spent $54 at amazon for 3500 cubic inch bag, holding three shorts, one jean, five shirts, one pair of shoes, five underwears, 12 pairs of socks, one towel, two jackets, two books, all my toilettries, poncho, and a few other things.  Seems like a good size, havent weighed it but its not that much.  Just posting to get some responses and to show people what you can bring in a bag that size.

sorry no daypack.  For the most part its just a simple pack.  There is an internal comparment that you can zip or unzip to segment the pack, good for keeping the smelly or wet cloths from the clean.  Also has a raincover, and is hydration compatable.

um, there are lots of loops of fabric to tie or clip a bag too on the back or side.  I feel safer having my daybag infront of me anyways. So that if anyone goes through my bag they will just find dirty socks.
