    Osprey has some really comfortable and really cool (as in they keep your back from getting sweaty) my EDC is the Sratos 24. Though the Gregory 30 may be a better choice as it can be bought in much better colors for SHTF.

    The Maxpedition Kodiak is really nice, I really like mine, but it gets really heavy on only one shoulder when it's loaded up. My next EDC bag will have two shoulder straps. The bag fits more than you think inside, so it gets heavy quickly.

    I have a Maxpedition in flat dark earth tan laptop bag that is über tacti-cool and I have gotten so many compliments. I wish it was just a tad larger (longer) because my laptop is a bit tight getting it in.

    This is the best advice possible. Go to REI and try on packs in the size (liters) range you need for storage. They will have the best for heavy load carriage options possible.

    I would have suggested a Marmot model I travel with 18wks a year, but REI is sold out of it now. I have had Maxpedition and a few other of those over-built, expensive branded packs. I still have a Versipack. Honestly, for civilian life, I don't see the point in carrying around 1000 denier stuff. It's heavy and needlessly overbuilt... and carries a premium price. My Marmot is 600 denier and does just fine. My Osprey is 200 ripstop and it's been on my back for 5 treks up 14K foot mountains and still is in one piece.

    I don't think the "tacti-cool" stuff has much value.
