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?

That is a really vague question. Any of the good brand names: Gregory, Kelty, Marmot, to name a few - make excellent packs. You have to decide what kind you want: internal/external frame, weekend/expedition size (how big the pack is, measured in cubic inches), and assorted bells and whistles. The best thing to do is go to a outdoor gear store (stay away from Walmart, Target, etc.) and try packs on - they load weighted bags into the packs so you get an idea how they feel on the trail, and see what fits you best and is the most comfortable. A good pack isn't cheap!

might help if we knew what you wanted it for. If for regular backpacking, you might also check out backpacker.com. The main site does gear reviews, if you can follow directions. I have these two:

northface skareb55


maxpedition's vulture2

both are 3 day packs for survivalists, or weeklong packs for ultralight hikers. Though the vulture is a bit heavy for that.
