Well you know this is always a matter of preference,comfort and practicality..

I went for the Aztec Hobo 80l..

Plenty of compartments.
rip stop,
nice hollow in the back for breathability,
adjustable frame,
sits nice on the hips for heavy loads.

Has a zip off smaller day pack which i take when I leave the bigger unit at camp..
It gets all the REAL emergency gear in it too..REALLY useful

Of course it's not 'CAMO' though..that might be a consideration,..But I prefer not to look too 'military'.. rather like a regular hiker/camper.

Don't like drawing unwarranted attention.

Hey, impressive bag it looks like a good sturdy all-rounder.

Whats the capacity of the day sack is it 30L and 50L for the main sack or what not?

Don'tchya hate working..Totally interferes with your net life

I'd have to take a stab at 25-30l on the day pack.. It feels like you're wearing a kid's satchel anyway.. Very inobtrusive.

I get inside.
First Aid kit
Survival Tin
Windup torch/radio/bat charger
Mini fishing rod/lures/line
Storm lighter.
Knife & sheath
Mess tin & stove +bottle of extra gel fuel.
Compact cutlery
handline/copper snare pack

Mug and water bottle fix to straps.

2weeks worth of beef Jerky.. mmmmmmm if I don't eat it first...

vit tablets
2 weeeks coffee sachets/soup packets..

Now If I could only find room for a hot blonde and a tin of whipped cream
