000-4200cu in on July 12, 2012
Trying to decide what size pack to upgrade to. Have already decided on the Kestrel based on all the reviews I've read, here and elsewhere. Currently have a very basic daypack (~30L) which is really at capacity and very uncomfortable to wear. I would prefer not to have to get a pack for each type of trip. Is there any reason why I shouldn't get this 68 and just cinch it down when I have a smaller load for a summer day hike? I'm not an ultralighter by any means, but I try not to pack the double basin kitchen sink either. I would like to have a single pack that's good for 1 day to many day, solo or group. Thank you for your thoughts!
