Looking for an excellent backpack, one that is all weather, does any one have any suggestion? If you have one and it works please would you provide specs on it and if possible maybe some Pics?

Try a GI Large Ruck sack w/ frame. It works, 23 yrs for me anyway

like one your gonna use for school? camping? going to war? Like said before, if you want something thats cheap and all weather, a GI Alice pack, they sell them in small amd medium sizes as well and will work for most of that you need.

i have been using the storm 3600 from kelty and have been very happy with it. i do not know what size you are looking for or its intended purpose, but for a multi day pack that is tough and waterproof it works well i upgraded to this pack from an old military surplus wich also worked well. i wanted something with a hydration bladder
