    Avoid packs that have cordage for straps as a main pack the cordage is not a comfy carry with a heavy pack.

    There is a lot to consider when selecting the right backpacking pack; whether it's your first bag or you're just adding to the quiver. You can choose the type of packs that most people will be drawn toward and will use for day-in and day-out backpacking. While a general pack could be used for travel, such as "backpacking" through Europe, South America or Southeast Asia, and most are versatile enough for some general mountaineering applications, these kind of packs aren't necessarily geared specifically for those activities. I recommend to check some different types of packs and choose a suitable one for your needs.

    I have a couple of packs by Osprey. They are nice packs. They both have lightweight frames. The newer one is an ultra-light pack. It's maybe 3# lighter than the other one. Holding down pack-weight is meaningful to me. Carrying a 40+ # pack is not my favorite thing to do. And when it comes to filling it up, ounces count! So it becomes necessary to get creative. Not only is there limited space, but the lighter the better. Osprey has a lifetime guarantee on their packs.

    Firstly I want to say I'm sorry because I can see that this is nearly a year old thread but I really wanted to ask OP cluckeyo or Tom Williams, where I can get the Osprey?! I mean, either it is me a bad scout or i just can't find it anywhere... i also search for anafranil but that's another story!
