My pack of choice is theĀ Gossamer Mariposa 60L which has survived 3000+ miles. I like it for a few reasons: 1) able to put bearcan inside or on top with straps, 2) flexible outer pocket – I shove a lot in there, and 3) side pocket I can reach without taking pack off – stores two 1L bottles. It is not waterproof but have not needed because it only rained for a few hours in the 160+ days hiking the PCT. Weight is not an issue until you get above mid 30s, which I only did coming out of KMS.
