Once you get your new packs, fill gallon milk jugs with water an load up your packs to the weight you'll be carrying (or a little more) while doing conditioning hikes. This has the virtue of being able to lighten your load quickly, by emptying a jug or two, if you need to.

FWIW: a gallon of water is 8 pounds.
