I used this pack and travelled for 8 months in fiji/australia/new zealand/borneo/singapore/indonesia and it did the trick just fine.
I realized once i got out there that my pack was smaller than others. It wasn't until i got home that i realized how much smaller. ABOUT HALF! most people were traveling with at least 65L packs. I opted for the Women's Model because i'm a pretty small guy (5'6").
The pack is great, only a few things:
-top loader is no fun when searching for specific items at the bottom
-really no pockets. there are two water bottle sides...and two full length very small and thin pockets. But my pack was always so full that they were rather useless. Later i used them each for socks and underwear, and that worked well. The only real "compartment" is the top part.
I got this bag on closeout at the local climbing shop.

I got this bag on closeout at the local climbing shop. Great little bag. It is very small but perfect for overnight trips if you are like me and don't carry a lot of stuff with you. Perfect for 1-2 night minimalists or very good for a daypack at less than 2 lbs. I'm assuming it is good for a summit pack but won't confirm that until Jan 08.
