    I've been using a medium size mussette bag in OD for most of my needs.. It is tough as nails, costs around 16.00 and is great for day hikes.. and in warmer weather I strap ona bedroll and it can do as many as 3 days if you pack minimally.

    Highlander Forces 25 in OD as a day pack, Karrimor Sabre 45 for overnights and on my own Sabre 75 if with the boys, have the two side pouches as well that add approx another 20l of space to either of the Karrimor sacks, both in OD btw.

    I spent 6 years in the Army and was taught to trust my gear I feel the most confortable with their gear I tend to buy military surplus for that reason
