Questions & Answers for MEC Pangea 60 Travel Pack

Question

Does the 60 L volume of the Pangea 60 include the 15 L daypack or is it separate?

If you hold a Pangea 40 next to a Pangea 60 it is pretty hard to believe that there is only a 5L difference between them (daypack obviously excluded).

The Pangea 60L comes with the 15L day pack.

Question

The last answer was a bit unclear. 60L means 45L in the main pack, plus 15L in the detachable pack? Or the main pack has 60L on its own?

This is just confirming that the previous answer is correct! We got the info straight from our Technical Developer for this pack just to be sure: 45 + 15 =60. Thanks!

I dont work for MEC but the main pack is 45L and comes with a 15L day pack

45+15 = 60

If you look at the Staff Member response to a similiar question for the Pangea 75 it will confirm this.

You don't specify either how long she will be away for, or how much gear she will be carrying... but chances are she will want a capacity between 50 and 80 litres. Smaller (40 to 50L) would be great if she is not gone long and/or packing light. Larger (60-80L) for long trips and lots of gear-think sleeping bags, stove, tent?
It's hard to recommend a pack without more detail. You can always call our Service Center at 1-800-663-2667 and we will be able to give some more detailed recommendations.
One thing I can say is that the most important deciding factor will be fit and comfort. No matter how expensive and fancy a pack is, how many little pockets and features, she will be miserable if it doesn't fit her right. Trying on a pack before buying is ideal, but at the very least pay attention to proper pack sizing and back length.
Take a look at some women's specific models too-especially for smaller girls, they can provide a much better fit.
