What size of pack to you recommend? I'm looking at the Arc'teryx Bora 80 Backpack . Too big?? I'm going Sept 2010. Thanks!

To answer your question, I used a 70L pack and my wife used a 60L pack. the Bora is very nice and should make any load feel managable. The two times the pack size counts is first, climbing out of the fjord, and secondly, descending near gros morne mountain. The latter time your pack will almost be empty of food, but your strength a little taxed.

Downside If you can typically carry an 80L pack, go for it, but it can be done with smaller volumes.

Comment If you hike with a partner, you could both do it with 60L packs or smaller if you ultra lite it.

Thank you for your response. I got the Bora 65.
Cheers!
