    Default Decent good quality back-pack???

    Gents I was wondering what backpacks, preferably day packs <60L, you are using or know of that are well designed and sturdy. I have had a look at K-way and first ascend bags and none strike my fancy.

    The use will be as a Go-bag, but not in the normal sense, it will double as a short distance (less than 15km) hiking bag so a hydration friendly design is preffered. It basically will compliment my "extended stay box" that stays in the vehicle.
    Thanks

    Source backpacks are just as nice as Camelbak, but significantly cheaper.

    I have had a mule for approximately 3 years that I've put it through a lot of abuse riding enduro motorcycles, hiking, caving, cycling and just as a small backpack that I still use everyday and take with me just about everywhere I go.

    Very comfortable, very good quality.

    I only understood why someone would pay that much for a backpack after owning one for a while.

    Seriously, if your buying it for serious medical work, drop some real change abd buy a Stat-Pack. They are bullet proof and purpose designed for the job.

    The agents in south africa are Stat-Tiakeni
