Glad to see somebody's done a thru-hike with my pack, Mike! I have
a Kelty Tioga (large size), and up until recently it seemed HUGE to
me -- never had trouble taking everything I needed on shorter trips,
and comfortably, at that. But recently I had been wondering if a pack
around 5,000 ci was large enough for a thru-hike. Since you made it
with one, I guess I can!
As far as internals vs. externals, to each his or her own. I just
like being able to easily lash stuff to the outside of my pack. Plus
I get hot easily in the summer, so the air circulation on my back is
nice. (PLUS I got my Kelty for $70 on clearance at a sporting goods
store! That's a REAL plus! ;-))
Thanks for your time,
