50L or 65L Backpack?

Jump to last reply

After months of researching I am no closer to deciding which sized Osprey Aura backpack I should purchase for my 2-months across Europe. I was fitted for the pack and have at least decided which one I want, just not which size. According to stores, for the length of my trip I should take a 65L pack, and the same advice is suggested by other female hikers who enjoyed having the extra room for souvenirs and not having to mess with yanking things out every time they needed access to their belongings. However, it looks so clunky and this is my first major trip and I want comfort to be priority #1 so a lighter pack seems much more appealing. The smaller pack is also cheaper, and I think I could fit it in the overhead bins at least on my U.S. flights which saves a lot of money too... but from what I can tell online about European discount airlines it would probably have to be checked baggage even at 50L. We will be sleeping in hostels and using a rental car for the first 2.5 weeks of our trip around Ireland and Scotland so we will be pretty mobile but we can sling them in the trunk if need be, we won't be hiking with our packs the whole time. Once we lose the rental car we will be a little more restricted in where we are able to leave them in some of the smaller cities where we are hosteling it up- but most of the big cities we will have hotel rooms. My husband will have a 65L and I plan to mail small trinkets home from the big cities we hit.
If any of the above blabber has swayed your opinion to recommend one size pack over the other I am all ears. I am mostly concerned about comfort, convenience, and how to transport it on flights. I'd also hate to buy one and find out it is no where close to fitting what I have. I plan to bring the following: (Suggestions for how many cubes I'd need, also welcome).

5 shirts
1 pants
2 leggings
1 shorts
2 dresses
4 socks (2 hiking, 2 regular)
Hiking shoes
sandals
1 sleep shirt/short
1 light jacket
1 microfiber travel towel
1 plastic travel laundry bag
7 underwear
2 bras

Hairbrush
mini shampoo
extremely mini hair straightener (non negotiable)
mini deodorant
mini lotion
small makeup bag
hair ties
toiletries
detergent packs
(throwaway razors)

Tablet & charging cord
Passport, Drivers License, Credit Cards, money
(Some of these items will go to husbands money belt)
Backup paperwork (ID/reservations)
Tiny Camera
memory card
International charger
mini flashlight
journal & pens

Am I forgetting anything?
