Hi @BrianW ,

Sounds like you have an exciting trip planned! There are many options for backpacks that we could recommend for you. Since everyone's needs, comfort, fitness levels are different it's hard to make a recommendation for you without a little more information. Most people that we are outfitting for the AT and this section are going ultralight, so a 40L-60L pack is the most popular. 

I would recommend an Outfitting appointment at your local REI. It would give you one on one time with one of our experts to size, fit, and find the perfect pack for your adventure. Follow this link to find an appointment near you!

Shenandoah is the most beautiful section of the AT, in my opinion. Happy Trails!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
