      To each his own, really, on the subject of choosing a pack that takes weight off the shoulders. You have to experiment in-store with weight inside and the sales people making adjustments alongside. Some places do have various packs in their rental system, so experiment with them first.
      We have not had any luck here at Mountain Education carrying two weeks’ gear on extended courses using most any UL pack. Thus, we still use 1980s Kelty packs, winter or summer.

      Thanks for all the responses.
      I've been using internal frame packs for years but I haven't had much luck using the load lifters or moving the straps up to relieve the tension my neck and shoulders.
      It looks like I'll have to try an external frame.
