Hey all, So I haven't done much camping before college, but since I started living on my own, I've been going on proper camping trips more and more. When I graduate, I'm looking into moving to Tennessee where I know I'll be hiking and camping even more, since I'm a bit limited in good locations in South Florida. But I've been going on more and more trips where I'm setting up camp further and further from my car and would like to really scale down the stuff I bring with me and be able to fit it all in a backpack. That said, I don't know how big I should go for this first pack. Most of my trips have 2-3 days but I know with a bigger bag, I'll be able to have more stuff with me that's easier and comfortable to carry, so I can go longer. I'd like to stick with some better brands, while remaining under or around $200, so brands like Kelty, Osprey, The North Face, and the like would be preferred. Do you guys think I should be starting small and looking at packs in the 35-40L range, or maybe 50-60L or just go as big as I can carry? Needs to be able to hold sleeping bag, tent, jacket, food, water, and first aid kit, at the very least. Would love to get some general thoughts on the matter. Thanks!
