So I've been looking at packs to use for hike camping and hunting. I am having issues on deciding on what size to get since I'm just getting started in hike camping. I plan on any where from day hikes to multi-week hikes/hunts.
I am between a 4800 cubic inch or a 6800 cubic inch external frame pack from Barney's in Anchorage. The 4800 has less outter pockets and doesn't have a main compartment divider like the 6800. I want enough room for my gear of course but I don't want to over kill it and add weight and bulk if not needed. Any input helps.
