First big purchase, Women's REI Grand Tour Travel Pack.

After much research, price comparison and deciding I need a "chick" bag, I finally found out what I was looking for with Women's REI Grand Tour Travel Pack.  
Here the down and dirty of my new pack:

  • Detachable day pack with hydration pocket and hose port (now I can sell my old packs on craigslist, and have more money for my trip)

  • 66.5 liter capacity

  • Fairly light at 4 lbs. 8 oz. - but we will see after I pack

  • Adjustable suspension to customize fit

  • Extra compression straps above shoulders help secure your load

  • Lots of compartments both inside and outside (6 pockets + 2 main compartments)

  • Lash points to attach gear and compression straps to snug loads

  • Bottom area can be sectioned off from the rest and can hold a shoes and dirty clothes - or someday a sleeping bag

  • All straps can be zipped up for storage on planes, buses and cars (see pic). 

  • Best part it was only $130 (on sale from $189) and in mallard a fun green color. 

    Now it's time to try it out and see if I like it as much when it's on my back full of all my stuff :)   Or should I say half of what I plan on bringing if I follow everyone else's advice.
