hey thanks. There are a couple of Redwing 44s on Amazon right now. One is 125 bucks but there there's this one. It's $85. Is it an older model? Is it authentic, do you think?
I like this one: Kelty Red Wing, though I have the 40L one for women. I needed a backpack for hiking/camping and also air travel, and this is a good choice for that combination, I think.
I have a Kelty Redwing 44L and I love it. Not very long, pretty light (3.3 lbs), and works as a carry-on...I think.
I'm a fan of ultra-light backpacking gear and there's a lot of cross-pollination with solo traveling.
The most important things to have are my sunglasses and headphones. #4 and #5 of my out-of-the-house essentials (phone, wallet, keys).
As far as soaps and shampoos, if I'm not getting back on a plane for a few days, I buy a small bottle of each locally and just leave it behind.
