For Acocgaua need two packs, a big on about 100L and a small, light one for the summit day. There are not very many sacks on the market in size 100L, PriceSpy says 34 pc over 90L, but then many of these old models that can be difficult to obtain. Three of us have chosen to buy new Arc’teryx backpacks for the trip when they have received very good reviews.
Regarding summit packs, three of the team chose Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 2010, mostly due to Addnature has had campaign on it and sold it for only 499 SEK.
