    Anything in particular you are interested in?

    Here's my current favorite, the USGI MOLLE II Assault Pack:

    For day pack use I can also recommend the L.L. Bean nylon Continental Rucksack, the medium ALICE pack, the Spec-Ops Recon Ruck and the Spec-Ops T.H.E. pack. All are good bags and all have their strengths and weaknesses.

    Perhaps the best value in a large day pack right now is the medium ALICE. It is possible to find good used examples with shoulder straps for around $30, even less if you look hard.

    Maxpedition Condor II with 2 M-4 pouches, and an FR1 First Aid Kit. I can extend this into a three day bag with the modular pouches.

    you gotta fix those TACTIEs - your pouches look very bouncy but should be way more snug.

    My Finn bag.

    It works great for dayhikes, and will hold a lot more gear than you would think.
    It's also nice not to have your back get all sweaty from a backback when you really don't need that much capicity.

    I bought this Mountainsmith pack almost 20 years ago to haul books around in college. It's been fantastic. It's my day hike, snowboarding, bow stave expedition, overnight, carry-on, do it all bag. I can't tell you how many times I've had it loaded down with 50-60#s of steel wedges, axes, and maul for a woods hike to cut bow wood, yet it's still none the worse for wear.

    My favorite day pack is a home-made version of the Duluth Pack Rucksack. The base material is 1000 denier Cordura with lining of ripstop nylon and mil. Spec. nylon webbing. All seams are bound with nylon grosgrain ribbon and sewn inside-out so there are no seams exposed externally. The pack is fully lined with a padded back and 1” x 1/16” aluminum stays. The pack straps are padded, contoured and removable. Quick-release buckles allows the pack to be dropped virtually instantly is necessary. There is no belt. The strap connection causes the pack to wrap around the body so the pack is worn almost like a vest.

    The pack front, sides, flap and bottom all have PALS webbing with the standard spacing of 1” between rows and 1.5” channels. The PALS allows gear to be strapped on and MOLLE-compatible pouches and pockets to be attached. The MOLLE system of weaving the attachment straps through the PALS grid secures the pocket almost as though it had been sewn in place.

    The pack is a drawstring-closed top loader. I have no way to exactly determine the capacity but estimate about 1100 cu. Inches.

    The flap contains a Velcro-closed flap pocket and the interior of the pack has a small, removable stash pocket for small items.

    The pockets shown are also made from 1000 denier Cordura with MOLLE connecters on the back. I find the flat pockets very useful for organizing small kits without shifting the center-of-gravity

    I usually carry rolled rain gear strapped to the top row of PALS on the flap. So far, I haven’t had any need to strap anything to the bottom. The pint flasks are carried in foam padded/insulated carriers. Unused PALS channels can carry pen-type tools and accessories. The strap pockets carry a GI trauma bandage, and a small fire-making kit. The pack is large enough to carry enough gear for an emergency bivouac.

    I’m considering a re-design of this pack, essentially the same but with slot pockets on the front, sides, and back and a removable padded belt, all made of 500 denier Cordura.

    After adding a 2 liter platypus bladder its turned into a pretty good day pack!

    Maxped typhoon w/ 10x4, small maxped pouch(cant remember name) and USGI canteen kit. The only thing I don't like about it is having to attach the canteen in that spot if I wanna carry 2 quarts of water.

    I don't have a chipmunk on mine, just cat hair. :4:

    A Condor 4x10 bottle holder, Maxped. roly poly (not on tonight) modified Condor dual pistol mag pouch holds my hatchet nicely. Condor medic pouch and a Condor Cellphone/GPS Pouch completes my get-up.
