[pct-l] backpack recommendation

I'll third the recommendation for ULA packs.  Packs don't get any better
than ULA.  I'm aiming for about a 6lb base weight this hike so will be using
something lighter, but if my base weight was above 10lb I'd definitely go
with ULA again.

What backpack should I use on the pct?

My baseweight for the past eight years has been 22 pounds - I've reworked
the gear list to 15 pounds. This assumes a new 3 pound pack.

What are the most popular packs for thru hikers? What's your favorite pack?
If you could buy/make any pack for the pct, what would it be.
