    Can't give you advice on the brand, but if you're not doing mountain trekking or hiking, I suggest you stay away from the toploader backpacks, for the sake of convenience. If not, just to find one item, you will have to painfully unload everything on top of it, from a relatively small opening at the top. Just my two cents' worth.

    Pity you don't get the full Millet range in Singapore. It's not too bad either. Better made than Deuter IMO

    I've been using a Macpac since 1999 and its tough and hardy, with a so-called waterproof aztec material.

    Advice for you guys buying backpacks : Get a 30 litre Seal-Line bag from Campers or Soh Brothers at Beach Road so that u can stuff and compact all your clothes inside. http://www.seallinegear.com/vinyl_ba...y=VinylDryBags .. It really helps to compact your clothes and its waterproof too. Its usually used for canoeing expeditions. Also, get a black color rain cover that fits snugly around your backpack too. I usually put on the rain cover at all times, cuz i'd rather dirty my raincover than to dirty my bag. Washing it is a big hassle. The black color rain cover is also to prevent unwanted attention when you're going to rural/dodgy places.

    Cheers...

    Strangely, by clicking "Today's Posts", I think. I must admit to not seeing the date on the post.

    Much more interesting than people registering just to post kowpaykowbu thread on being ripped off by a timeshare scam.

    I use Karrimor. Pretty sturdy with well-padded shoulder and waist straps. I normally load it up to abt 25kg. This bag is much stronger than me.

    The only thing i don't like is the logo which resembles a UK flag. So i covered it with a Singapore flag. I find it wierd carrying other country's flag...

    I have a Lowe Alpine bought in 1988 and its still going strong. Use it 5 or 6 times a year for trips, even school camps and have no issue with it. Maybe the ancient ones are better??

    My vote goes to the Deuter as well, bought one in 1998 and is still serving me well. Whereas the inner layer of my Lowe Alpine bought in 2002 has already worn off.

    Get a Crumpler Karachi outpost or Whickey & Cox, with the internal compartments intact one can use as a camera & laptop backpack. Rip out the internal compartments, & it becomes a normal backpack.

    I have a 48 litre Deuter bought in 1997 (for $88) and has since travelled around the world with me. Still going strong. My best investment ever.
    But can't vouch for the quality of the backpacks now as the manufacturing standards may have changed since the last decade.

    deuter bags are good for travel....i have a 65+10 bag for travel.
    however for daily use...it is not as good cos the inner waterproof lining peels off and become flaky easily. then each time you use your bag like got flakes of skin all over yout things inside. just got a tatonka about 3 weeks back. like what most say, yhe back support not as good....and its funny that this is my 2nd tatonka and have the same problem. when you walk, your shirt will start to get pulled up
    so once a while when i feel my back very cooling its time to pull the shirt down again
