I am by no means an expert backpacker, but I am something of a gearhead. I try to take a couple of 3-5 day trips on the AT each year and have one coming up in several months. Since I can usually get great pricing through my job, I like to make the most of it which brings me to my dilemma...

I currently have a Kelty Shadow and I thought the weight on the pack was excellent, but was lacking a little on the comfort side. I'm considering upgrading to the Bora 80 and would like input on what pack the true experts would recommend as the best pack for comfort. Thanks!
Shadow or Bora
