    With packs you get what you pay for. Do your research, understand your requirements, then you could find yourself getting into the high end packs, in that case buy used. For civilian pack Gregory, Osprey, 5 11, REI. Military grade Kifaru, Mystery Ranch, Stone Glacier, and EXO. Go to sites like Rockslide read all you can before you spend the money.

    Since this got resurrected, concerning #51 question on ILBE and #52 that they were disliked, if the info I have read is correct that could be due to not working with USMC body armor which is allegedly why those got dumped on the surplus market so fast. The ILBE is essentially an Arcteryx Bora which almost always got Good reviews from backpackers.

    Hill People Gear Tarahumara Pack. Pick the color you want according to the level of attention you want to draw to your pack.

    A bit of an old thread and obviously by the number of posts and age of this thread it is a very relevant topic with tons of options out there. With everything, it comes down to what you want to do with the kit. Are we talking about packs for the range, school, office, trail, BoB, etc? For backpacking, I'm a huge fan of Osprey and think they make some really great packs for all styles of backpacking and camping. Personally I'm rocking the Exos 48 and think it is the perfect pack for a few days on the trail based on capacity and weight. I have an Arcteryx Axios 50 that I can't get rid of as I'm a bit of an Arcteyx snob. It is great, but the Osprey crushes it in the weight department without compromising capability. For hunting and/or tactical, all depending on the scenario, I would probably pull out the Arcteryx Khard 45 in Wolf. Super rugged and has a high cool factor Otherwise as the last post states...just get outside and use your kit and see what you like or don't like.
