    Good backpacks

    Looking at upgrading the old riding bag and wondering about the Osprey Escapist series and seeing if anyone has opinions, or cheaper/better ideas? Basically looking to pack light rations, water, protection from elements, small repair kit and light fishing gear.

    You can't go wrong with an Osprey, very comfy, well designed, and free repair with no hassles. I have a Manta though, and think I prefer it's Airspeed back panel, which is full tensioned mesh instead of the Airscape's foam (on the Escapist). The ventilation on the mesh is unbelievable - no sweaty back.
