Go to rei with all your gear and the food you will need for the longest trip you envision.  Load candidate packs with the gear and food and 2 liters of water.  Walk around the store for 10 minutes and then try the next candidate.

Not sure if other packs have this feature, but Gregory packs have a sternum strap that is adjustable up or down.

Just as others have mentioned, fit is the most important thing, so you really should try them on first, just like boots.

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.
