Osprey Kestrel 38 Backpack 5 5 1 1
Great for travelling I used this pack for a three week backpacking trip in Europe and it worked great. The pack was very light weight and comfortable, being a shorter and smaller person. There were plenty of little pockets for me to put stuff in and the separate compartment on the bottom really came in handy. I would definitely recommend this pack if your looking for something light.

A pack that is in the 45-65 liter range would be good for your purposes. This is just a rough guideline and depends a lot on your equipment and packing habits. For more detailed information feel free to call our customer service number.
