Topic - Backpack size?

neilwiltshire on 17 Dec 2012
Hi all,

I have a guided ascent booked in January with a company in NZ. Hopefully Mt Cook, but it depends on conditions, either way, it'll be a multi-day ascent of some peak in the Southern Alps.

On their kit list they say to bring a 55-65 litre backpack. I haven't ever done multi-day mountaineering before but even so that seems a little unnecessarily large to me, I've been looking at getting the Deuter Guide 45 instead.

I'd appreciate any advice on the matter that anyone can offer!

Thanks,

Neil.
