    Hi,

    I have a dilemma going on. I can't seem to choose between the Gregory Deva 60 or the Osprey Ariel 65 backpack.

    Does anyone know which one is a better buy?
    I'll be travelling for 7 weeks in Asia and then for 3 months in Central and South America.

    Do you think 60 litres or 65 litres is a good size for a backpack?

    thanx

    They are both top loading so I would say neither. Top loading packs are really annoying for travel. I have the mens version of the Ariel, the Aether, I would never use it for travel, great for trekking though.

    Consider the Osprey Waypoint 65 - it's a travel sack with clamshell opening rather than a top loader rucksack so nice and easy to get in and out of. It's also got a nice flap at the back that zips over the rucksack straps meaning there's less chance of anything being caught by conveyor belts etc in airports. It also has a 10 litre detachable day sack with full straps too.
