My boyfriend and I were extremely pleased with our Gregory Cairn packs. We knew that the pack we choose could make or break our trip, and therefore were glad we were satisfied. However, while we got the 48L packs, I might suggest going a size bigger so you have room to bring back some of the amazing wares sold in Indonesia.
