Expedition Backpacks

My husband and I like to do long trips, 10-12 days. As I am sure you know, for that long of a trip, it's mostly food in backpack. I have carried a Gregory Petit Dru for almost 20 years. It's 85L. I love this pack sits it rides well on the hips and even carrying over 45 pounds, it just doesn't seem like a lot of weight. My question is does any female have a favorite big pack they just love? I do carry a Osprey Aerial 65 L for "shorter" trips.

@Garmire I’m not female but you should check out the 5400 Porter from Hyperlite Mountain Gear. It’s super strong and would save you 4.5 pounds in pack weight alone.
