3300 -3800 cubic inches is a great size for a two or three day weekend.

For just me...

I use a 2400 pack. I did just buy a hauler to take my kids out since they can't carry much in weight and the packs I've found for them are not comfortable. Next time I'm in Utah though, I'm checking out ULA to see if a pack can be made for my small boned daughter. Let her carry her own stuff for a while!

I'm using a 3,400 cu inches Deuter Futura Vario 40+10. Except for dayhikes, I've use this pack for all my trips in the past 2 years. I loved the suspension... especially the air-flow.

* grabs his calculater and does some math * About 3400 cu.in! My pack is 55 litres in normal units.

It then holds the usual plus food and fuel for a week.

Up until last week when I got my ULA Conduit (3,200 ci) (YEAH), my two packs were over 4,000 ci, one being my ULA P-2 which has always been my workhorse, and my GVP (Before Gossamer Gear) G4.

MS Auspex

I bought a Mountainsmith Auspex last September and just love it. It may have been one of the last one's left in the country, as they stopped making them in 2005. The only problem is, there has been a difference of opinion as to it's true displacment. It is a size medium and is between 3500-3800 cu. in. depending on whose webite you read.

pack size

3110 cu. in. Northface Terra 50.

Great Pack. I use it for weekends to 5 nights, since the only difference in loads are a couple extra mountain house pouches and oatmeal.
