Okay, so here's the deal. I own five backpacks, all for various needs and applications. I got three for bug out types, I got a heavy gear bag for storm duty ( Tactical Tailor ) and I bought a Victorinox for Urban Travel.

The Victorinox has turned out to be a piece of crap after a year of use.

What I am looking for is a single shoulder style, urban travel pack that will allow me to carry a few pounds of basic gear ( like my 1911 when needed ) and a few daily essentials like powerbars, my Zune/Headphones, a soda or two and my keys.

I don't want any type of aluminum frame, I don't want any multiple day pack that will allow me to pack enough gear for a bug out scenario and I sure as hell don't want any Messenger Bag like the types that have become popular thanks to the infamous Jack Bauer.

So - knowing that. Do any of you have any real suggestions for a reliable, well built, durable, preferably with heavy duty YKK zippers, backpack for the urban environment?

Thanks in advance -

JD

Thanks guys - I had hit several of those sites already - I was kind of looking for the magic bullet "I have THIS model and it's the best damn backpack out there". LOL

Thanks for all the links. I will funnel through them tonight and this weekend before making a decision.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I am going to brave the trip into Seattle to the Super REI ( their flagship store ) this weekend and try out most of the ones mentioned and see what I can find. There are a couple on the list that I hadn't researched yet, so I do appreciate the input.

I'll post the one I end up getting in case anyone else is looking for the same solution down the line....
