    Am thinking of buying Black Wolf Tempo 40 litres rucksack which is lightweight & reasonably priced for my Camino next year. Would love to hear from anyone who has either used one or can offer an opinion on it re lightweight/ durability etc. Also, I am taking a smaller day pack & any advice how to carry it along with my bigger pack would be great !

    Hey Ampiji - Although I wasn't familiar with this backpack until this morning, what I've read about it now sounds like it would work fine for you. The 40L pack will be more than adequate for what you need to take and the fact that this pack only weighs 1 kg is great.

    Ideally, you live in a location where you can try on this pack. Fit is so important! My wife and I both use Osprey 36L packs. I mention this only because we were able to pick packs that nicely fit each of us. For women there is the Sirrus model that comes in two sizes: XS/S and S/M. Similarly for men, there is the Stratos in S/M and M/L. Both of these packs are about a pound heavier than the Black Wolf, but for us, proper fit was more important than weight (we compensated elsewhere to keep our loads light). As my wife is only 5'2", the smaller pack fits her quite nicely. As you will be walking many days and many kilometers, a proper fitting pack is essential. Buen Camino!

    I recommend that whatever pack you decide to use, use it in your your walking training before you head out on the Camino. When you are on the Camino, equipment problems are more difficult to fix.
