I'm looking for a new pack in the sub $250 range. I'm probably just about the only one on here who still uses an external fram pack, but I tend to carry a few "extras" when I head out. I usually start with the absolute necessities like my float tube, fins, waders, two fly rods and my complete fishing bag. After that I add the trivial things that don't really matter. You know, like my tent, sleeping bag and food. So, as you can see, with me being silly and wanting to eat and stay warm and dry at night in addition to the ultimate goal of catching fish, I need a rather large pack. I tend to do a lot of cross country trips, and I'm getting a little too old to be doing it with a loaded down external frame pack, so I'm thinking an internal frame pack is the way to go. I'm trying to keep the cost relatively low, but still get a quality pack. ANy suggestions?
