TRAVEL PACK HELP

Posted by tandseb on 15/2/2012 at 17:05

Hey guys,

I am looking at the REI Grand Tour 80 Travel Pack - Women's for our 1 year SE Asia- Australia trip in November, but I cant find this in the UK!!

http://www.rei.com/product/809158/rei-grand-tour-80-travel-pack-womens


If I am going to pay postage from US I want to be sure its the right purchase. Has anyone got any comments about this pack?

Does anyone got any suggestions of a similar pack in the UK?

I really like the front zipper style as its seems to be easy access and ( as I am a bit obsessive) it looks easier to organise!
I'm looking for one with an attached day pack and like this one room for a note book and pockets with organised compartments for paperwork, camera etc

Can anyone help? thanks

The following companies have dealers in the UK. Just check to see which packs are side-loading as top-loading packs are inconvenient for travel.

I am not familiar with Karrimor but they might have something.

I suggest you go to a local store and try out a few packs because getting the right fit is important.
