I'm a female traveler looking for an upgrade from my North Face Terra 40. I've had the North Face for about 6 years and it has been great for flashpacking trips lasting 1-2 weeks, but I think I need a better pack for my 5week trip through Vietnam and Cambodia. (I know 55L may be overkill, but I'm planning to bring it half full so there's room for all the stuff I'm bound to collect)
I've been looking at packs online and really like the Deuter Quantum 55L + 10L daypack. They don't offer it in a store near me, so I am thinking of ordering it online to try it on. Wondering if anyone has anything thoughts on this pack. Also, it's technically a men's pack, so would that be an issue for me? (I'm strong but relatively petite and don't want to be weighed down by a monster pack!)
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
