How do I choose a pack size?

Factors influencing pack selection include the season in which the pack will be used, the amount of gear a person typically brings (kitchen sink vs. light & fast), the length of the trip, and the environment in which the trip will take place (desert vs. high alpine). Winter trips will require about 1000-2000 cubic inches more than a trip of the same duration taken in summer time. Many of the top-loading internal frame packs have a spindrift collar which allows the top of the pack to be extended for this very purpose.

To help choose a pack size refer to the graph below to find the recommended pack volume (cubic inches) for a given trip length.
