80 litres or maybe larger.
Big issue - I would prefer an 80-85 litre pack with maybe side pockets, or packing a bit lighter (or smarter)
85 litres is a great long trip size, but for a month....
maybe 95-105 litres for the pack body.

For THE best deal in the world

great packs, excellent quality, very cheap.
