I'll be heading to Seattle and Vancouver in three weeks where I'll hopefully be doing some hiking during the day.

I'll only be out there for a week.

What size bag is suitable? there's a 55l one I like, but I feel it's waaaay too big. Is 40l better in my situation?

I've used a 25 or 30L klettersack to spend two and a half months abroad before. I'd go with 40 or less. Also, if you're going to Vancouver, check out the MEC store and maybe pick up a bag there. They have nice, quality stuff and it's pretty affordable. Especially when they have sales.

You mean hiking during the day where you return to a hotel or something that evening? If so you only need a day pack 25L or less.

Assuming you are just day hiking, I have and love the Deuter Airlite 22L. I have a long torso, and not many daypacks have the right fit for me, but it's perfect. If you are planning to backpack, then you need to try on some packs with weight--it's too important to have the right feel and fit to leave it to chance. I use backcountry.com for most outdoors purchases--their return policy makes it very easy to try things out and make sure they'll work for you.
