I’m considering the Tomahawk 65/75 as it looks like a nice pack, but unfortunately, there are no retailers near me that carry it so I’m having to go by online only. Does anyone know anything about Caribee? Are they supposed to be good packs? Thanks for any help.

Never heard of them, although I see it’s primarily been an Aussie brand. For that money I would look into a brand you can get good recommendations for. Eagle Creek is great, but a little pricier. I like this REI pack: http://www.rei.com/p…
This is a great price on this Deuter pack:

I’ve used a Deuter pack as my main pack for most of my trips for the last six or seven years and also have one of their daypacks; they make good stuff.

Yeah I agree… that Deuter pack looks really nice. Thanks!

The Deuter pack looks nice. Does it suffice for a 10-12 day trip or is the 55L too big for that. I’ve been on the market for a pack for a long time now. The ones I can physically see appear to be to small or too big or oriented for mountain packing.

My Deuter is about that size, but is top loading and doesn’t have a daypack. For me it’s a good size. It’s bigger than what the ultra-light packers here would want, but not so large as to be burdensome even if stuffed to the gills.

I think I’ve narrowed it down between 2 Deuter packs. Since there are absolutely no dealers in my area (I’ve only found Jantzen or North Face at the local mega sports mart)… I’m hoping to make a more informed decision with help from you more experienced.

So, if anyone can give any feedback about which of these looks better I would love to hear comments.
