If you have the $ to add a couple pockets or pod, the T2 is going to be your best bet...unless you are going for over 10 days.
I would get 2 medium hip belt pockets and 1 small, that will give you enough room (with the T2) to accomplish just about anything.
I can't decide between the T1 or the T2 so I will have to wait to cast a vote. I hate being back and fourth.
Aron and I talked a lot before I ordered mine. It should be shipping tuesday. I got the T2 with XTL lid, grabit, lash kit, two small hip belt pouches, chamber pouch, 4 UL pullouts and a back pouch. My thought process is I have 6000 Cu inches with the pack and two belt pouches. The back pouch was just for an extra volume just in case. My dad's pack is 3500 and it has molle so he could use it if need be. I also don't have super UL gear so I wanted to be able to put more gear on the outside if I am hauling meat. But we will see when I play with it. Good luck on your decision. I'll post pics at end of week hopefully.
Thanks for the help guys, It's not about cost. I was definitely looking at adding the pockets Aron mentioned and the grab-it for my bow. The other question is should I get the horizontal lash kit or the vertical or both for strapping the bow on, or anything else? Also I was looking at the slandered lid, what advantage would the XLT really be other than adding a extra small pocket? I am going to order one of them tomorrow and don't want to flip a coin.
Aron, I know this thread was to vote on a pack not trying to take away from that. Thanks again guys
