    D'ohh! Yep! Mystery Ranch and Kelty also have their own tactical lines as well.

    I like them all, and have owned stuff from each of them, but the cost increase from maxpedition to those companies is HUGE. Their products are without a doubt made tougher than maxpedition's stuff, but is it necessary for 99% of customers? I don't believe so. Maxpedition has its place here.

    As much as I like TadGear's stuff, the pricing is downright offensive.

    One more: probably one of the first tactical manufacturer's to open-up the civilian market, along with Eagle more than a decade ago, The Wilderness

    As someone who designs gear (though, not bags) I can say that Arc'teryx is churning out the most durable and advanced gear of anyone on the market today. I have simply massive respect for them. The Blade 24 is a phenomenal bag.

    They are basically the Apple of outdoor stuff. They can afford to use techniques and materials that nobody else seems to have the huevos to pull off in mass production. As a bonus, their stuff doesn't have all the PALS webbing on it like some bag on an infantry grunt in Kabul.

    If you want non tactical but very durable and well designed with lots of useful storage then Tumi get my vote.

    Seconded. I have an MS daybag that's been to Hades and back and looks brand new. Generous padding too.

    I like 5.11. May not be the best materials but certainly not crappy.

    I checked out quite a few of the manufacturers mentioned here and most of them caught my eye. Blackhawk, TAD Gear, Spec-Ops... to mention a few. I like the fact that alot of it is USA made as well!! That's always a plus!!
