Hi everyone, New hear and wanted to poll the crowd with a very tough decision I am having. I am looking at getting a new pack and have it narrowed down to 3 packs. The Maxpedition RiftCore, Direct Action Dragon Egg, and First Tactical Tactix .5 day pack. I have done quite a bit of research reading reviews, watching youtube video after youtube video(and even re-watching them), and now skimming forums to see if something can separate these. The main purpose of this new pack would be for day hikes and traveling(airplane carry on and weekend trips) Let me know what you think of these packs and any advice you have. Thanks in advance!
