Herschel has a backpack for every situation. The Little America and Iona are both great for carrying large loads because they provide systems to ease the weight off your shoulders. However, you might want to rethink of how you will use them and on what occasions.

The Little America is a backpack intended for travelers who want to pack as much as they can for their trip. It's simply not something you want use on a daily basis. The Iona is much more practical for everyday use because of its “conventional” design emphasizing shoulder harnesses. Buy it if you need something for regular use.
