Depends on what you want to use it for. I bought a 85 l Fjällräven Kajka pack for extended trekking trips in polar regions. The rucksack is also available as 75l and 100l versions. The carrying system is the best I have ever used, especially the hip belt is great in transferring heavy loads to the hips. But of course it is not ideal for technical climbing.

+1 for Aiguille

In reply to blyth001: Berghaus have always done their expedition pack with a cyclops back system. They've always been impressively light and simple for a huge pack and having used a Cyclops II Alp for a many years I still think that back system was perfect for heavy loads whilst still being simple, strong and light. Well worth a look.

Not used it personally, but I seem to recall the Mountain Hardwear South Col 70 being brought up previously.
