I use the same Atmos 50 for my multi day excursions. It's 5 or so years old and probably has close to 1000 miles on it by now and it still looks brand new. Its the perfect pack for me and cant find anything to complain about it.

For day trips, around town, festies,  and simple summer overnighters i use an old ass Osprey Talon 22.
This thing has been everywhere with me and really needs to be replaced. I just cant replace anything till it falls apart and the pack is still in good condition besides the stains and wear and tear from all the abuse i threw at it.

Osprey in my opinion makes the best packs hands down.
I would never buy another brand.

This is in the White mountains with Mt Washington being pinched..

I just checked and in 25 year I don't have a descent pic of my pack, that I can find.

It a Dana Design I bought in 1988 or 89. The pack has worked great for all theses years and I have no plans to replace it.

I have a few military packs, but my main hiking pack is an LL Bean weekend pack. I have used it for 3-5 day trips as well since I go ultralight. I think I originally paid about $80 dollars for it. In the 4 years I have owned it I damaged it one time. Since LL bean has a lifetime guarantee I called them up told them what happened. 2 Days later I received my new pack and a prepaid shipping label to ship my damaged one back. Plus they gave me a $20 dollar LL bean gift card!!

35 Liter, 2 lb. 07ounces

Backpack from last years trip



This year I'll probably take my bike, use some 5gal bucket panniers and for a good fraction of the way walk it along like a mule (w/o riding it). Might need to get a new rucksack as one of the straps has been damaged.

5.11 Rush 72



Mostly use it while traveling. Fits in an urban environment, and is really practical, you can open the whole bag up, so its really easy to pack.

Traveled for over 5 months with only this backpack.

High Sierra Long Trail 90L. Couldn't be happier with it. Fits everything I need it to. I live in the woods out of this thing.

30L.  Internal flexible frame. Biggest backpack I wanted to get for bicycle camping. Good for short length trips. Love it. Plenty of room. Always hammock camping.

I have two extremes.

Smaller is a ski backpack. North Face Off Chute 25 which I bought about 10 or 12 years ago. It's really good for a night or two. This pack is so awesome I can't understand why it isn't made anymore. I have taken this thing many many places. It's good for backcountry skiing, as well.



Larger is a Gregory Denali Pro 105. It was given to me a few years back. Really nice pack. I can fit many many things in here. Comfy for long hauls also.

USMC issued back pack. Ive had this thing since boot camp in 2003 The most durable back pack I have ever used. I've attached a hydration system. Good for a couple of nights.



Right now I'm using an alice pack circa desert storm. Its garbage for what I need it for but it works.



I plan on getting this pretty soon.

I see a lot of those on military surplus websites and stuff like that for good prices, I guess there's always a risk of getting one that's beat all to hell though.

I don't understand why some people lean towards military gear, it doesn't make sense to me at all.

Perhaps because military gear is often tried and true, and surplus is often much cheaper than comparable brand name stuff at retail prices.  I'm not saying it's always the best option, but for some it might be.

I choose military because it is reliable. Its been tested in the field and approved for use. Often you will find it to be cheaper as well.

I do have to admit that the alice pack is garbage, but I paid $20 for it years ago.

I also picked up a USMC modular sleep system rated  -50°F. It cost me $30.

So price and durability is what I look for. I do not buy from surplus. I usually get my gear from people who have used it once or twice.

Alot of people steer towards military gear because as mentioned it's tried and tested in the field. Plus it's durable as fuck and can be found for cheap.
Also the modular ability and being able to attach many different things to the pack (MOLLE/Alice gear)
Either that, or they just want to play survival army man.
Military gear tends to be on the heavy as fuck side though, that's their biggest downside IMO. That plus I find some military stuff to be a bit clunky.
But overall military grade stuff is generally gonna last longer and is usually much more durable than it's commercial counterparts. An example would be especially in terms of stuff like e-tools, 7 cord mil-spec 550 lb test paracord vs commercial paracord. military packs are heavy but hella durable. etc.

I got a military style bug out bag.. it's ridiculously big:

Pics don't really show the full size... it's huge.. and like 3 layers deep.. so many compartments and straps and shit inside.
I like it but it's kind of clunky and pretty heavy. It carries a ton of gear though, and so many compartments and pockets and shit it's easy to organize gear.

If I was backpacking I'd still prefer my Granite Gear Nimbus Meridian.. thing is light as fuck, well balanced and carries a ton of gear easy. Only two compartments (and an addon pouch I added), but I can carry more weight much easier with that thing, it's more centered, narrower and better distributes the weight.

Internal frame packs for comfort...
External frame packs if you want to carry a ton of shit and have lots of pockets and straps and shit

Just picked up this bag

http://m.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3998003




My big bag is way too big for 2-3 day trips, and my small bags don't offer a lot of support. Excited for this one.
