I'm looking to buy a mid-size backpack for under $50.I'm useing it as my hunting pack so i dont need a huge pack but i would like one that i can take all i need incase something happens and im out there a day or 2. im leaning toward a military spec for durablity unless you guy's know of a civilian pack that is durable. would perfer realtree cammo instead of one solid color but miltary cammo would work. but the most important to me is a pack that is tuff and WILL last.plz leave links if you can to where to buy one.

i was looking at this one but after reading the reviews i decided against it but if the backpack was made right it would be perfect but it has plastic zippers and alot of complants of the shoulder straps breaking.and after looking at the straps i can see those clamps arnt made to hold ALOT of pressure which is needed on pack straps they should have made the strap like the alice pack straps

I've backpacked quite a bit. Here's my advice. If you plan on carrying something for three days, you better spend more than $50. Why? I guarantee if you carry a pack several times a year, you'll end up buying a better pack anyway. I would buy a good name brand pack that you have tried on, filled with sandbags from your local hiking store and marched around in a little bit. You definitely get what you pay for in a backpack.

I picked that one up about 2 years ago. It was just way too small for me.

I got this one shortly afterwards and it wasn't bad. The two netted pockets each fit a 1 qt canteen perfectly. Was also nice because of the small detachable pack. But the plastic belt clip broke and the nylon tore while in my trunk.

So I went with this one: US Army Tactical Molle Assault Backpack
Still has the removable smaller pack. Overall it has more space. I can fit everything I had in that black bag and still have plenty of room to spare. You can add MOLLE pouches and instead of canteens, it has a place in it for a camelback bladder. It's much more durable. I love it so far. It's a little more than $50, but very worth it.

I have a selection.

It sounds like you would need a small Rio Grande

It's frameless, light, but very tough and comes in a variety so solid and cammo colors. They make great 3 day packs.
