    I've got a Polish Bread Bag for day trips or a Swedish LK 35. I use a Rio Grande 45 L for most outings and a Rio Grande 75 L for long trips.

    Depends on the outing. My most-used packs are:

    Osprey Atmos AG (65 L) for overnight trips
    LL Bean continental rucksack (33 L) for bushcrafty day outings when I pack more gear with minimal hiking in mind
    Gregory Z22 (22 L) for day hiking (especially long day hikes)
    Mountainsmith Tour (9 L) for minimalist hikes and/or short jaunts into the woods

    I've been using a medium alice pack with after market shoulder straps and hip belt. With those additions this thing carries like a dream. Bullet proof!

    I've got a couple of running packs, couple of day packs, couple of multi-day packs, but just one hunting pack :) Stone Glacier Krux frame with a Serac 1700 pack on it for day hunts (a Sky 5900 bag for multi-day trips)

    Condor Compact Assault. For winter use I've added a pair of usgi sustainment pouches on the sides and a usgi waist pack on the bottom to hold a poncho/tarp, poncho liner, hammock and underquilt. Sort of bulky but doable.

    My black Dana Design Bombpack. I purchased it in 1993, and it's still going strong... SAR work, caving, survival trips, canyoneering, and world travelling. I use it every time I go somewhere.

    Formerly used an Kelty Redwing. Currently using an Osprey Atmos AG 65. Loved both packs for different reasons. Kelty was more durable, Osprey rides far better.

    But looking to trade in for an Osprey Levity 45 as I move towards a sub 15# baseweight.

    Lk35 with British Ammo pouches on the side. Oh, and a shameless plug for the FoxLite Gear pouch made by my wife. :)

    How does it carry once the canteen is full ? I've found that a full canteen can throw balance off if not properly placed .

    I’ve been eyeing that bag for the same uses you mentioned. How is the durability and distribution of weight? Does it ride well?

    Have only taken it a few times in the field so durability is yet to be seeen

    Longest distance being 2-3 miles
    Has not been a problem
    I am on the slimmer side 5’9 160 lbs and comfort is fine
    At $30 purchase price its great at $50-$60 list price i see i would hesitate to give it high praise

    Thanks. If you think about it in the future, give me an update. I'm thinking about buying the camo one which costs more than the black, so I'm with you--at $30 it looked good. I'm not sure about $60.

    Nowadays I mostly use the Norwegian army small ruck (M96).
    I use it both on overnighters and extended day trips.
    Mine have added sidepockets made from hip pouches (I got one from my son in Law to make a pair). They could easily be removed (sort of a molle fastening).
