Travel gear (less is more!)
During a 5-week trip to Europe a few years ago (age 50+) i watched a couple of young British girls struggling with backpacks - two each if I recall - and thought, 'wow, they really don't get it.' At the airport, leaving Frankfurt, I weighed my carry-on (and only) bag, which included some books I'd bought in Paris - 5.5 kilos.
Over ten years ago we arrived in Australia for five weeks. The friend who met us at the airport said, 'where's the rest of your luggage?'

I've never seen a travel pack that can match a backpacking pack for comfort. I have trekked some with my Porter and found it comfortable enough. It is true the waistband is not very stout, but most travel packs have none at all.
