    Somebody had a RAID or Cobra pack on clearance for $55 that I saw the other day. I'm digging through my browser history without much luck. I'll post if I find it.

    It was in ACU, but a $4 package of RIT dye would likely fix that.

    Supply Captain has a Cobra pack for $70 off, it's only $99. Again, in ACU.

    And LBT puts their extras on sale on fleabay.

    Gear whore that I am, I'm always watching what they throw on there for sale.

    The Eagle AIII Molle can be had with a kit of add on pouches. The Eagle does have Molle on the sides whereas the LBT doesnt, but I couldnt pass up the deal I got on it. I even got a tour of the place where they make them. My vote goes for Eagle AIII Molle, SKD has the add on pouch kit.

    I have a Condor II from Maxipedition that I love and use a lot. It will do what you want and is not to big and has the ability to add hydration if you want.

    I have a Condor 3 Day Assault Pack. I love it. Very comfortable, lots of padding and storage...well made. I have beaten the hell out of it too. Several Mojave trips, weekend camping, hunting. No rips, tears, shreds, anything.

    CTD probably has them for less if they are in stock.

    How much does the total kit weigh, and how much space does it take up? Would a commercial pack from Jansport or North Face be out of the question?

    I miss my Camelbak HAWG, it died a horrible death when it flung off my motorcycle. I had it strapped on my CBR's tail like I always have. I was really lucky because when I retrieved the HAWG I found out it was rubbing on the rear tire before it flew off! Everything I had in the HAWG survived except my pocket mask and a bdu belt both melted because of the tire. My Iphone also survived with only part of the slider case chewed off. I used the HAWG for just about everything for small hikes, college, carry the essentials to stay over at the gf's, range bag, etc.. I never found it to be to small, I thought it was perfect and was suprised how much you stuff you can cram into it! It was the older 1000D cordura version. The newer one is the 500D cordura version, I saw they also have a 1000D version in the new style. I haven't found anyone who has the newer 1000D version besides Tad Gear I think.

    What he said. I got mine for around $99.00 (I think) on sale through ATS, a couple of years ago. The RAID is very well constructed, however, the cost goes up when you start adding pouches. It's small enough and comfortable to hump in the field, without being too ungainly, while being large enough to store a significant amount of kit. The RAID or RAID II (improved with feedback from folks down range in the sandbox) at $179.00, it's still money well spent.

    I really like Osprey packs for medium-duty use

    Here's the website.
    http://www.ospreypacks.com/Packs/AtmosSeriesMens/
    I've gotten mine at REI. I have 3 packs of various sizes and love them. They are very tough, but not as heavy-duty as Kifaru.

    The suspension and ventilation of these packs make them real standouts in warm and/or humid conditions. The packs in this range have very rifle-butt-friendly straps that do not really interfere with mounting/ firing a rifle.
