So I've been looking at packs to use for hunting and hike camping. I am having issues on deciding on what size to get since I'm just getting started. I plan on any where from day hikes to multi-week hikes/hunts.
I am between a 4800 cubic inch "moose" external frame pack or a 6800 cubic inch "hunter" 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 and the pack material is different. 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.
