Stumbled upon the TAD fast pack and apart from the grommets in the bottom of the pack its looking like a great option.
I'm trying to decide on one of these packs for a larger vehicle to back EDC/GHB/BOB
So I think im trying to find a pack that would suit a number of scenarios when loaded and I'm...
DAMN! Just when I thought I was ready to settle on what packs I was going to collect,
I stumble upon Kelty Military Tactical's Kifaru/Mystery Ranchesque packs at about 1/2

There's lots of discussion here about what to put in the bag, but I think there is a lot to be said about the bag/backpack its self. Are there any that stand out to you guys? What materials and features would be most suitable for the possibility of having to live out of this bag indefinitely...
