Greetings, Journeyers. I am seriously considering the Frostline Hatchback II backpack kit. I have an Adventure 16 hiphugger external frame from 1976, which I really like, but the pack is an inefficient top loader. I have long planned to sew a new panel loading pack to fit the wonderfully comfortable frame, and I came upon the Frostline kit at their web site. My ultimate goal is a PCT through-hike, but that will be a few years off. What I want to know is, will the Hatchback II at 3168 cubic inches be enough? I will be carrying my sleeping bag, tent, ground cloth, and Thermarest outside the pack and other gear including stove inside. I'd sure like to hear the experiences of earlier through-hikers regarding pack size. Thanks.
