Hi all,
I'm planning on following the Le Puy -Roncevaux route in September.
What rucksack would you advise? Would a 35 litre rucksack suffice?

Plenty big enough-and keep the weight to 6-7 kgs

I made my first Camino, a part of the French Way, last September. I bought a 38 l Deuter backbag
and that was just enough for me. 35-38 l is nearly the same. No need to carry extra clothes or things.
Most important was how easy it was in use- enough pockets to keep water, maps and money handy.
And it must be good for your shoulders and hip. Test it carefully. I didn´t like too many straps.
And of course rain cover.
Buen Camino! Tuulis
