I think you’re making the right choice by going with 40-45L for week ending! Osprey and Gregory make great packs. Don’t know if you’re in a place where you can try them on - would go with whatever fits best, and those companies do make different fitting packs compared to each other.

Plenty of REIs around to try on a variety of both which is great! Though not sure I'll buy there now...

A line producer on the awful show had an insight: you can always buy cheaper than REI, but anything you buy there will never let you down.

I do have a pair of boots there that gave me scars on my calves... but they were hella waterproof. And my bike lift from there sucks but ALL bike lifts suck. Pretty sure they have both brands.
