What size pack for thru-hike?
I'm planning on carrying alchohol stove, polyfill bag that compresses fairly small, small tarptent, enough clothes for a rather cold day, but very little duplicate clothing, small cookset, bear cannister, and as little miscellaneous items as I need.
I'm thinking about getting the Osprey Aether 75 (4500 cu. in.). I'd think with the bear cannister I'd need a pack with a frame. Is the pack big enough? too small? too big? Are Osprey packs too hot in the Summer as they hug your' back?
