I'm curious in your opinion how a internal frame pack feels vs. an external?

I have an external but considering buying an internal as a 2nd pack, either way I need a 2nd pack for elk this fall...

would a 3900cu in internal be basically the same as an external except the frame is internal?


what is the advantage/disadvantage in your view of an internal/external?



do external handle big/heavy loads, ie an elk quarter better than an internal?

thanks.
