Topic - Expedition Pack!

gi - on 30 Mar 2013
Hello there great and good of UKC!

I having some what of a dilemma..

I am heading over to the USA in about a month and need to get an exped pack for work.

The criteria I have for the perfect pack are:

Must be strippable (removable lid, hip belt, frame sheet etc)
Able to handle heavy loads, 35+KG
Be able compress down to be used for day use/ cragging
Preferably weigh under 2 -2.5 KG
If possible waterproof fabric.
Wand/water bottle pockets
Be 70 litres or more

...Though I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist!

So far the shortlist includes:

POD Xpod
Mountain hardwear South Col
Lowe Alpine 75:95 Expedition
Crux AK70

.. Can anyone reccomend any others or have any experince with those mentioned good or bad?

I'll be using it for 15 day or more expeditions guiding in Oregon so I'll be carrying pretty heavy loads all day but also want to be able to compress it down to use it as a climbing pack on days off .
Thanks in advance for any help and advice!
