I'm looking to stuff my camera bag, coffee, water, and saltwater (for fasting) all into a day pack. Amazon trying to sell me some garbage from china that will instantly break. I'm pretty rough on things. Any recommendations?

I don't want a shitty backpack, I want a good back pack. I don't want to go fart around at Academy, Cabela's, or REI. I just want to buy it online, and get something that will last.

how are you going to find one that fits your high standards if you don't put in the work retard

That's what you're looking for. German or Scandinavian if you want quality, American if you want cheap and don't care about that "stolen valor" bullshit the burgers are always on about.

Nice, I'm not really a patch/velcro/molle strap guy though.

>>1977207
Obviously I've heard of milsurp?

I guess I'm going to have to fucking go shopping and grab a few packs, all the Amazon ones have good reviews until you see the 1stars that show ripped cheap shit.

Any high quality brand recs at least?
My REI backpack is pretty awesome, it's just too big for what I want here and I don't really like the way it opens at the top.

I've had a 5.11 rush24 I've beat the dog shit out of for around 5 years, and it's still kicking. Recently scored a LBT day pack that's great also.

Osprey talon 22L, lightweight, very comfortable, not too big yet still able to carry quite some weight, even with high weight good distribution, did a 2 hour fast walking hike with about 10 to 15kg in there after a trip and i barely noticed it.
>>
>>1977309
pic related, very sturdy also
>>
>>1977314
I wish there were a pack like this that didn't look like absolute garbage.
>>
>>1977309
I use one for day hikes. The body is 70D x 100D, while the bottom is much thicker, I think 450D, so sturdy enough. I like it because the the AirWhatever mesh back panel (similar to the Arc Blast and a bunch of other Osprey bags) and the fact that it has an actual hip belt.
>>
>>1977189
these are heavy as fuck.

hey a hyperlight mountain gear 3300. perfectly fine as a day pack.

Sorry Anon, but you can only have two of those things.
>>
>>1979301
Ok what about a heavy cheap durable bag then? I don’t care about weight as long as it has a frame of some sort.
>>
3F 35L X-Pack if you want light Chinese, ~120€.
Decathlon also has some good cheap choices.
My advice would be go for a pack without too much pockets, it's wasted space. You might want to be more specific on weight, size and price. I have a Lowe alpine flex 25 as my day pack because it was on sales, very handy for work and travels (hidden zippers and hidden pocket makes my passport etc safer), I can use it for small hikes as well. It also helps me figure out what bag size I like and its pretty cheap. I think around 30L one or two pockets is a good day pack for me.
>>
>>1981938
Very few daypacks will have a frame. A full-on frame is excessive but a stiffening framesheet imo improves even the smallest bag in terms of comfort and packing. The nice thing with this is anything designed to carry a laptop also has a nice little place for you to slip in a MYOG framesheet.

What's your budget? I have a few ideas in mind but some of them are pretty pricey. Also, how open would you be to ditching your camera bag and getting a backpack that will organize and protect your kit by itself?

>>1977314
The Talon is a classic and one of the best designed zip daypacks for hiking around, but the fabrics are flimsy and I don't think everything OP wants to fit in there will fit easily.
>>
>>1977133
Milsurp cheap
And durable

>inb4 iphoneposter
pic related is a black carhartt daypack, legacy standard or whichever one had side mesh pockets (fits nalgenes)
great pocket locations, easy accessibility, and fucking indestructible. it's over a year old and quite literally has zero signs of wear. pretty kino too, couple girls have complimented it which is nice
i used an exacto to remove the internal elastic strap and logo, so it might look a little different

i sound like a fuckin ad but i shit you not this is the best backpack i have ever purchased, and at this rate might be my last

just get a bag with a laptop sleeve and put a piece of stiff plastic in there, that's how most military packs work nowadays

What do you guys think of german rucksacks? Got my eyes on a canvas one, and plan to waterproof it. Are they worth it?

>German rucksacks
not necessarily a problem

ive used my ALICE rucksack for years
used the back

fuck i dont know anymore man, fuck

just, i dont know, why would you go back to a canvas mountaineering group pack?

its not ment for hiking or school
>>
>>1984293
Oh god, oh fuck, shit, fuck.... Jk, I will buy it as a fun customization project. A rucksack for casual urban exploration, 1 day trips to the forest and autistically Larping as a STALKER. After all, it's cheap af and looks cool enough, also they are quite rare in my country (bonus points).
>>
>>1984293
they can 100% be for school/edc, you just need to keep it clean and pair it with nice clothing. eg leather shoes, jeans, and a sweater, not sweatpants and a tank top
