    I am a proud owner of a new Arcteryx Spear 20 in silver sage. You can check it out on REI's website. I'll post pics someday. My favorite pack by far. Surpasses anything i've owned by Maxped.

    Berghaus Munro 35. Super-simple, small enough for EDC and big enough for overnighters. No zips, PALS, bladder pouches, external pockets or organisation (bar one tiny zipped pocket in the lid). Immensely strong, lightweight ally frame, comfy, only available in OD ;D I keep selling/swapping/giving them away and then immediately buying another. My Kifaru Zulu is probably a better pack really, but it will never replace the Munro in my heart.

    Being officially an "old guy" I have had an ongoing love affair with the large ALICE pack (dump it all in; dump out as needed) for many years. But recently I picked up a used, VG condition Army ACU MOLLE II assault pack (not the patrol version, this is the big guy with 4000 cubic inches in the main section and an additional 500 cubic inches in each of the two side "sustainment" pouches). Cost was a bit less than $50.

    I have to say that compared to the Alice pack the MOLLE II is a fantastic improvement in materials, comfort (I'm especially impressed with the shoulder straps and the waist belt), and construction. When I don't use it for backpacking I pile all of my other various bags and packs in it. Plenty of these MOLLE packs out there for very reasonable prices, too. But, it is tactical to the max (ACU camo).

    Always glad to help out another EDC Forum member. After the pack arrives let me know what you think of it.
