Looking for a good 30L-40L backpack?Hi I am having some trouble finding a suitable backpack, any help offered would be very much appreciated!
I went into shops today to gage the size I wanted and those between 30L and 40L seemed big enough for me. Now I would like to purchase online to save some money!
I definitely need lockable zips and I am finding it hard to check details like this on websites.
Here is an example of what I have been looking at:
This is for normal travelling for a month in India, no trekking or extended camping or anything.
Please help and thanks! :)

1I love my Millet 38L "Hiker" pack - good size, panel-loader, lots of pockets, hydration sleeve, super-comfortable, wouldn't trade it for anything. If security is your concern, with lockable zips, I would suggest buying a pack duffel - keeps everything in one place, lockable (although short of a hard-sided steel case nothing is going to stop someone with a blade getting into your bag), keeps straps away from malacious conveyor belts. Most of the duffels are much larger than a 40L pack, so you have space for those must-have souvenirs.

Would this be good for a 40L backpack to fit inside? Ever other one I have found is pretty expensive!

4I'm not the biggest fan of EuroHike stuff - the stuff I've had from them in the past has not stood up well to abuse. I'd be inclined to go with something that's built to take a beating - Osprey does a "Airporter" bag designed for the job
Yes, it's 20 quid, and it's over-sized for your pack, but if it's going to get abused and manhandled I'd rather invest the extra for peace-of-mind.

7Where do you live? If you're in Australia, I love my Kathmandu 38L Litehaul backpack. Kathmandu are normally pretty overpriced but I got it at 50% off. I recommend joining their membership club and looking out for good sales if you're an Australian.
I have the older model so I'm not sure if this current model has lockable zips or not.
