View Full Version : What's your size
What size is your pack and what do you use it for
Like cubic in or liters
and thru hike,day hike, slack pack
My Mountainsmith Ghost is 3100 cubic inches. I haven't done a thru hike yet, but pack size is pretty much irrelevant. There are people who thru-hike with 2500 cu in frameless "daypacks" and people that go on dayhikes with 5500 cu in keltys. It really doesn't matter. It's what works for you that counts.
I carried my 3800cu in granite gear pack for a month on the AT last year, and have used it for an 8 day hike in the Grand Canyon. We carried tarps instead of tents so otherwise there may have been a space issue.
I carry a 5400 cubic inch pack for uninterrupted winter trips. It'll haul enough to stay out for 18 to 21 days(with the tent and the thermy strapped to the outside).
I have a Dana Design Bomb Pack and it is about 3200ci and it will do just about anything. I also have a REI UL 45 that I run with, but I havn't taken it into the backcountry yet.
Oops, sorry, wrong thread. I'm not in the Class of 2007. :datz
