comment What is the difference in terms of application of a rucksack with greater than 50L capacity?
To me it is a bit unclear what exactly your question is about. On the one hand it looks like "Is a 55L pack appropriate in size for the stuff I plan to carry?", on the other hand it comes like "I come along with the 55L now but might need a bigger one in the future, is is worth investing more money into a bigger pack now?" and then the question title jumps in and causes a lot of confusion as I can't figure out how it fits to the rest. Could you please clarify?

comment Is there any upper temperature limit for a given sleeping bag?
@manoftheson I'm aware of the fact that is strongly dependent on my own body how warm a bag I can bear! So basically my question boils down to "If I buy a bag that has some reserve for cold fall or even winter nights, will it be totally useless in summer or will it just be not the best option I could have had?"
