I have this campers backpack that is pretty awesome, was bought many years ago (from my childhood, Im 33 yrs old now). But its just too big. I need something I can wear while I ride a horse or motorcycle. This one the frame goes down near or past the buttocks :xeye: and I cant sit comfortably with it on my back.

Do they make a nice one of similar size at least, and can strap a sleeping bag on the top, and other things on outside of backpack easily?

Im not really a prepper kind of person,but I am considering doing some preping, especially since aliens are coming back Dec 2012 and no one knows their intentions. :D:

Cant find the pic of my backpack, but will look more

Everyone knows it's not aliens we have to worry about but the zombies. :D Ok, fraid going to need more information about what kind of bike do you ride. Is it street rocket or a combinatiion road / trail. First thing that struck me is a large fanny pack or even a sling style pack. Check out Maxpedition's site for examples of both.

I dont have a bike now.. but giving examples of what u cant do w this backpack. I basically want something easier to carry around and sit in. This backpack is awesome for hikers/backpackers/ campers/ caving, it doesnt seem very good for a BOB where u would throw it in the car, ride a bus with it on ur back etc...

I want to be able to sit down with it on my back.

Thnx for the links Ill check em out!

Im also thinking , after seeing some of the military packs on this site, that a military pack may work good.. I want something I can strap a sleeping bag to.. along w other things straped on the outside of the pack.

The packs I told you about , at the bottom of them is a sleeping bag compartment so its inside its own compartment and reachable at any time, away from whats sitting on top of it inside the main compartment. They run from 150-200 dollars and both the packs I discussed come from companies that their only business is packs and or tent systems.

Camelbak Cloud Walker. An excellent daypack. You can get it for $50 or so. It comes in black too.

The Klamast 75 looks nice! Am I thinking too large for a BOB? I see lots of people are using smaller bags.

Urban - I'd go with the 5.11 "COVRT 18"

Tactical - I'd go with the 5.11 "RUSH 72"

both solid build, well thought out design, have water bladder compartment and comfortable to wear.
