Consider a Kelty Redwing as well if you want something affordable and mid sized. For something large look into surplus ILBE gear.

The Ilbe rucksack looks nice but may just be a little too big and possibly a little cheaply made. Or am i wrong?

5 11 rush 72 is great, I just got one, all my gear fits in it with extra room, and talk about pockets, lots of zippered mesh ones. I put several external pouchs on the webbing that's all over it.

The bigger packs are great too carry more gear, maybe for an inch.

Check out Maxpedition bags. I have the Vulture II and it has been above perfect and its under your $200 mark.

I didnt fancy any of the maxpedition bags. Ive been looking for two days straight and the only two that really pop out are the ones i originally listed. The 5.11 seems to have better publicity and advertisement and maybe thats why its a better seller but i hope i can find some reviews on both

Too big? Depends on what you need to haul and it will haul a lot. You might even object to the camo as well. But if it is true military issue that has been gone over carefully by a good pack resale company then it will last you through a war if necessary. In fact it has likely survived one war already. What else can you want from a pack when you are thinking about durability?

I would try the bags on before I would purchase if you can. Cabelas and ****s Sporting goods have weighted bags you can put inside to simulate how they will feel with your gear in them. I wish I had a chance to do that with the Rush 72 but I could not find it in stock locally. So I had it shipped and low and behold when I put about 25 lbs of gear in it pinched my shoulders around the trapezius muscles. It did seem to be a very quality pack with great construction and lots of storage pockets. Good luck

I did a detailed review on the Maxgear X-7 Tactical Laptop backpack in the Aussie forum section here:

https://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...hlight=maxgear

US$97, not including the shipping.
Very tough pack, a much better design than the Maxpedition models, IMHO.

Plenty of Molle straps to add smaller pouches to.

Dozens of more pics on Simon's site, that I linked to in the review, that shows size measurement and additional carrying options.

Camelback BFM is awesome for a three-day style pack.

I have the Rush 72 for my BoB. At first I overloaded it because of all the cool pockets with zippers and velcro. Now it's at about 30 lbs without water. Nice pack, have done day trips with it a couple times. I ended up purchased a backpacking frame from a garage sale and mounted it on that.

I'm using the Rush 12 with additional pouches from Maxpedition. It's actually my EDC bag and I stuff most of the essentials in the front pockets while the main compartment holds more mundane stuff like magazines, lunch and a spare tshirt.

I just came back fram gander mtn, and got to play with both the 72 and the 24. The 72 is huge, and at 5.3 lbs, pretty heavy empty. I don't see much need for attachments other than a water bottle holder maybe.
I really like this bag despite the weight.

The 24 is a little lighter at about 3.5 lbs and is a good fit on me(5'8" 190). The biggest drawback to me is it has no waistbelt although one can be attached. If I were to get the 24 I would add the 6.6 attachment, and 2 water bottle holders. The 6.6 fit perfect on the front flap.

I read one review that the guy said the waistbelt on the 72 was useless for him at 6'2.

Hope this helps, I'm still shopping

Bjj thanks. Thats why i was considering the soc bag it already has built in removable frames i guess you could say.

Parker- im only 5'10" so hopefully it will work better.
NO REVIEWS ON THE SOC LONG RANGE?
It seems to have pros and cons to the 5.11 if you look into it some of the features of the soc are a lot better but im still unsure
Heres a pic

Not hands on. I've looked at it online. I like what I see. I like the camelbak bfm too, if nothing else it's made in USA.

The 72 fit me perfectly, I'm sure it will work for you

+1 on the Rush 72. Durable, easy to organize, slot for camel pack w/ straw holes, nice comfy belts, bottom has 4 molle slots to strap stuff to the bottom, molle loaded and the strapped rear allows you to put large sized items in it like a helmet and tighten it down. Great pack. I went with the sandstone color as i think it best matches my surroundings and a lot less than the multicam and adding different color pouches or MC pouches and its camo'd out.

Only minor complaint is it wants to fall over when set down.
