I am looking into overnight backpacks. I have seen great reviews on Columbia. But I'm also looking into osprey. If anyone can give me ideas other brands or reviews on these im looking for over 35L

Gregory or Osprey. If you're an ultralight guy, checkout Gossamer. I have an Osprey Aether 70. it does great, plus the top cap can come off and turn into a day pack. My wife has a 50L Osprey that she loves. My son has a Deuter which is fully adjustable with him growing. It's a pack he started using and will be able to as an adult. Last week we were on the AT backpacking and at camp some thru hikers had Gossamer packs. They were smaller and lighter. Would probably be ideal if you didn't have to tote as much gear and wanted to cut weight.

You can rent a pack from REI to try (FYI). Their equipment is pretty good. If you are near an REI shop there are many you can try and their staff will assist you. Packs are a personal choice. What works you me may not work for you.

My pack is made by Granite Gear. Great pack and excellent customer service.

He's right. It's really more about how it fits u not likely to
Go to the store and just grab one that will fit u properly.
