I always LMAO every time I pass by someone's house who just got flocked. I think it's a hysterical fundraiser. You can buy anti-flocking insurance, etc.....just plain madness!

i have an aether 60 and the kestrel 38. i got the aether first and its very comfortable etc. then i wanted a more versatile pack and picked up the kestrel. i love all the pockets!! the aether doesn't have enough pockets imo, but the kestrel is great. all the clips are annoying but they let you tighten the pack up to be more stable and less bulky if you dont use all the space.

NH48: 48/48
NHW48: 9/48

Since you've said they are comfortable, i think price and feasibility are the next step. I don't think on overnights you can ever have too much space unless you ultralight.

One thing that sucks about larger packs it that I seem to pack everything that I don't need. With smaller packs, I am forced to think about the need for or the size of everything that I bring along. I am notorious for forgetting things, but not due to using a smaller pack. Its just what I do.

Ill still use my talon 22 for whacks and short hikes. I had a bigger osprey pack that was really digging into my rt shoulder, bad enough that I don't use it anymore and it rots in storage.
My other pack is a Marmot pack that i love and have had no problems with it.
