Sierra Designs Ministry 40 Backpack - 2441cu in
Unless you're often heading out for extended, multi-day trips, the Sierra Designs Ministry 40 Backpack falls into the perfect capacity middle-ground to make it useful for almost all of your excursions into the backcountry. At 40 liters, the Ministry can easily handle an overnighter but won't weigh down your 2 hour woods exploration at only 4 pounds, 8 ounces.
- Multiple compression straps allow the pack to adapt to load size
- Gear loops for external gear carry
- Separate crampon pocket keeps sharp, snow-covered crampons away from the rest of your gear
- Ski loops for winter backcountry travel
- Ventilation conduit promotes airflow between the pack and your back
- Thermo-molded S-curve shoulder straps and waistbelt for custom fit
- Hipbelt stabilizers keep your load from shifting suddenly and throwing your balance

Talk shop with all the gear freaks out there: ask 'em questions, upload/browse photos, and give your 2¢.
It will be cutting it close. If it is more or less empty you will probably make it as it will just squeak under the 45 linear inches, if it is full you will probably be over. Then again you may get a friendly TSA agent who will let it fly.
